Review: Bibigo - Soy Garlic Beef Bibimbap

Bibigo's Soy Garlic Beef Bibimbap features marinated and flame-grilled USDA Choice beef with vegetables and soy garlic sauce over a bed of white rice.

A 9-oz box was $2.99 on sale.

This is more like a beef bowl than a bibimbap you might find at a Korean restaurant.

The beef was pretty tender with some nice-looking seared bits on some of the pieces. It didn't translate to a slight charred flavor but it was pleasing to the eye. There's an enjoyable sweet and garlicky soy flavor to the meat. There's a more intense rendition of the same flavor in the sauce.

The vegetable mix includes zucchini, onion, red bell peppers, and carrots. They were cooked through till soft but not mushy. They're not seasoned much (or at all).

The rice was the weak point of the bowl. It wasn't sticky at all and didn't wick up the sauce very well, which left it feeling rather tasteless.

Overall, Bibigo's Soy Garlic Beef Bibimbap turned out rather well as far as the beef and the veggies go, but the rice was not so great. If you like beef teriyaki but with a lighter sauce, this is similar.
