This fast-casual restaurant puts a Korean spin on Chipotle, with build-your-own-rice bowls that let you choose vegetables, condiments and other toppings. After the bowls spend some time in the kitchen, your pager buzzes and your creation emerges. Enjoy your hard work with a massive bottle of Hite beer and some friends. There are other Korean mainstays such as kalbi and hand-crimped potstickers, but the very best reason for coming to bbbop is the “Not Your Mama’s Fried Chicken.” Order the sweet and spicy version and another jug of Hite and get ready to melt away into a salty, fatty, chicken-flavored bliss. Look for more locations in the future, in DFW and maybe even far beyond.
