    JeonjuTraditional Bibimbap

    Bibimbap is one of Korea's signature dishes, consisted of sautéed vegetables, sliced meat (usually beef), raw egg and red chili pepper paste on top of a bowl of white rice. All ingredients are mixed thoroughly when served, and it could be served hot or cold.
    Bibimbap has been modernized and now has a number of variations, the one shown in this photo is the Jeonju version served in a very famous restaurant in Myongdong, Seoul, called Gogung.
    Bibimbap can also be served in a sizzling hot stone bowl; it is sometimes served with raw seafood or chicken instead of the usual meat and sautéed vegetable combination.
    I love bibimbap for its colorful presentation and also how well all the ingredients blend together and has such an extraordinary taste; not to mention that it has just been voted as number 40 on "World's most delicious food" on CNNGo earlier this year.
