HYCH Kitchen Bibimbap Bowls

We worked Oregon Winterfest in Bend, OR, in the snow this year (yes — for real, in the snow!) and one of the highlights of our weekend was treating ourselves to seriously amazing Bibimbap Bowls by local food cart Babe's Korean Kitchen. They were topped with sweet pickled carrots and cabbage, piping hot bulgogi beef and a perfectly fried egg. Of course, we added a drizzle of our own favorite HYCH Bibimbap Hot Sauce to each bowl before devouring every bite. 

Bibimbap is a traditional Korean dish made of steamed rice, steamed or pickled vegetables, protein and (our favorite part!) a fried egg on top. “Bibim” means mixed and “bap” means rice. The proper way to say Bibimbap is “bee-BIM-bap” and we don’t judge, say it however you like!
