Elementary School Lunch: 12/12 - Winter Bibimbap

Food, JapanKristina PinoComment

It feels like forever since we last enjoyed bibimbap in our school lunch! Today's was good: some namul and scrambled egg and pork to top our rice with, and a side of Tok soup. The namul comprised spinach and bean sprouts, while the meat was mixed with some onions. As for the soup, it had the barest hint of a kick to it with a dash of pepper, but was otherwise nice and mild for the kiddos. Tok (or tteokguk) soup is a New Year's dish which consists of a thin broth and loads of rice cakes. Ours also had bits of bamboo, shiitake mushroom, onion, carrot, and cloud ear fungus.

One of my favorites.
