Ready for some more Korean? This time we headed to the South but no, it's not Senopati, we're going to the mall, which is Pacific Place! I kind of forgot what this was before but I know that it hasn't always been Bibigo. Well, it's all in the past, which is not important anyway!
Located on the 4th floor, the place is pretty easy to find, just look for a big lighthouse in the middle of a made up ocean! Bibigo is a Korean branch restaurant, which is under CheilJedang or CJ, who also holds Blitz Megaplex. Because of this, now you can order some of Bibigo's dishes at Blitz to accompany you, while you're watching a movie!
Interior's pretty cool, all mirrors and wooden furniture with a seaside dock theme. You can even dine inside the lighthouse or even better, on the boat! Yes, there's an actual boat..lol! Well, no matter where you choose, the most important part must be the foods, right? So let's get started!
KOREAN CHOPPED SALAD IDR 35K
Napa cabbage, radicchio, papaya, bean sprout and black sesame with fried spring roll pastry and Korean sesame dressing.
Because this salad is made out of a lot of ingredients, which are not only veggies, I find this very satisfying! :p You might think that the portion is way too small for the price but it's because this salad is a part of a set that I'll explain more below!
RED CHICKEN IDR 45K
Deep fried chicken glazed with sweet & spicy Kohot sauce.
*Kohot sauce is Bibigo's hot sauce made with Korean red chili pepper paste Gochujang.
My favorite Korean snack, so of course I think this is super good. A bit spicy but good! The same goes for this as the salad, this is also a part of that set, which costs only IDR 35K for the salad and this yummy red chicken!
USAMGYEP BULGOGI; BIBIGO BEEF BULGOGI IDR 180K
Brisket beef bulgogi marinated in teriyaki sauce with authentic Korean kimchi and fried tofu.
+Set B (Korean Chopped Salad & Red Chicken) IDR 35K
This is the set I'm talking about! So if you get any of the dish in the same page as this, you can add set A or B. For this bulgogi, it's no mistaking of how good it is, I think all the meats here are good! If only they have pork..lol! Now, I'm not a big fan of tofu but my friend said that even the tofu is good!
PREMIUM HOT STONE GALBI IDR 250K
Char-grilled U.S. beef ribs marinated in Bibigo's special sauce.
I wonder how different the taste of this and the normal galbi that only cost IDR 180K, is it more tender? More flavorful? I guess it is, it's supposed to be, right? Well, anyway like I said before, all the meats here are good and this is no different! Though the rib's bone made it look like short ribs, is it? Okay, too many questions for this dish but it's really good, trust me..lol!
SOY SAUCE CHICKEN SKEWER IDR 50K
Char-grilled chicken and mushroom skewer marinated in soy sauce, topped with minced pistachio and Bibigo's special Kohot Sambal sauce.
You know that this restaurant is good when not only their beef tasted amazing but also the chicken! Love how complex they try to make out of a simple chicken skewer. I mean, minced pistachio? Who would've thought of that? Thumbs up!
SPICY BEEF FLANK SOFT TOFU SOUP IDR 80K
Spicy soft tofu stew with beef flank in a sizzling hot stone pot.
I'm not a big fan of sundubu jjigae, especially with seafood, so it's a good thing that they have a beef version. Since my friend loves soup, we decided to give it a try and I'm actually glad I did! This is actually pretty good, it's spicy but very flavorful and generous with the topping!
JANGJORIM BIBIMBAP IDR 75K
Bibimbap topped with braised beef in soy sauce, fried egg and assorted vegetables in a sizzling hot stone bowl.
A bit disappointed that this bibimbap doesn't go with gochujang sauce, instead it's only soy sauce but we didn't want to get the usual bibimbap, since there's no meat in it! Well, sacrifices had to be made, so we went with this. Good thing that even with only soy sauce, this bowl of rice is pretty satisfying!
DENG-GALBI; BACK-RIB WITH CHEESE IDR 180K
Steamed back-rib in sweet-spicy sauce combined with cheese.
We've arrived at the highlight of today's dining experience!! You can really tell that this will be good even by just looking at the picture, right? Yeap, this is super good! Can you imagine a tender sweet and spicy ribs dipped with melted cheese? It's my heaven on earth! What's even better is that there's fire below the hot stone to keep you cheese from crusting and stay melted! Perfection!
This is food for 3 girls..yes, you can call us monsters now..lol!
This is actually my second time dining here and I still think it's good! I would definitely not mind to have to come back here again! Maybe I should try getting this while I'm in the cinema? :p
