The Bibimbap is served up in a hot stone bowl with rice and your choice of chicken, beef, or pork, and is topped with eight different vegetables. The heat of the stone bowl keeps its contents hot all throughout dining, while also gently crisping the rice, creating a delightful crunchy texture in some bites. As always, Bibimbap is served with a side of hot sauce you can add to your liking. Begin by topping the bowl with a drizzle of hot sauce and stir, stir, stir! One of the most popular dishes is the BBQ Short Ribs. This frequently ordered dish is made from Myongís own recipe.
