Bonjour Babsang is a Korean soup restaurant opened by a mother and her two daughters. The name of the restaurant comes from their goal to work until they can open a restaurant of their own in France. The menu posted on the wall is very neat. Each item is engraved on a long and thin wooden plate with calligraphy style fonts. Instead of using the original name of the Korean dishes, such as seollongtang, gomtang, doganitang, they instead use cute nicknames like bongbab (short for Bonjour Babsang) tang, clear bongbap tang, and red bongbap tang. They serve many dishes that go down great with a few drinks, such as suyuk (boiled beef or pork slices), yukjeon (meat pancake), and yukhoe (Korean style raw beef). Their ingredients are all locally sourced. As for the meat, they use 1+ grade Korean hanwoo beef for top quality flavor. When the meat is brought in, the blood is drained, the meat is boiled for two and a half hours under low heat and the fatty portions are cut away. This is their secret to making a clear and clean broth. Beef with chive bibimbap is also another popular menu item. Bean sprouts, beef, seaweed, mushroom, and chives are all piled on top of rice. They use soy sauce and sesame oil instead of red pepper paste to complete this bibimbap. With its aromatic flavors, don't be surprised if you can your bowl in minutes. From November through March they offer tteokguk (rice-cake soup) as a seasonal dish.
