HoeDeopBap. It’s my favorite type of bibimbap! The dish is best described as a Korean-style poké, mixed with a handful of baby greens and dressed with a tangy gochujang sauce. A healthy, delicious and nutritious bowl for these hot summer days.
The real kicker to this dish is how visually appealing it is. Look at the vibrant colors – the green on black with the orange! You could serve that at any restaurant at a premium price 🙂
The Korean Hwe (sashimi) restaurant near my house makes an amazing bowl of HoeDeopBap. (This is actually my attempt at recreating their version). The only difference is that they use tuna sashimi, which is diced into smaller bite-sized cubes. And they also cut their cabbage much thinner. I think they are using a Mandolin slicer at a fine setting. Other than that, I believe I did a great job in replicating their hit menu item. Even the tangy gochujang sauce tastes spot on!
With the temperature rising each day, you’ll want something light but filling. Consider a bowl of HoeDeopBap!
