Hae-cho bibimbap

Bibimbap is rice mixed with all sort of vegetables and meat. “bibim” means hash while “bap” is rice. There are different kinds of “bibimbap”. There’s the Jeonju bibimbap, dolsot bibimbap (served in a stone pot), yukhwe bibimbap (one of my faves — slices of raw beef!) and another one that has sashimi or raw fish (forgot the name but this is the best bibimbap for me!).

Last Saturday when we did our grocery at E-mart Seongsu-dong (near Seoul Forest and Ttukseom Resort), we bought some seaweeds as ingredient for bibimbap. It is called “hae-cho bibimbap”. It’s a combination of different varieties of seaweed plus red pepper paste (kochujang) mixed with rice. About 150 grams of cost us 2,300 KRW. Not bad.

And when mixed with rice and vinegared red pepper paste… it makes a satisfying meal!

    another one that has sashimi or raw fish (forgot the name but this is the best bibimbap for me!).>>>> it’s probably hwedop-bap. I like han-chi hwedo-bap better though. not too much into haecho (seaweeds) they leave a strange after taste.
