Bibimbap came to life as a passion project from the restless mind of designer and food enthusiast Courtney Kim, owner of the successful graphic design company Symphonic Pixels. As the name suggests Courtney’s truck serves delicious bibimbap. This Korean staple is made authentically with hand-picked local produce with the option of beef, chicken or tofu for the vegetarians and vegans. What’s more, all dishes can be served gluten free. Kim’s version of this classic dish is served with fresh salad which makes it perfect for a healthy lunch or a light dinner and her own secret recipe hot sauce … the ‘I’ll tell you but I’ll have to kill you’ kind.
One year in and countless food truck park residencies down, Kim has snapped up a 6 month lease on Punch Lane in the CBD for Bibimbap Backyard, her first fixed location. The branding and truck are designed by Kim while the site is designed by interior architecture agency Zwei. Themed as a classic Australian backyard, this ordinary laneway is transformed into a nostalgic summer scene complete with 70s Eskies, washing line parasols and tropical plants.
Catch Bibimbap for lunch Monday – Friday 11am – 3pm and at Laneway festival this weekend.
