The prices have gone up for the bowls here, but I still crave them every once in a while since there aren’t many Korean food options in the FiDi. BibimBar is a decent option for a quick, satisfying lunch.

I learned my lesson last time and got the regular spicy sauce instead of the super spicy sauce this time around. I like this place even though it’s not the best Korean food. It’s a nice break from all the lunchtime sandwiches and salads in the FiDi.

This was really yummy and satisfying, but I completely underestimated the spiciness of their “super spicy” sauce. I ate it all, but my mouth was on fire for most of the duration. Next time I’ll opt for their medium spicy.

This wasn’t the best bibim I’ve had, but it was decent for the price. I liked that you could customize the toppings and sauces though. And there was a decent variety of items to choose from. It was fast and convenient so I’ll probably go back. I just wish they’d throw in a bit more protein.
