    1. I've only had it at Boka in the East Village on St. Mark's, but I really enjoyed it! I had the mushroom version. If you're there, you may as well get some delicious wings to go with it!

        ive had the mushroom version too a couple times and i LOVE IT. def recommend.

      2. I am too lazy to go up to Koreatown, so I just walk over to either Bonjoo or Doksuni in the East Village. Both have very good (though I'm not sure about the best) dolsot bibimbaps. Bonus for Bonjoo: nice bar and ambiance, good for a date or smallish group dinner.

        1. Gam Mee Ok on 32nd Street makes a really nice bibimbop. (Go Koong on Queens Blvd is well worth the short trip to Sunnyside if you're inclined. Very nicely done, including dolsot, and numerous ingredient choices. My new favorite.)

            second gam mee ok ... seems like they more veggies than the standard bibimbap you find, and also served with a nice small side of sagolguk (white bone broth that is the base of the sullongtang they are famous for)

          2. I feel obliged to mention Bibimbar, they have good variety and are pretty affordable. It's behind the Setagaya on 1st ave.

            1. I am a huge fan of Jup She (171 Grand St), plus they have buy 2 get 3 beers. Also, Dosirik near Union Square is solid.

                Has anyone tried Do Hwa?

                1. It's kind of hard to screw up bibimbap, but my personal favorite is at Mandoo Bar on 32nd St. Comes in a hot stone bowl, natch.

                    Agreed, had this the other week, very good. Rice gets nice and crispy from the hot stone bowl.

                  2. for standard bi bim bap, go to gam me oak

                    for dol sot bi bim bap, go to kunjip...their kimchi dol sot bi bim bap is excellent

                    1. For a totally cheap, totally watered down steam table version, Cafe au Gout on the SW corner of 30th + 5th, 6.95 feeds 3-4 people at lunch. Bonus is that they have the awesome mushroom stems and a healthy portion of protein (at least when choose the beef option).
