Square Meal 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

Winner of this competition’s Innovative List of the Year in 2013, Bibigo scored well again in 2014. At just 30 wines, Raphael Thierry’s list is one of the smallest in the competition, 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.

    The Swindian :: Bibigo Bar & Restaurant

    How did I survive before Korean food? Bibimbap, the subtle sweetness of bulgogi, the beauty of jap chae… I’m salivating at the mere thought. My first time was a little over a year ago in New York City, and since moving to London, I have made it a point to visit as many Korean restaurants as possible. So far, my favourite had been Bi Bim Bap in Soho, with its unassuming Ikea chairs and steaming stone bowls filled to the brim. But last week I went to Bibigo and … well, let’s just say I have two favourites now...
