Bibigo is a compound word formed from the idea of “bibim,” drawn from “bibimbap,” and the English word “go.”
“Bibim,” or mixing, represents the balance and harmony of different elements, while “go” represents the will of bibigo to lead the globalization of Korean food.
Bibigo’s logo likewise draws its inspiration from bibimbap and the hot stone bowl, spoon, and chopsticks that present it. The hot stone and bowl maintain the temperature of food so you can enjoy its flavors until the end.
The earliest historical records of bibimbap date back to the late 1800s. Bibimbap made its way into the in-flight meal menu of Korean Air in the start of 1990s. Quickly it became one of the most popular in-flight menu items in the world. Bibimbap is also a good option for weight-loss diets by many online foodies.
