After my trip to Jeonju a few months ago, a historic Korean city known for its iconic bibimbap, the taste of Jeonju's specialty seemed to always be on my mind. To cure my bibimbap craving, I headed to Seopgil Boribap, a bibimbap establishment in Bijeon-dong, Pyeongtaek.
When it comes to mountains, height isn’t always everything. At a mere 685 meters, Maisan Mountain, located in Jianan-gun, Jeollabuk-do, may not be very tall, but it offers a great view of neighboring peaks and unique topography.
Bibimbap (Bee-bim-bop) is one of Korea's most famous foods. Foreigners and natives alike have long enjoyed this nutritious dish of steamed rice topped with many kinds of sautéed and seasoned vegetables, beef, and fried egg.
The best place to get the best of anything is at the source. You want the best pasta? Go to Italy! You’re looking for the best pad thai? Visit Thailand! The best sushi? Duh, Japan! So it’s no surprise that the best bibimbap I’ve ever eaten, I had in Korea.
