Bibim-Box, a Korean restaurant, was introduced to Morehead State students this month.
The Korean cuisine is being served in Third Street Eats. The restaurant serves a traditional Korean dish known as bibimbap.
Bibimbap translates to “mixed rice,” as the dish centers around white rice. The rice is surrounded by a serving of meat. In my case, it was beef, cucumbers, a fried egg, water chestnuts and namul, an assortment of vegetables. The dish is served with a sauce that tastes similar to a sesame sauce but with a little extra spice.
“It’s not what I expected” said Tanner Wireman, a student at MSU. “I’m not a huge fan of the taste but I think it’s just because it's so different than what I’m used to.”
For me, the negative sides of this dish outweigh the positive. It seemed too spicy, the cucumbers didn’t fit the context of the rest of the meal and the separate ingredients were all different temperatures.
On the other hand, the fried egg and white rice was very good. Plus, the addition of a Korean dining option is a good change for Third Street Eats.
At best, it is a good option for those looking for something different on campus.
