Any recommendations for great Korean dolsot bimimbap?

  • 4

Believe it or not, the best dolsot bimimbap (bimimbap in a sizzling stone pot) that I've had was in Bracebridge. I'm looking for recommendations for places in Toronto that serve a great dolsot bimimbap.

Thanks.

  1. in toronto, i'd say Wonjo (at yonge/steeles, aka. Traditional Korean Restaurant much talked about on this board) has superior bibimbap in stone bowl, esp the seafood one if i recall correctly....
    ...am curious about your experience in Bracebridge - was this in a private home or in a resto? as i dont know of any korean restos up there, i'd love to know: please do share

      Thanks for the recommendation.

      Bracebridge - had it at Wabora Japanese Fusion Steakhouse. Unbelievable place!

    2. The best is at Oh Geul Boh Geul on Yonge south of Finch. 5320 Yonge to be exact. I go there a few times a month.

      1. My faves - I'd second "Traditional Korean Restaurant" - a tiny place in a little plaza on the west side of Yonge below Steeles - really great bibimbap, outstanding kalbi ribs, but less than zero on the atmosphere/decor scale - NOT a date spot, if you want to impress. :-)
        Second, I really like Kaori, a newer place just off Yonge St. above Hwy7. This place is much nicer, housed in the former Outback Steakhouse, with great Korean food, especially the dolsot bibimbap and kalbi, and really great Sushi, too - very fresh salmon & tuna sashimi and high-quality maki rolls. They even have tatami rooms. Nice place. Enjoy!
