In many ways, bibimbap is Korean comfort food at its finest. The dish gets its roots from a dish in the 14th century called goldongban. Goldongban was eaten on the eve of the lunar new year as families would clear out their leftovers and put them over rice. Bibimbap is an evolution of this concept. A bowl is filled with rice and then topped with a variety of toppings including sautéed vegetables, sliced proteins, gochujang and soy sauce but the ingredients are aesthetically arranged - a feast for your eyes before your tastebuds! But once you are ready to chow down, all of the ingredients are folded together to create a unique mix of sweet and savory flavors. Bibimbap is a great option for teams looking for a different take on the traditional rice bowl!
It's important to be aware of your eat time versus your delivery time. Bibimbap bowls frequently include a mix of hot and cold ingredients so ordering too early can lead to the bowl becoming lukewarm if it's left out for too long. Once you have that sorted, consider adding a fried egg to add some extra texture and umami to your meal!
Korean cuisine is a unique blend of sweet, savory, and spicy flavors. Fresh vegetables as well as fermented ingredients such as kimchi are frequently present. Common sauces used for Korean dishes are soy sauce and gochujang.
Simply put, gochujang is Korean cuisine's answer to hot sauce. But the process to make it can be much more complex than you think. Rather than chilis blended with garlic and sugar like many hot sauces, gochujang introdcues salt, fermented soybeans and rice powder to the mix. In the 18th century, this mixture was then left to ferment in terracotta pots for years. The result is a hot sauce with an exotic and complex flavor that brings out many of the elements frequently found in bibimbap and other Korean dishes.
Can I make my order gluten-free?
Yes, but some options are not gluten-free because they use soy sauce. Very few restaurants will use gluten-free soy sauce. Look for the (GF) indicator next to a dish to know if it is gluten-free.
Are there vegan and vegetarian options for Individual Korean Bibimbap Rice Bowls?
Yes! Bibimbap can be made without meat or you can substitute meat for tofu or vegetables. Be careful though because kimchi can sometimes include fish sauce! Just look for the (V) or (VG) designations on each item as you put your order together!
How much should I order for my team?
One bowl should be enough for each of your team members as it features a protein, a starch or vegetable base and a variety of vegetables but you can always order additional sides if you think you'll need more!
What goes well with Individual Korean Bibimbap Rice Bowls?
Popular sides include dumplings, additional kimchi, spring mix salads and Korean fried chicken. You may also see banchan or japchae on a menu! Banchan are small veggie sides that can be eaten alone or as a topping for your bibimbap. Japchae is a popular sweet potato starch noodle.
