Now here a great concept, delicious flavorful Korean type food done in a Chipotle concept. The location is right next door to Chipotle where ShopHouse opened for a minute, but don’t let that stop you, these are not the same owners, or for that matter the same food. No this is fantastic Asian inspired, health minded fare. Its counter building food where you pick your ingredients and make your own bowl.
The thing’s that Shophouse lacked Bibibop has capitalized on in a really big way, but once again different owners similar model. I always felt that ShopHouse was just missing something with not serving up the right flavors and really bad sauces. Some of the sauces at Bibibop are Japanese, some are Korean, but all are exactly what the doctor ordered.
A healthy meal inspired by the popular Korean dish “Bibimbop”, literally means mixed rice.
Here’s what I had:
You can choose from:
White rice, purple rice, noodles, or salad.
Potatoes, bean sprouts, and beans.
Marinated Chicken, Spicy, Chicken, Steak, and Organic tofu.
Lettuce, corn, sesame kale, daikon, cucumber, carrot, red cabbage, cheese, and eggs.
Yum, yum, Teriyaki, Korean red, cucumber wasabi, sesame, and ginger.
So the plan is that Bibibop Asian Grill will take over the leases of 15 closed ShopHouse Asian Kitchen locations, the conversions started in early April and have all 15 locations by early summer. The locations are in Washington D.C., Chicago and Los Angeles, there are a few more Los Angeles locations opening very shortly. They were already very established in Ohio with many locations. Soon 3 more locations in the greater Los Angeles area will open: Hollywood, Brentwood, and Santa Monica.
All of the food is just super fresh and wonderful, I am very excited about this very unique concept and know that Bibibop will become part of the foodies staple here in Los Angeles.
