Stone Bowl

I apologize for the extremely grainy iPhone photos. I just can't bring myself to lug the real camera around.

I feel like I have been on some sort of Asian food kick recently. First it was ramen. I mean I really don't think that one needs an excuse. And now Stone Bowl. (Unfortunately their site isn't working at the mo) Stonebowl is a new Korean BBQ and Bibimbap restaurant. Jennifer, Stef, Joleen, and I ventured down on Friday night and the place was packed! We decided to go down last minute so we didn't make reservations, but if you would like to be seated right away...
Since we didn't make any reservations we had a 30 minute wait so we hunkered down at the bar to grab a few. Jennifer being the classy one ordered herself a glass of wine to wait -- we had beer. The extremely friendly staff ended up seating us sooner than expected so we shuffled over to the booth (in which there is a sweet button that you can press to call your waiter. What?! I know.)

We put our order in and the waiter brought us a few snacks to tide us over. The food came unexpectedly quick! I ordered the pear bbq beef with rice and the girls each ordered bibimbap. The bibimbap is served in a scalding hot stonebowl, hence the name. The idea is to mix your food quickly before you eat to heat the food in the bowl. If you let it set a bit before mixing you get some delicious crunchy rice chunks. (Seriously so good. And my beef was so delicious. Who would have thought? Pear and bbq. Hmm?)

After dinner we all gave into peer pressure and each of us ordered mochi. Typical.

This is the first Korean joint I've been to in MKE and it was seriously delicious!
If you're ever looking for a new place you should check it out. The prices range from about $8-$15 and they have amazing service. OH! And  the catchy Korean pop music!

  1. Yum!!! Ramen and Korean BBQ are both some of my favorites. It's funny - Chinese food is probably my least favorite cuisine, and it's the one that I should technically like the most!

  2. Yay for dolsot bibimbap! Well, the food looks lovely, I've been craving bibimbap for a while!
