6 What is the method that creates the unique flavor of Korean cuisine? open

Known as the most natural and pure method to create flavors, the fermentation process varies according to season and type of food. Kimchi, Korea’s symbolic and fabled side dish, is a product of fermentation that almost every Korean household practices. The fermentation process preserves the vegetable without destroying its nutritional qualities and actually enhances flavor. The healthful properties of fermentation include strengthening of the immune system and defiance of aging.


The secret behind seasoning and balanced nutrition in Korean foods is hidden in a spoonful of jang, Korean fermented pastes and sauces. Jangs are produced from beans and salt which are two ingredients that are believed to carry the energy of the earth and water respectively. And, the time and patience required during the fermentation process results in greater, deeper flavor. Jang often serves as the foundation for Korean foods with its rich, savory tastes. In Korean culinary culture, jang is so important that traditionally families carefully guarded their own recipes and prepared it on a special day chosen for the occasion. Bibigo proudly incorporates its own fermented jang and kimchi into many of the dishes and products we offer.

5 What is the hidden meaning of eating dumplings? open

Dumpling is a symbolic delicacy that is most often shared with friends and families at the beginning of new years. It flawlessly resembles a lucky pouch, which we can metaphorically interpret as a pouch with fruitful fortune.  

Bibigo has taken this traditional outlook and reinvented its image to a modern day finger food option that can be enjoyed together simply and quickly. At Bibigo, we offer delicious Summer Cucumber Dumplings (sometimes called Royal Court dumplings) filled with cucumbers and mushrooms, as well as bite-sized Mini Wontons, filled with fresh meat and vegetables. 

4 What is so special about Bibimbap, the representitive dish of Bibigo? open
Bibimbap – a party food, a dish loved by royals and commoners alike and shared by all – has been a traditional Korean dish of celebration for generations. Bibimbap holds a special place on the dinner table of families celebrating the last day of the year; in the warm, helping hands of neighbors on the farms; between pillars of the royal courts when welcoming royal guests. The 5000-year Korean tradition of sharing and embracing is best expressed in this bowl of bibimbap. Bibimbap contains a combination of protein, carbohydrates and fibers; it is perfectly balanced nutritionally and is filled with diverse seasonal namul and grains, reminding us of the presence of nature in our food. The true attraction of bibimbap is the fact that each ingredient maintains its own flavor while also forming a harmonious new taste with the added soy sauce or red pepper paste. At Bibigo restaurants we have retained the essence of bibimbap while offering choices of grains, vegetables, toppings and sauces to suit the nutritional needs and taste preferences of each person.

2 Where does the brand name Bibigo come from? open

The bibigo brand name stems from the Korean term "bibida" and the English phrase "to-go." Bibida means "to mix" in Korean. So at Bibigo, we're all about mixing fresh ingredients to create a great meal that's easy to eat anytime, anywhere. 

The notion of ‘bibim’ reflects the Korean value of a collective lifestyle, where good fortune is shared, and new things are embraced. ‘Bibim’ is omnipresent in Korean traditions: in the helping hands during farming seasons; in the passing of ‘bibimbap’ bowls among royalties and commoners; and in the memories shared over food on special days. Bibim is our way of sharing, intermingling, bonding, and creating balance. Fresh seasonal greens become healthier when combined with the art of fermentation; And a Korean meal is perfected when rice, soup, and side dishes come together on a dining table. As such, ‘Bibim’ results in synergy in food. Korean food mirrors the openness of our culture, and the way we understand differences and embrace the unfamiliar while optimizing what is new.


Bibigo integrates our modern values with Korea’s distinctive culinary tradition to offer a new lifestyle. We are eager to share with the world the philosophy of ‘bibim’ through Bibigo products and restaurants that represent the essence of Korea’s unique flavor and style.
