A variation of bibimbap, dolsot bibimbap
(dolsot meaning "stone pot"), is served in a very hot stone bowl in which a raw egg is cooked against the sides of the bowl.
The bowl is so hot that anything that touches it sizzles for minutes. Before the rice is placed in the bowl, the bottom of the bowl is coated with sesame oil, making the layer of the rice touching the bowl golden brown and crisp.
The city of Jeonju, the capital of the North Jeolla Province, is famous throughout the nation for its version of bibimbap, said to be based on a royal court dish of the Joseon Dynasty.
