Bibimbap Toronto

The Best Bibimbap in Toronto

The best bibimbap in Toronto is an edible mosaic — with a riot of flavours, textures and colours that add up to one ultra-satisfying meal. With a name that translates to mixed rice, this one requires a little action tableside. But whether you order classic or dolsot bibimbap (served in a stone bowl for extra crispy rice) you'll dive energetically into the task at hand.

Here is the best bibimbap in Toronto.

Several locations, including in Koreatown and North York, prove this mini-chain's popularity with diners seeking Korean comfort classics. Dolsot bibimbap's neatly arranged veg and beef become a delicious mess when whirled together with a fried egg and a generous splash of gochujang.

Despite its diminutive size, this small space in Koreatown beckons diners eager to sate their cravings for Korean classics. Traditional bibimbap translates here to steamed rice layered with stir-fried beef, fresh and pickled vegetables and a fried egg with the exact right amount of ooze.

The name says it all at this lively Koreatown restaurant. A handful of bibimbap options mean you can have yours with shrimp and hot paste, topped with spicy pork bulgogi, or cradling an abundance of savoury, saucy, crisp and chewy stars in a hot stone pot.

It's hard to bypass the special seasoned raw crab at this North York restaurant; just side it with fresh bibimbap to ensure a well-rounded meal. Fresh and colourful, bibimbap here is a hearty bowl of rice with minced beef, a variety of vegetables, and enough sides and sauces to customize every bite.
