A popular Korean restaurant in Glasgow has announced that it is set to open a second venue in the west end.

Bibimbap, which is located on West Nile Street in the city centre, opened in March this year and has been very popular with Glasgow’s residents for its quirky style and modern Korean cuisine.

The eatery is named after a Korean comfort food (pronounced as ‘bee-beem-bahp’) which consists of a bowl of warm white rice topped with vegetables and chilli pepper paste, soy sauce, or fermented soybean paste.

As well as this famous dish, other Korean treats including Kimchi, deopbap, Yum Yum fried chicken, soup and noodles feature on their menu.

A selection of Sakis and quirky cocktails are also on offer at their quirky bar.

The new 40 cover West End restaurant is due to open in January 2019 and location is under wraps with announcements expected over the festive period on the restaurant’s facebook page.

Bibimbap manager Joe Cassidy said: “We are very excited to be expanding our business in Glasgow.

“The team have enjoyed a brilliant few months since we opened our doors on West Nile Street earlier the year and we have been overwhelmed with the feedback from our customers on our food, our drinks and culture of our restaurant brand. Glasgow’s West End is thriving with incredible independent restaurant operators and we look forward to joining the neighbourhood.”
