Review: Ajinomoto - Bibimbap

Ajinomoto's Bibimbap features seasoned beef, spinach, egg, and carrots served over sticky rice with a spicy chili sauce.

A 9.87-oz bowl cost me $3 on sale.

There's not a lot of meat to the bowl but what little there is packs a powerful punch of sweet, savory, and salty soy sauce-based flavor with a bit of sesame oil in. Mixing it together with everything else distributed enough for most bites of rice. It's not dry but there's a slight crispiness to it from the sugar caramelizing.

You can add the spicy chili sauce as you like. It's like a smoky, sweet, and spicy gojuchang. It's not all that tangy but can get quite spicy if you use the whole pouch.

The eggs had a savory flavor that's best enjoyed alone as it gets almost entirely lost when mixed together.

There was a good amount of texture from the carrots--tender but not mushy. The spinach was light in both texture and taste.

As with other Ajinomoto meals, the rice turned out really well.

Overall, Ajinomoto's Bibimbap turned out really well and makes for a convenient and quite tasty alternative to searching some out at a Korean restaurant. There's a good mix of flavors and textures and it's delicious when you mix them all together.
