It’s been over two years since the Korean chain Bibigo opened its first U.S. location in Westwood Village, bringing fast food bibimbap and spicy pork to UCLA students and Westwood office workers. And while writers who got treated to free meals raved about it, those of us who spend any time in Koreatown were slightly less enthusiastic. A great Westwood lunch option, no doubt. But nothing to get overly excited about.
Staying true to its goal of becoming the McDonald’s of Korean food, Bibigo has opened two more L.A. locations since then, Including a “casual dining” location in Beverly Hills and most recently an outpost at the Century City Mall food court. And even more recently they added a few new items to the menu at their Westwood location, one of which is worth checking out.
