A witch's boiling cauldron couldn't be any hotter than Jeon Ju Restaurant's sizzling black stone pots of the rice dish bibimbap. Dol sot (meaning stone pot) bibimbap is this Koreatown restaurant's specialty. Four of the eight variations are packed with healthy ingredients, including one with tofu, another with seven kinds of vegetables, and a couple with chestnuts, gingko nuts, jujubes (red dates) and beans, one of them cooked with butter. Meat lovers can choose between galbi (rib meat) or bulgogi (thin sliced beef) combined with lots of vegetables and an egg that cooks in the mixture. And there's more - a generous assortment of banchan, plus soup, which makes this one of the best $10 lunches in town.
