The best places to get Korean bibimbap in Vancouver

Jan 5 2023, 5:39 pm

Bibimbap is one of those dishes where the name tells you exactly what you’re going to get.

Translating to “mixed rice with meat and vegetables” – “bibim” means mixing, while “bap” refers to rice – the Korean dish is probably one of the better-known dishes internationally.

There are many different versions and variations of the dish – like dolsot bibimbap and yangpun bibimbap – and it can be made according to dietary restrictions and preference, but generally, it consists of some type of meat, vegetables, and an egg on rice.

Because of this, it’s one of our favourite dishes to order at restaurants around the city, with some spots shining a bit brighter than others.

Here are the best places to get bibimbap around Vancouver.
