An ever-buzzing Korean diner with classic dishes and top-notch cocktails.
Bibimbap's a fresh face on the Glasgow food scene and is the brainchild of head chef Bong and the Rotunda Restaurant Group (Halloumi, Rioja, Pickled Ginger, etc). The small dining spot is an Instagrammer’s dream – multicoloured umbrellas hang from the ceiling and the room is covered in foliage with striking neon signage to boot. Food centres around the restaurant's namesake, a Korean comfort food that consists of a hot stone pot of steaming rice, veg and beef topped with a fried egg and miso broth. Traditional-style Korean fried chicken in a crispy tempura batter is also on offer and is positively mouthwatering, while small dishes like the kimchi man doo give those new to the cuisine a good access point. The gelatinous dokbokki – fried rice sticks smothered in a spicy sauce – are delicious and should not be missed. Bibimbap's cocktail menu is particularly impressive with unique and adventurous mixes that incorporate Korean and Far East flavours. The Seoul Reviver #2 features a refreshing lemongrass-infused soju and an absinthe rinse that really plays with the senses.
