They all come chock full of veggies – kale, bean sprouts, broccoli, mushrooms, and onion – but you choose your protein/rice/sauce. Fried egg is optional.

I wanted some yolk-y action – plus black rice, tofu, and sesame sauce.

    Oh goodness, veggie bibimbap sounds incredible. I haven’t had it in a long time. I may have to check this place out.
