bibigo rings in the Korean New Year (also known as Lunar New Year, or Seollal) with a special three-course, prix fixe dinner menu, highlighting dishes traditionally enjoyed on the holiday. Available through February 28, 2014, guests can explore authentic Korean cuisine—like the signature bibigo Steamed Bun, Braised Short Ribs and Korean Sweet Pancake. The limited-edition menu is available for $25 per person at the Beverly Hills location exclusively.
Additional celebratory items offered for a limited time include Tteok Mandu Guk, a dumpling rice cake soup commonly enjoyed during the Seollal holiday. According to tradition, the white rice cakes in the soup represent a clean start and new beginning for the new year, while also bringing good fortune. The soup will be available à la carte with a side of kimchi for $10. An optional pairing of soju, another symbol of Lunar New Year revelry, is also available for an additional $3 ($6 value) and includes a traditional soju, Korean plum wine, and Korean raspberry wine.
In further celebration of the Lunar New Year, bibigo is giving away “Gunbeh Back” VIP cards to all guests who order the Seollal menu or Tteok Mandu Guk. Gunbeh, a play on the English translation of the Korean word for “cheers” offers cardholders a 10% discount at the Beverly Hills location, as well as a special 60% discount on their birthday (throughout 2014).
The limited-edition “Seollal Supper” menu includes:
Steamed Bun, grilled spicy pork in a steamed Chinese Bao with pickled radish, cucumber, and hoisin teriyaki
Braised Short Ribs, marinated beef ribs served with daikon, shallots, chestnuts, green beans, carrots, and chili
Korean Sweet Pancake, served with ice cream and raspberry
