Bibigo - Healthy Korean Food

Bibigo is a restaurant at Raffles City, which isn't far from where I worked.

I've been there twice now - once for lunch and once for dinner. It is a Korean dining chain that serves healthy Korean food.

I find their bibimbap (Korean mixed rice in hot stonepot) and seafood pancake a bit too oily though so I'm not quite sure about healthy part. But they do use pretty healthy ingredients in all their dishes.

Their spicy rice cake comes with sweet potato sticks and ginko nuts, for example. The seafood pancake also comes with lots of shredded zucchini and spring onions.

2 things I will definitely be back for. One is the yummy salad (I forgot the name) which came with baby spinach, tofu, mushrooms, cherry tomatoes, Korean rice cracker and a very tangy sauce.. The other is the house specialty - bibigo rice - a hybrid between mixed rice and salad. For this, you choose the type of rice you want (brown, white, white with barley or black pearl rice), the meat (or tofu) and sauce that you want.

I really liked this salad - something I'd come back to Bibigo for

The seafood pancake was good but too oily for my liking

I've always liked spicy rice cakes - this one is good but is definitely more sweet than spicy

Another dish I'd be back for - bibigo rice. It's like a salad with rice. 

The takeaway box is most impressive

That looks like nice food! My few encounters with Korean food have usually involved large quantities of meat, and kimchee - which I find utterly repellent!

Hi Mark, I know what you mean... I used to think badly of Korean food because of the same reasons too! But not anymore.. I realised there are lots of other options in Korean restaurants - like spicy soup and cold noodles!
