On a whim, I decided I was going to stop in at CiCi’s for a quick slice last night, but I noticed the new Korean wrap place, GogiBop had balloons and a small “Grand Opening” party going on. I found out they had just opened their doors on Saturday night, so Sunday was their first full day of operation.
Think of this like a BajaFresh or Chipotle of Korean food. Order a wrap or a bowl, rice first and then either beef , chicken, pork or shrimp with remarkably simple and delicious optional toppings that are either grilled (Zucchini, Green Pepper, Onion, Mushrooms, Corn) or fresh (Onion, Cucumber, Lettuce, Chile Peppers). Hidden behind the counter (I had to ask) is an array of sauces. I chose the Sriracha sauce, but the owners started chatting with me and I tried the “house” sauce which was a bit more mild but sweet and yummy, especially with a bit a sriracha added to heat it up.
Sadly, there is no Bibimbap or Bulgogi, two of my most favorite Korean dishes, but at least we have Korean in Frederick, again! When you go (and I think you should), make sure you tell them FMO sent you!
And, just to be fair, you should try Cici’s if you haven’t already. The pizza is very good, very reasonably priced (only $9.99 for 3 pizzas, take-out) and I think the salads are awesome too. Now we have two new choices in Westview.
