CJ Foodville announced that the Soho, London branch of its Bibigo restaurant has appeared in the Michelin Guide London 2015. This is the second time since last year that Bibigo was registered in the Michelin Guide.
According to the Michelin Guide, the Soho branch is introducing people to healthy staples such as bibimbap and soju cocktails; its hot stone galbi and bossam are especially recommended. “It’s enthusiastically run and won’t break the bank,” it added. Its menu also includes Bibigo goldfish, a sundae similar to black pudding, Gangnam tongdak coming with chicken and beer, and nickel-silver pot ramen.
At present, about 80 percent of the customers are locals, and its sales are expected to increase by 20 percent this coming year. A second branch in the U.K. is slated to be opened early next year.
CJ Foodville is currently running 11 Bibigo restaurants in Korea and 13 in the United States, China, Singapore, Britain, Japan, and Indonesia. The company is planning to open more branches in at least 10 countries by 2016.
