Best One-Dish Feast - 2010
Dolsot bibimbap from Han Il Kwan
It's almost as miraculous as the New Testament story of the loaves and fishes. Order the stone-bowl bibimbap at this Richmond Korean restaurant — that's one dish, costing less than $15 — and your table will be covered in plates: a crunchy, tangerine-sized mung-bean pancake to begin the meal, followed by nine small plates of pickles and side dishes. Your sizzling rice bowl, its surface covered by vegetables, beef, and a quivering fried egg, will be accompanied by a smaller bowl of tofu soup. And when you're finally overwhelmed and overstuffed, the waiter will bring your check with one last dish: a glass of a sweet rice drink called sikye.
