As if the folks at Wero weren't doing enough to bring incredible Korean food to Ballard, they’ve taken it a step further with Bapshim. This build-your-own-bowl spot located in Wero’s back room is a lunch staple that we can’t get enough of. There’s no indoor seating, but it’s perfect for a midday meal between meetings when you’re running on nothing but cold brew fumes.
With hearty (and totally gluten-free) ingredients like purple rice, bulgogi ribeye, silken tofu, marinated cucumber, and roasted corn, there are plenty of flavor and texture combinations to keep things interesting no matter what. And while ordering a little bit of everything is a wise choice, the jammy mayak egg, spicy jangajji, and crisp pickled radish are standouts. Finish it off with a squirt of sesame oil and a sprinkle of gochugaru.
