Foreigners in Korea know how convenient Korean food can be to eat: a simple roll of kimbab from the mom and pop Kiimbab Nara, a triangle kimbab from Family Mart, or street food galore. But now, Korea is trying to make a popular dish even more take-out friendly: bibimbap. The new restaurant, Bibigo, is sponsored by CJ Foods, and it opened yesterday in Gwanghwamun, Seoul, and it serves take-out bibimbap meals. You can order bibimbap with your choice of rice, meat, and sauce on top for about 7,500 to 8,000 won.
The restaurant hopes to further its chain in the next few years, opening around 1000 stores.
