    비빔밥!!! icon_lol.gif

    One of my many, many Korean favorites! It's so incredibly satisfying and have no problem polishing off a whole bowl myself.

    I love the ones served in the cast iron bowl. The "pegado" that forms on the bottom is awesome!

    I absolutely love that too! You can eat bibimbap hot, cold, or room temperature. However, I eat it hot most times exactly for the "pegado" haha icon_wink.gif

    The best is when you have bone soup that you can add to the iron bowl to scunge out the hardened pegado.

    Yummmmmmms.

    We have one of these in Westwood Village, just off of UCLA's campus. Love it.

    I'm pretty slow at cutting and chopping things, so this meal requires quite a bit of patience from me. It's kind of difficult sometimes because I'm often hungry as I'm preparing it icon_redface.gif

    I have heard that a number of Korean Americans call Dallas/Ft. Worth home.

    I just looked up Korean restaurants and there's one within 25 minutes of where I stay. Maybe I should go try it out.

    Highly recommended! I think bibimbap is one of the more Western-palatable Korean dishes, so it's worth a try.

    Love Bibimbap. There's a pretty good Korean place close to my house, so I've been able to enjoy it a few times. Love the hot stone crispy rice on the bottom of the bowl.

    I don't find bibimpap filling at all. In fact, most Korean and Japanese dishes leave me dissatisfied.

    I went to UCLA. I've been to K-town plenty of times, had plenty of Korean BBQ, and eaten plenty of banchan.

    Please note, I LOVE the flavor. Just doesn't stick to the ribs. Although if we're going for Korean comfort food, I prefer to get a nice big crock of soondooboo.

    I think you have a point. I can't think of any Korean dishes that make me feel FULL. Bibimbap to some extent, but that's only if the restaurant serves them in the gigantic bowls and huge portions.

    As far as comfort food goes, it's a toss up between bibimbap and kalguksu. Jajangmyun is a close runner-up. Basically, anything with a lot of carbs. icon_biggrin.gif
