Q | What are the most popular items on your menu? Why?
A | Our spicy chicken is the number one item on our menu. Many people like it because it kicks up their BIBIBOP bowl another level, but isn’t too spicy. Everyone seems to enjoy it!
Q | Are there any items NOT on your menu that are staff favorites (that you’d be willing to serve up to any customer who asked)?
A | Probably our gluten-free options. We’re willing to make any of our proteins gluten-free for our guests, and all they have to do is ask! It adds a little bit of a wait time for their order, but we’re more than happy to accommodate everyone.
Q | What makes the rice purple? Is it a special type of rice?
A | The purple rice is actually a combination of black wild rice with our white rice. When the two are steamed together, it dyes the rice purple. It’s a completely natural mixing process; no special dyes or additives.
Q | Are there any super creative orders you’ve gotten that have stuck with you?
A | With so many combination options at BIBIBOP, there isn’t one order that sticks out. However, our most popular sauce is actually one that our guests create. It’s a mixture of our Yum Yum and spicy siracha sauces.
Q | What does “BIBIBOP” mean?
A | It’s an Americanization of the Korean word “Bibimbap,” which literally means mixed rice.
What sauce combo do you love when you visit BIBIBOP? (For me, it’s the teriyaki and yum yum!)
