Young Lee, the head chef at Bibimbap Edinburgh, has over 20 years of hospitality experience and will oversee the opening. He said: 

“There is huge appreciation right now for Korean cuisine in Scotland –  with mouthwatering foods dominating the internet and K-pop enjoying enormous popularity. Foodies in Edinburgh can now tuck into our extensive menu, which includes a variety of traditional and modern Korean dishes and enjoy tastes of downtown Seoul in a vibrant, colourful venue that plays homage to K-Culture”. 

The original Bibimbap, located on West Nile Street in Glasgow, opened in March 2018 and has been very popular with Glasgow’s residents for its quirky style and modern Korean cuisine. The eatery is named after a Korean comfort food (pronounced as ‘bee-beem-bahp’) which consists of a bowl of warm white rice topped with vegetables and chilli pepper paste, soy sauce, or fermented soybean paste.

Bibimbap Edinburgh will open Spring 2023 at 96 Hanover Street, Edinburgh EH2 1DR.
