Bibimbap Toronto

The Best Bibimbap in Toronto

The best bibimbap in Toronto brings this soul-warming medley of rice, meat and veggies together in a hot stone pot. Takeout means you won’t get the sizzling component that comes with the dolsot experience, but this Korean bowl of wonders will hit the spot any way with its ingredients and a vibrant addition of gochujang. 

Here’s the best bibimbap in Toronto.

As its name suggests, this "riceteria" on Eglinton West prides itself on its mixed rice meals. Their versions come on white or brown rice, with eight veggies and your choice of protein on top. They’ve also developed their own hot sauces with varying levels of spice.

This Korean mini-chain has expanded to three locations since it first opened in Koreatown in 2001. While tofu is the specialty here, the bibimbap with beef, zucchini, egg and bean sprouts remains a fan favourite.

Naengmyeon noodles are the claim to fame at this comfortable Thornhill spot but nearly everything on the menu is good, including their jangjorim bibimbap with beef flank instead of basic sliced beef.

Hanjeongsik, a multi-course meal that brings a collection of 12 dishes straight to your table, is the experience that sets this restaurant on St. Clair West apart. In lieu of this dine-in feast, opt for an order of fool-proof bibimbap.
