Its good to try out their traditional hot stone pot bibimbap at this very old restaurant with long history and which apparently had a number of awards too. The chicken bibimbap is very tasty compared to the pork one, and we really love to scrap out the rice crust at the bottom of the pot as its crunchy and fragrant (like eating rice crackers). Apart from the meat, there's an assorted of veggies and a raw egg being arranged beautifully on top of the rice which I think it's consider quite a wholesome meal on its own. The food here is certainly a bit pricey but it's really good to try out the food which comes in piping hot especially in cold raining night.
