I'm a huge fan of bibimbap—in fact, it's actually one of my most favourite Korean dishes because it's got a good mix of vegetables and meat, along with all sorts of yummy goodness. Therefore, when we were at Insadong (인사동), we decided to have lunch at Gogung (고궁), a traditional Korean restaurant which specialises in Jeonju bibimbap (전주비빔밥). We ordered Set C which came with: Jeonju bimbimbap, bibimbap in a hot stone pot (dolsot bibimbap 돌솥 비빔밥) and a seafood pancake (haemul pajeon 해물파전). The side dishes we got consisted of kimchi, anchovies with peanuts, potato soup, a bowl of bean sprout soup (kongnamulguk 콩나물국); and a green salad. We even got a cup of fruity Korean tea as dessert.

Conveniently located inside Ssamziegil (쌈지길), Gogung offered one of the best bibimbaps I've ever had so I highly recommend this restaurant even if you're not a huge bibimbap fan like me. The pancake was fried well and had good amount of seafood in it—it was crispy and it didn't feel like I was eating uncooked batter. There weren't many side dishes, but they were different and had good flavours. Plus, the service was also good and the atmosphere was really nice.
