In a recent Facebook post, we asked readers what cuisine they are dying to see more of in the Westchester, Rockland and Putnam area. Someone listened.
Bibille, a new Korean fusion restaurant in the heart of Tarrytown, offers bibimbap that makes for a fresh, exciting quick lunch or meal to-go.
Here’s how it works: You select your base (white rice, brown rice, purple rice or lettuce) and that’s topped with a layer of protein foods (choose from chicken, beef, spicy pork, shrimp or shiitake mushroom). Then, you select toppings, as many as you’d like, including carrot, cucmber, bean sprouts, radishes, beets and cabbage.
The total is $9.99 and is available in a bowl, wrap or salad. Finally, your selections are drizzled with sauce. Choose from Korean hot sauce, house specialty Bibille sauce, teriyaki or lemon-wasabi.
On a recent visit I went for the works: brown rice, spicy pork, all the toppings, and bibille sauce to finish it off. The pork was mildly spiced, so don’t be timid. The mingling vegetables were fresh and crunchy, with just the right amount of tangy sauce to enhance each bite without drowning the natural flavors of each.
If you haven’t been to Bibille, go. It’s really as simple as that.
Bibillé, 14 Main Street, Tarrytown, 914-372-7677.
