This new chain introduced by my cousin, Bibigo, is a franchise from Seoul itself and has preivously opened first in the States before finally arriving in our Raffles City basement!
Their signature dish was definitely the customize bibimbap (hot stone mixed rice) from the choice of rice, either barley white to black pearl rice, then the meat should it be chicken, beef or vegetarian.
It was a totally new way of eating and a presentation that you wouldn't find anywhere at any Korean store! The fresh vegetable is placed at an interesting packaging and the spice is then mixed to our own, and there was a dash of almonds on top of the rice!
Took the black pearl rice to give such experimental dish with gochujjang paste - the usual red paste. There are many other different types of sauce you can choose as well, that comes in a packet instead of a sauce dish.
The taste was different - it was more raw and clean since it was definitely less or even no grease than the usual - no half boiled egg as well. It has a clean finish to your tongue and you definitely have space to eat for dessert! The portion is slightly smaller than most place, it just sits nicely in your tum with the kimchi side dish as well and anchovy top.
I mean yes I prefer the greasy one...
cos it has more taste... but as for the whole presentation this place is totally pretty and super health conscious that when you eat more you don't feel the guilt at all!
Service tends to be quite slow as when you come at a lunch hour its always, always fully packed.
