Today's Odd Post

What's Bibimbap?

No, it has nothing to do with Israel's current Prime Minister.

And yes, that's the correct spelling.


Pronounced pibimp͈ap, it is a popular Korean dish. The word literally means "mixed rice" or "mixed meal."

Bibimbap is served as a bowl of warm white rice topped with namul (sautéed and seasoned vegetables) and gochujang (chili pepper paste). A raw or fried egg and sliced meat (usually beef) are common additions. The ingredients are stirred together thoroughly just before eating. It can be served either cold or hot.
