Guksu means “noodles,” whereas the bap in bibimbap means “rice.” The bibim guksu served on Korean Air, like its counterpart bibimbap, also received the Mercury Award for great in-flight catering. The distinguishing feature of the dish is the slightly spicy sweet and sour sauce, and—when done right—just the right amount of sesame. Often popular in warm months, the invigorating flavors also awaken the senses on lazy summer days. Try it on your flight in, or have fun running around town trying the same dish in different places to discover the variety of ways it can be prepared.
