Best Bibimbap in Greater Vancouver?
Can anyone tell me where to get the best bibimbap in Greater Vancouver?
I figured I may as well find out since this dish is listed as one of the world's most delicious foods (according to CNNGo readers' poll).
What should I be looking for when seeking out THE BEST?
Thanks in advance.
If you've never had it before, be aware there are (at least) two versions. The one I like best is called dolsot bibimbap and is the one where the dish is made in a screamin' hot stone bowl so that the exterior rice becomes crispy and delicious after sitting on your table for a few minutes.
Generally the best Korean is in the 'burbs here (Burnaby, Coquitlam) but I am sure some board experts will weigh in as I am not well versed.
House of Tofu Soup on broadway, which sadly closed in 2008, made an excellent dolsot bibimbap that came with a bowl of equally tasty soondubu. I still miss it. The version at the robson street Jang Mo Jib can be quite good but is a bit inconsistent. Their daikon kimchi is always great though, and their gal bee is outstanding. Nor Boo up the street also has a good d.s.b.b.b. I agree with tinfoilhat on Hapa's version.
I've been meaning to check out North Road but didn't know where to start. Thanks for the Insadong recommendation!
