Recommended specialty yummy food in Jeonju: Hanguk Jip Jeonju Bibimbap | by Meheartseoul
Do you know what is specialty food in Jeonju? Yes, you're right. It's Jeonju Bibimbap! 

Jeonju bibimbap owes its popularity to perfectly steamed rice topped with different vegetables, such as beansprout, carrot, spinach, mushroom, zucchini along with meat, sunny side up egg, gochujang, special soybean sauce, ginkgo, pine nuts, and other ingredients. 

Bibimbap is a wellness food that contains the wisdom and philosophy of ancient Korea, which offering a balance of proteins, vitamins, minerals, carbohydrates and fat.

According to records, Bibimbap was first served at the royal table, then passed down and spread to common people. People started to eat bibimbap in Jeonju two hundred years ago. 

My hubby told me that he saw a restaurant selling traditional Bibimbap since 1952 when guided by kind Ajusshi on our way to the hotel. I told my husband to just find anything to eat, as I might be fainting anytime because of hunger. It's already 3 pm (4 pm Singapore time) added that I was so exhausted after dragged heavy luggage and handbag earlier. I just followed him because he's confident to arrive at the restaurant before I fainted...

While waiting for our food, we saw Ahjumma and chef carefully 
selecting soya beans and washing them. I think they're going to make 
and ferment special soy paste (doenjang).
