Dolsot Bibimbap at Be Bop – Berkeley

Dolsot bibimbap - be bop - food fashionista

I orderd the Mushroom Dolsot Bibimbap with a fried egg. This dish is served in a scorching hot stone bowl, so do not attempt to touch, fondle, or lick the bowl. As with most Korean dining establishments, you receive complimentary banchan (side dishes), and it was a welcomed sight to see sliced burdock served. As usual, bibimbap is satisfying and filling, and usually quite the deal. This version was under $18 with gratuity. Staff was super gracious and sweet considering we had an active (understatement) 18-month old with us. In hindsight, I’d definitely not recommend ordering this dish if a child’s hands are in close proximity to the bowl, but cravings over safety (nah, just kidding). Just keep the bowl far, far away.

Great casual spot to go with a friend or yourself while shopping on eclectic, charming College Avenue.
