With over 22 restaurants throughout the world, Bibigo is internationally known for its signature bibimbap and Korean-style tapas dishes. The flagship restaurant recently opened in Beverly Hills in the former Mako Sushi space on South Beverly Drive’s ethnically diverse “Restaurant Row”. Armed with an arsenal of Korean flavors, Bibigo packs a punch and offers small plates, organic teas, freshly made cocktails and many local wines and spirits.
The Beverly Hills location is the second LA location and sister to the Westwood Village location that recently opened and the space has its very own test kitchen that is used to demo new products for their own Bibigo-branded foods line.
According to “Expansion Wire”, a well established online site for the hospitality industry, Bibigo’s management is currently scouting spaces around LA for more restaurants to open later this year.”
When Psy is taking a break from performing he frequently visits the flagship Beverly Hills location to dose up on their authentic Korean food in Beverly Hills 90210. Psy’s favorite dish is the bibimbap, and he gets it all of the time.
The Hot stone concept:
Besides Korean mainstream staples such as Bulgogi and Kimchi, guests can order a standard hot-stone signature bibimbap or create their own with fixings such as shrimp, chicken, beef, spicy pork, black pearl rice, an assortment of sauces, tofu, gobo and kimchi.
“Tea time anyone?” Not your mad hatters tea room but enough tea combinations for a mad scientist to go mad. Safe bets are the South African Riobious and the Jasmine Green tea that are served in an endless modern clear glass tea kettle.
