Looking for a meal that’s delicious, relatively nutritious and cheap? Check out Jinmirak‘s dol sot bi bim bap, a large stuff-your-stomach-full bowl of rice, a variety of veggies, meat and an egg still cooking on top (sometimes the egg is already fried). The descriptive “dol sot” means “stone pot” so the dish is served in a really hot stone bowl where you can still hear the food sizzling away as they bring it to your table. One recommendation: let the bowl sit for a few minutes before mixing it all up — lets the rice cook a bit more so that it ends up with a yummy, crispy edge to it! Mmmmmm … can you tell I’ve had my share of bowls for practice?
