The Best Bibimbap in Jeonju

Over at Zenkimchi, Rob McGovern has written a thought provoking article on where to get the best bibimbap in Jeonju, but there's one place he hasn't mentioned...

중앙회관 offers the best bibimbap experience I've ever had in that lovely city and I highly recommend a visit if you have the chance.

For 10,000 won you can get the 옛날 가마솥 비빔밥 (Old Style Stone Bowl Bibimbap) and it's worth every penny.

Plus their 해물 파전 (Seafood Pancake) for 10,000 won is worth splashing out for. Crispy, crispy joy on a plate.

So there you have it, my personal pick for the best bibimbap in Jeonju. All that remains is for me to try out Rob's recommendations... I'll be heading down to Jeonju in August for a little bowl of bibimbap heaven.

Dude! That's the place I always go when I go there. Did you go to Veteran for Calguksu? It's amazing.

Paul Ajosshi said...

Glad to hear you've tried it to! As for Veteran... directions please! I'm always on the lookout for good noodles.
