Korean cuisine in DFW is generally confined to the area’s two Koreatowns, but a new eatery will bring the cuisine’s most iconic dish to a location in Frisco later this week.

Burning Rice is putting the finishing touches on a second outpost at 3930 Preston Road, reports CultureMap. The fledgling chain opened its first DFW location in The Colony back in January, and serves up a menu of build-your-own bibimbap bowls that can be served in a piping-hot stone bowl.

The bowls start with a foundation of rice (perhaps steamed brown or kimchi stirred rice) and can be topped with one of eight proteins, including pork bulgogi, spicy chicken, and short rib. The bibimbap is then topped with a selection of banchan, typically served as small side dishes, like sliced fish cake, kimchi, and bean sprouts.

Burning Rice is set to make its debut in Frisco on Friday, May 19. In the meantime, check out one of Dallas’ essential Korean restaurants for a crash course in all things bibimbap.
