Pine Street Market on a Thursday was bustling with the lunchtime crowd. Place your order, take your pager, and stake out your spot. Short rib bibimbap ($14) was huge but had too many ingredients, flavours, and textures going on. Meat was tender and tasty, but...More

I’ve most definitely had better Bi bim bap. $10 for the bowl itself, then another $5 to add the Galbi short ribs. They were pretty tasty, but the bi bim bap itself was odd. Combo of kim chee and grated apples on top? The egg...More

Friends I had dinner at the Pine Street Market and, after a stroll around the options, I decided to try some bibimbop from Kim Jong Smokehouse. Overall: average. Service was efficient but not especially polite. The food was edible and filling, but hardly amazing; it...More

went there for lunch last week. The guy at the cash taking orders was less than helpful and even to the point of being rude. Will not recommend anyone to go back for that kind of service. Food was only mediocre and not hot.

Had some great bibimbap and a beer. The dish was a nice size, and it was ready quickly. They offered several options for meat and for sauce.

Had a couple of pork buns - wish they were a bit bigger for the price of $4 each. Had some tasty kimchi mayo sauce with it. Would come back and try more!

We tried the chicken and short rib bowls - surprised the bones came but super delicious. Sauces were delicious - tried two of them (spicy and sweet one). Couldn't finish the bowl but kept eating it way past full because it was so good.
