Foodies in Edinburgh can now tuck into our extensive menu, which includes a variety of traditional and modern Korean dishes and enjoy tastes of downtown Seoul in a vibrant, colourful venue that plays homage to K-Culture". The original Bibimbap, located on West Nile Street in Glasgow, opened in March 2018 and has been very popular with Glasgow’s residents for its quirky style and modern Korean cuisine. The eatery is named after a Korean comfort food (pronounced as ‘bee-beem-bahp’) which consists of a bowl of warm white rice topped with vegetables and chilli pepper paste, soy sauce, or fermented soybean paste. Bibimbap Edinburgh is now open daily from 12 p.m. at 96 Hanover Street, Edinburgh EH2 1DR. To view the menu and learn more visit https://bibimbap-edinburgh.co.uk
