Bibimbap is a Korean classic whose name translates to “mixed rice”—a reference to the technique of stirring the dish’s ingredients together table side. Our seasonal version features hearty sweet potato and crisp, refreshing red choi (a bok choy relative with deep purple leaves) sautéed with gochujang, a traditional hot chile paste. For welcome crunch and pops of gorgeous color, we’re topping the bowls with marinated slices of sweet persimmon and watermelon radish.
