I am excited about telling you about Bibimbap as it is the most favorite food I have ever eaten in Korea. No need to recommend eating! I am Gazi and I have been living in South Korea since 2023. I love to explore K-world. 

Actually, I did not know about Korean food much more when I arrived and even I did not too much fascinated. After a few days, I got a chance to work with Koran people at a Burger Shop called Burgers Almighty at Shinsegae Departmental Store.  A bowl of Bibimbap, came from a shop, which was next to our shop, was my first Bibimbap that I had. Then I simple thing happened to me that I fell in love with Bibimbap. Then I carefully started exploring Korean food. 

Bibimbap is significantly popular and is one of the traditional Korean dishes. If you translate into English, then it sounds like “mixed rice”. 

Bibimbap bowl consists of warm white rice topped with an assortment of sautéed and seasoned vegetables (known as namul), gochujang (Korean chili pepper paste), soy sauce, or doenjang (a fermented soybean paste). Often, a fried egg and sliced meat (commonly beef) are added. The ingredients are mixed together thoroughly before eating.
