    I had the Bim Bop Bacon Eggs yesterday. It was delicious. Seriously yummy – the bacon wasn’t crispy bacon strips but the porky goodness that was in the bowl was wonderful. It’s served in a hot DOLSOT bowl. Which is my preferred style of bibimbap with lots of crispy rice bits. I think I could have used more red pepper heat, though. May ask the next time I go in.

    Had dinner there last night. It was the most confusing dinning experience I’ve had in years starting with walking into uneven floors, having to shout out over a mix of rap music and then 80′s tunes (which alone I like…but mixed together…set a weird vibe). Service good. Atmosphere…interesting. Very nice Northwest feel with exposed beams and high ceilings. But they must have started running low on cash because I’ve sit in nicer plastic chairs in my 3rd grader’s public school class. OK…onto the food. Let me start by saying nowhere do they advertise this as a tapas or family style place (at least not that I have ever heard about). What’s more the dishes are priced in line with full plate offerings…as opposed to the smaller plates that wound up coming out. For example…how do you split up a soup bowl that’s barely enough as an appetizer for one person? It really felt like they had just decided “that night” to try going “tapas” style, otherwise the plates are simply poorly proportioned. OK, now lets get to the MEAT of this place (which you can see them preparing raw right up against the side window…yuk said my wife). But being a meat lover, I was ok with the oddity of that scene and proceeded right in. The lamb was exceptional…what small amount there was. Flank…delicious…on my little plate. DO NO order the broccoli side unless you truly want to experience one of the most disgusting tasting things ever. There is simply no way to describe it other than it tasted like it was cooked by steam from burning (not cooking) steaks, with some strange seasonings embellishing the distaste even further. Will I go back….actually yes, but just for brunch based on friend’s good recommendation. But dropping $$ for the overall experience we had last night. Never again.
