Thanks to a food blog on Korean and American cuisines, Nosh on me, for her wonderful picture above. As for the meaning of the dish, 돌솥 means "stone bowl", and 비빔밥 is "mixed rice". There is a huge convenience of 돌솥 비빔밥, which is a Korean classic dish, making it easy to cook. I've prepared another picture from a food blog, Korean Cuisine, in case you were hungry. You can thank me later, just say 잘 먹었습니다, 감사합니다 (jahl-muh-guhs-ssouhm-nee-dah, kahm-sah-hahm-nee-dah).
The biggest part about this dish, is there is a certain way to eat it. Some dishes are presented to look good, but you have to mix it up to it's "boring" state to get the full punch of the flavors. Trust me, this dish is a must for your first time. Also, this dish comes with side dishes and a 비빔밥 sauce. Here's what they look like:
(I don't know all the names for these dishes, but they are all called
which literally translates to "side dish")
And the sauce (고추장):
The sauce is not too spicy, but it has a sweetness spicy flavor to help the blandness of the rice. All this talking about 반찬 and 돌솥 비빔밥 is making me in the mood for some 순두부찌개.
Until next time, 안녕히 가세요.
