Arrived at the scene completely famished as we had walked a looooong distance to Dishoom just to be told the wait for dinner would take up to two hours. Decided to scrap that idea and hit up Bi Bim Bap instead because you can’t go wrong with Korean food, right?

Wrong. 

We both ordered their Dol Sot. 

Rice with julienned cucumber, daikon, bean sprouts, spinach, carrots, mooli and a fried egg. This is a relatively easy dish to make, but they are quite slow in serving their food, not to mention their portions are unsatisfyingly small. The rice didn't stick to the bottom of the pot so it lacked crispiness and the veggies were meh. 

I’m not that picky when it comes to Korean cuisine, but I still hold a certain standard. Not sure what all the hype was about with this place because we both agreed that there must be better Korean restaurants out there…so the exploring continues!
