Build your own bibimbap in Redwood City

Uploaded: May 23, 2018
Almost every cuisine has been adapted to Chipotle's fast-casual, build-your-own model.

In Redwood City, customers can now create their own Korean bibimbap bowls at The Bap, which opened earlier this month at 2090 Broadway St.

At the modest, fast-casual eatery, choose your base (brown or white rice or a salad mix) then add vegetables (from pickled cucumber and sprouts to roasted seaweed, kimchi and burdock root), proteins (bulgogi beef or pork, chicken or tofu) and sauces (gochujang or a house soy sauce). For $9, customers can choose up to five vegetables. Proteins cost an additional $2, except for the $1 tofu. The bowl comes with miso soup on the side.

Or, diners can opt for a wrap version ($12) with their desired protein, brown rice, roasted kimchi, pickled radish, cabbage, diced onion and cilantro.

The Bap also serves fried chicken, plates of Korean short rib and bulgogi and daily specials including salmon dup bap -- grilled salmon over rice with fish roe -- and japchae glass noodles, stir-fried with vegetables.

We need your support now more than ever. Can we count on you?
