Have you ever eaten BIBIMBAP (KOREAN MIXED RICE WITH MEAT AND ASSORTED VEGETABLES)?
Bibimbap (비빔밥) is probably one of the most well-known and beloved Korean dishes to many people.
Bibimbap simply translates to “mixed rice with meat and assorted vegetables“. You can make endless variations to this dish depending on your preference and dietary requirements.
We tried making it our own Mauritian way and needless to say, it was an explosion of flavour.
Highly recommend it!
