We’ve been following the construction of the three new restaurants coming to Lowest Greenville for several months now. Yucatan Taco Stand Tequila Bar & Grill opened yesterday, and next door bbbop Seoul Kitchen just announced it will be opening its doors next week, on April 20. The third restaurant, Rapscallion, still has a ways to go.

owners shotbbbop Seoul Kitchen will be headed up by Steve Shin and his chef sister and brother-in-law; Sandy has been a private chef for ten years, and Greg Bussey was most recently executive chef at The Joule Hotel and Victor Tangos.

The menu has been divided into four main sections and includes all new recipes and options:

Bi Bim Bop (Korean rice bowls) are a variety of crafted bowls consisting of rice, vegetables, protein, and an egg.  New to this section is the “For Realz Bop” with all-natural short rib and braggs amino seasoned vegetables. Also new to this section is the option to substitute apple cider pork belly or all-natural short rib for an additional charge.

interior bbbopHanshik (Korean entrees) are Korean classics with both Bussey chef’s touch as well as banchans (Korean sides) made with locally sourced vegetables that change with the season. All of the dishes in this section are new with the exception of the Krispy K Wings.

Anju (Korean small plates) includes kalbi lettuce wraps, glazed pork belly, mandu potstickers with hand rolled skins and more.

And of course the Build Your Own Bop, where a guest chooses one protein, one carb, three vegetables, choice of toppings and choice of made-from-scratch sauces.

Unlike the other bbbop location on Upper Greenville, alcohol will be served at the spot on Lowest Greenville. There will be a selection of Asian beer, soju (a distilled rice liquor), soju cocktails like green tea mint lemonade soju and hibiscus limeade soju, makkoli (alcoholic rice beverage that is a milky off-white sweet drink) and bek se ju (a fermented alcoholic rice beverage flavored with a variety of herbs — ginseng being most prominent).

Enough words. Check out these food pictures!
