They recently added Pork Belly and Salmon to their list of gluten free add ons for the (supposedly gluten free) bibimbop. I ordered it with pork belly. The server told me all the little dishes of kimchi were gf except one made from tofu. They served me miso soup, which I did not touch for fear it was made with barley miso. I now have a terrible stomach ache. Either it was a cross reaction from the quinoa in the bowl or something was marinated in wheat containing soy sauce. I appreciate their efforts to offer gf menu items but the servers don’t seem terribly well versed.
Stomach was weird after eating dolsot bibambap - Nima tested my leftovers and “gluten found” sad because this was one of my go to restaurants.
They have some but very few gluten free options. A few vegan and vegetarian or egg dishes are gf but NONE of the meat is. All of the meat is marinated in soy sauce. Also their tea is barley based, they do have a corn tea if you let them know u are gluten free. The food is great, there is just not many options here. They are very knowledgeable about what is and isn't gluten free as well.
Great take out. Fresh tasting. Egg was a bit runny-still gel like white part. Will definitely go back.
I had been craving Korean food ever since I was diagnosed celiac and I finally found some that was GF friendly! Their main dish is 'Bibimbop' which isn't exactly fast food korean BBQ... but it's so much better. The mung bean pankcakes are delicious (and vegetarian as an added bonus). It was healthy and tasty and the staff was super friendly.
They list on their menu which options are GF, which are somewhat limited, and not all the staff were knowledgeable about gluten free. I originally order a steak meal, but then was told they don’t serve it any more, so I ordered spam rice rolls. When they first brought out the rice rolls, they also brought out a spicey mayo sauce to go with it. I asked and they said the sauce wasn’t gluten free (but the waiter serving us didn’t know and had to ask somebody else). They apologized and brought me out gluten free soy sauce after that. When I had finished the rolls, I ordered some rice rolls wrapped in bacon which were listed as GF on the menu. When bacon rolls came out I found they were fried in oil, which I wasn’t expecting and the menu didn’t indicate that they would be fried. I asked if the oil they were fried in was used to fry food containing gluten, and the waiter didn’t know and went to the kitchen to ask. A different waiter then came out and explained that she didn’t know exactly what gluten was and whether or not it is in wheat, and after I confirmed that gluten is in wheat she told me the bacon rolls were fried in the same oil as their fried chicken (breaded). They were nice and took back the bacon rolls and I didn’t have to pay for them, but I think the bacon rolls should not be labeled as GF on the menu as they truly are not. (Not celiac friendly) I didn’t end up ordering anything else after that. I did not get sick from the first spring rolls I ordered.
So the food was decent. The hot bowl was good, and the rice rolls were not! Service was not good. Place was empty and the staff was still unfriendly, eating lunch, and looked like they didn’t want to be bothered. When they came to the table they super rushed you! Literally 2 tables when we came in. One other walked out Because of bad service. They were obviously playing Pandora with all the swear words. I had my two kids and it was f bomb city on the radio. Good thing my kids know not to talk that way. They could actually have something special if they got their act together. The price was way too much for the quality. Probably won’t be back. They were gluten knowledgeable but....doesn’t make up for the short comings. I’m the type of person to leave stellar reviews too....sad 😩
