A short walk from the home is an all you can eat bori-bap restaurant where you make your own bibimbap. They also have a hot line but I did not take a picture of it. =(

In the bottom of the bowl you put sesame oil, rice or barley (barley is better imho)various vegetables such as bean sprouts, lettuce, various Korean vegetables that I dont know the name of (if anyone can tell me the name of the brown veggie please do) and put a dollop of gochujang on the top. To eat it you mix it all up so the sesame oil and gochujang permeate every bite. Yum. One of my favorite foods.

This soup is called Denjang Chigae. Another one of my faves. Can you tell I am no respector of persons when it comes to food? =) Usually it is made with a seafood broth, vegetables such as zucchini, onion, green peppers sliced, soybean paste and tofu added for good measure. It is very delish and is a meal in itself with a serving of rice.

Eek! My mouth is watering!!!

If you want to learn how to make Korean foods please look up MaangChi on Youtube. Very sweet lady and will answer all questions too!


  1. ummmm that sounds so good! I have to go fix breakfast for sure now, you've made me hungry! lol BTW How is your foot? Healed up I hope. Mine's doing great, out of the cast and only have to wear the boot brace when it bothers me.

  2. I love Tofu and I have to say that both of those dishes you showed look yummy!! ;) Thanks for the link to MaangChi's YouTube page, I've been watching the videos and may try my hand at cooking some Korean food! =0


  3. Oh yeahhh! Bibimbop is one of mine and my husband's favorites. There is a local Korean restaurant here in O'side and we have made it our 'Special Treat' place.

  4. By the way...
    There is a 'brown veggie' that is usually in our bibimbap. We have been told they are mushrooms, however, what you have in the pic doesn't look quite the same.

  7. oh, you made bibimbap and doenjang jjigae. My mouth is watering, too.
    I love the stainless bowl. : )

  8. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm - what a great picture to see first thing in the morning. There is a place in Michigan that serves it in a stone bowl so it comes to the table hot and sizzling! Mix it up with an egg and yum! I think I know what I want for dinner tonight.
