After moving to America at 3 months old, Steve Shin didn’t have much time to learn the culinary traditions of his native South Korea. But when he returned for a year in 2001, he witnessed the cuisine's slimming properties firsthand. Though he consumed lots of food, his waistline shrank, most likely due to the minimal grease and fat content in South Korean cuisine. Inspired by his journey, he tried to eat a more healthy diet when he returned to the U.S, but after several rounds of salads and sandwiches, fast food lured him back to his old habits. Frustrated, he started brainstorming ways to build healthy and balanced meals, which led to b.b.bop. At his Asian-fusion restaurant, the menu is centered on wholesome bowls of rice, veggies, and protein, steering customers away from heavy, fatty meals, such as a giant butter sculpture.

To whip up b.b.bop's signature entree, cooks line bowls with a rice of the customer's choice, from a jasmine-scented Thai type to a nutty, fiber-filled brown variety. Next, the customer selects a lean, flame-grilled protein from options including pulled pork, chicken breast, or marinated tofu. Veggies such as bell peppers and bean sprouts add color and crunch to the dish, and sauce—the finishing touch—comes in more than a half-dozen flavors, from spicy red pepper to sweet teriyaki.

The menu at Gui Korean Japanese Bistro & Bar shows off the time-honored culinary traditions of the restaurant's namesake nations. Miso soup, edamame dusted with sea salt, and seafood-topped rice bowls represent the eatery's Japanese roots. The Korean side of the menu tends toward hot and hearty dishes such as the spicy kimchi jji gae, flavored with scallions, pork, and, naturally, a liberal dose of kimchi.

The bistro's modern dining room contrasts sharply with the old-school cooking. Strands of lighted crystal beads dangle from the ceiling, dividing the space's two main seating areas. Track lights and conical pendant lamps cast a soft glow across the simple banquettes and gleaming sushi bar. Outside, stout wooden tables populate the bistro's patio seating area, which rests in the shade of a tall tree.
