What I like about Choi's is that it's run by a cute old couple, the few times I've been they've been nothing but friendly and helpful. Choi's has all the Korean basics to get you by and for a town this size, it is enough and better than driving all the way to [insert big city name here] for some chile paste, banchan goodies and kimchee.
I was most intrigued to try their bibimbap for lunch. The woman at the cashier is also the cook, so I just chilled out and browsed the aisles while she multi-tasked.
The reward: a box with rice topped with a soft-fried egg with perfect creamy oozy yolk, some slices of marinated grilled beef, and banchan-like items of mushrooms, greens, sprouts and pickled vegetables. Plus, the tub of Korean chile sauce. And some seaweed soup on the side. About $8.
I don't have much experience with what makes bibimbap an "authentic" bibimbap but if there's a cute little old Korean lady making it, I'm pretty happy. And so seemed everyone else in the queue behind me.

Hot lunch food is served only during lunch hours, monday-friday (I think!), as in, they are open Saturday, but no bibimbap.
