[Review] Bibigo

Striving to serve their customers with healthy and fresh Korean food, Bibigo is a Korean restaurant chain that has opened their doors in several countries, including US and UK, and most recently, Indonesia.

Pajeon; Seafood Pancake - 55thousand
It is a Korean style pancake, with leeks, squid and shrimp; and served with citrus soy sauce.This is slightly different than the normal 'pajeon' we've had previously which had a thick coat of eggs and flour; whereas this had an abundant amount of what they state in the menu - leek, squid and shrimp. Although it was slightly oily, we'd still give it a thumbs up.

Hot Stone Galbi - 180thousand
Char-grilled beef short ribs marinated in bibigo barbeque sauce. This is perfection served on a plate! It was perfectly seasoned, soft and tender beef, absolutely no complains about it.

Spicy Beef Soup Bansang - 95thousand
Spicy beef soup boiled with bracken, leek, mushroom and beansprouts, served with rice and banchans. The soup is mild, yet there is that spiciness that kicks at the same time. Normally "Yukgaejang" tends to taste heavy, but this was light and clean. A good switch from our go-to Sundubu (Tofu) Soup, which we've heard raves from our cousins.

Bibigo Ice Flakes - 45thousand
A summer staple in Korea, shaved ice with sweet red bean and ice cream. With this dish, you need to mix all the ingredients together, like what you'd do to Bibimbap. Such simple ingredients but tastes amazing, a good dessert to end the meal.

Bubble Pop - 45thousand
A harmony between tropical fruits such as pineapple, guava and mango. We were expecting something more tropical, but we can't taste any of the tropical fruits as the grenadine syrup was a little too overwhelming.

Overall we had a good meal, they definitely performed what they aim to serve, which is healthy and fresh Korean food. We came out of the restaurant feeling good and all smiles. Though it was on the more expensive side, it was worth every penny paid. We'll definitely be back, so look out for out Take 2 posts. :)
