Bibimbap restaurant review

If I find myself out in Soho with a hunger and a tenner in my pocket, I'll often head to Bibimbap - a Korean restaurant that serves the rice-plus-topping combos the restaurant is named after.

There are five veggie bibimbaps on offer, and if you count the Dol-sot dish - the one that features on the restaurant's logo - without the egg, then there are five vegan bibimbaps on offer too.

A bibimbap is basically a large mess of white or brown rice, with veggies and tofu on top and served in a sizzling hot bowl. There are two sauces on the side - one chilli, one miso - that you pour on top of the dish, then stir the whole thing up. That's one of the joys of bibimbaps (the dish) - that you're encouraged to mix it up to your taste. Don't like chilli? Leave it out. Like chilli? Pour enough on to kill a small elephant.

Normally I go for the tofu or the kimchi choices - they're lovely and won't set you back more than £7 or £8. More importantly, they'll keep you going for hours - you'll find yourself filling up before your bowl empties.

The restaurant is an informal, plastic-chairs-and-tables type place. The service is a bit brusque, but who cares? The food is cheap and good - go try it out.
