Squaremeal Review of Bibigo Bar & Dining ?

The Bibigo chain’s mission is to commercialise Korean food for the global palate, and its first European venture seems to be doing the business. Branded marinades and sauces line one wall of the smart and accessible dining room, which combines warm wood and traditional prints with Soho-style trappings such as polished concrete and filament bulbs. The menu of heftily priced staples includes traditional bulgogi (char-grilled marinated beef), galbi-jjim (braised short ribs), bo-ssam (succulent pork belly with ginger, spring onions and pine nuts wrapped in lettuce), and bowls of rice-based bibimbap served four ways – although most votes go to the crispy-fried red chicken glazed with sweet, spicy sauce. Keen young staff whisk around with steaming plates of food while chopstick-twirling customers soak up the action and spice. Look out for competitively priced set menus.

Wine List Of The Year Finalist

With just 30 wines, Raphael Thierry’s list may be considered quite small, but it’s proof that careful selection can trump sheer size, particularly when it’s put together with such imagination. Wines are grouped according to what food they’ll work with, and also whether you’re looking to amplify the spice (‘Korean palate’) or soften it (‘Western palate’). Bravely brilliant.

    wendyeats :: Bibigo | wendyeats

    Amazing for the price! Modern design, quite quiet (I’m surprised it’s not as crowded as it should be given the great food and amazing price!) and spacious. There’s also a bar to sip on some cocktails before dinner!

    Can’t lie that the high rating is slightly swayed by the price! My favorite dish here is the Hot Stone Galbi (char-grilled thinly sliced beef ribs on the bone marinated in our barbecue sauce) which I LOVE, but it isn’t part of the dinner menu and it’s £12. The food on the dinner set is not as amazing but still good – I always go for the seafood pancake and flat bulgogi. There’s something about...

    AnnieThing for Food :: AnnieThing for Food: Bibigo Soho - Restaurant Review

    Korean cuisine is new for me. It's been so trendy lately with the Kimchi burgers, Korean barbecues and Bulgogi mentioned everywhere, it was time to try it. I was expecting it to be good, and worth the wait. And it was. Apart from the Kimchi itself, which didn't particularly float my boat - it is after all, cold fermented vegetables...

    Soho is inundated with restaurants from every cuisine imaginable, so it took some review-reading to settle on Bibigo. Quite a modern, sleek dining room, with wooden tables, bricked walls, and an open kitchen. Staff were lovely, although the door at the entrance is a bit of a...

    Half a Slice of Toast :: Half a Slice of Toast | Bibigo

    Just behind the hustle and bustle of Oxford Street, is Bibigo, a restaurant labelled as serving healthy and fresh Korean food. I’ve been here twice, both times for their set menu, which provides great value – £9 for a 3 course lunch or £13 for a 3 course dinner. Both lunch and dinner provide salad to start, followed by options for a starter and a main. The options vary depending on lunch or dinner, with dinner providing more choice, but it didn’t really make much difference to me. My favourite dish from Bibigo, by far, is the Korean chopped salad, which is served as standard on their set menus. It’s wonderfully crunchy...
