bibim is a relatively new korean restaurant in allston. ugh, pork belly forced me to check it out.
the ambience doesnt feel like a korean restaurant. cozy, more like a cafe.
banchan – the potato one is usually my fave banchan, but this was wayy too sweet.
since when korean food tastes so sweet and subtle? not sure if they are trying to cater to non-asians, i sure didnt like the food at bibim. never again. it’s almost comical when i read the 1st line on boston global ‘Nothing at Bibim, formerly Color restaurant, has been Americanized and the heat hasn’t been toned down either.‘ it’s completely the opposite haha.
i wish bibim was a cafe or a dessert place; very cozy to hang out, but for korean food, i would walk down the street to Seoul Soulongtang
if you must try this place out, i heard their bibimbap is good.
