Bibimbap (Glasgow, West End) : Review

V: 28th December 2019


I have never been to Bibimbap in Glasgow before, but now that I stay in the West End I spotted that Bibimbap opened a new location in the spot where Nam Tuk Tram Stop was….so I had to to check it out.

Looking Around

One of my favourite places to visit was a place called Nam Tuk which Bibimbap now occupies so I knew how funky inside was…..so how was it now?

The layout inside is excatly the same, but the design is different.

The first thing I noticed was that the funky wall artwork has now been removed, and that the bar now looks much more minimalistic and cleaner.

What I really liked was the cool multicolours umbrellas and the neon signs on the grassy wall….that was very nice.

The Food

As I said I had never tried here or any Bibimbap before, so it was going to be a very random choice tonight.

Appetiser

Ya Chae Man Doo (v) £5.20

Vegetable Dumpling

So I have had dumplings before in the past, so I thought what better way to start and compare the food here was to try these.

These were very nice, really good flavour and had a slight crunch to the texture. Dipping them in soya sauce also enhanced the flavour, and I really enjoyed these.

Korean style sweet & sour prawn

I spotted that this said it was spicy, but to be honest I thought maybe it would have a tiny kick to it….well I was wrong…

WOW firstly this was VERY spicy, but that could just be me as I am not that great with mega spicy foods.

Secondly the flavour was amazing!!!, if this didn’t have such a kick this would have been a perfect main for me.

I am very impressed with Bibimbap, and glad I visited here.

Tonight food wise was really good, but WOW that main was super spicy for me….next time something not as spicy and I will double check with the waitress lol

I had heard a few weeks back that a change was coming to Nam Tuk, and it was with regards to the menu. Some dishes added and some dropped, but I didn’t know what ones…

I know I have been here loads recently but the food is very good, so when I heard this I was like ohhh noooo so I had to take a visit and sample some dishes…plus this is where I will be filming my next Blogger Meets Blogger YouTube Episode….so time to do some research.

The Food…

Starter

Mixed Seafood and Chive Dumplings £6.95

This is a new dish on the menu, and I have had dumplings from a few places near Nam Tuk and thought just meh….so I had to try these to compare.

Instantly after the first bite, it was an explosion of flavour and even with the sauce still amazing.

For me this is the place to go for Dumplings if you are in the West End of Glasgow.

Salt & Chilli Chips £2.95

I love Salt and Chilli Chips and have only found one Chinese that does them really good, so I thought lets see what here is like.

These are just as good as that Chinese, and EXTREMELY moreish!!!!

I know it says chilli but its not got a massive kick which is perfect for me, so please dont be put off by the name if you dont tend to go for anything chilli.

These are now as MUST order for me along with the Yam Yam Wings.

Traditional Chicken Curry £9.50

I had not had a chicken curry for a long long time, normally its a Korma or a special curry so a traditional one sounded good.

This hit the spot! YUM sums it right up!!

Portion Size : 5

Value for Money : 5

Overall

Overall I was a little nervous when I heard here was changing the menu, but tonight put my mind at ease!.

I will be back as I visit the West End a lot these days, so I will keep trying different dishes and let you know what I think.

See you soon.
