Bibimbap Soho - my first taste of Korean food.

This tasty little restaurant is located down Greek Street in Soho. A fantastic central location perfect for a quick bite before going out or for a break from shopping.

And that's just its convenience.

Experiencing my first meal at Bibimbap Soho wouldn't have been right without trying the signature Korean dish: Bibimbap. My chosen dish to devour was chilli chicken complete with a fried egg on top. Served in a sizzling hot stone bowl, as soon as the dish hits your table you are presented with delicious fragrances of garlic and chilli combined with the chicken, rice and vegetables. I wasn't sure of the best way to tackle this dish or that I'd even manage to finish it (but of course I did), but quickly learnt that mixing the ingredients with  your chopsticks is vital to avoid the rice sticking to the hot bowl and that the crispy rice even adds to the flavour and textures.

If that hasn't wetted your appetite enough, throw in a side portion of Jap Chae (pan fried glass noodles with vegetables, seasame and soy sauce), a bottle of Hite (lush Korean beer), very affordable prices and I guarantee you won't be able to say no!
