DJ’s Super Honest Food Review: CUPBOP!
Friday night, I went out to a restaurant that many people don't know about: CUPBOP!
They're located next to Albertson's in Washington behind Hart's Gas Station.
Cupbop is a Utah-based Korean BBQ restaurant with over 140 locations worldwide now! They've also been featured on Shark Tank where they reached a deal with Mark Cuban for $1,000,000 for 5% equity!
Walking in on a Friday night, it was pretty empty! I was really surprised. The employees were working on online orders but got to us right away. The staff was friendly, but the staff in the back was a little rough around the edges. Maybe not the most appropriate conversations and words coming out of the kitchen. I didn't mind much, but a young conservative family would have probably not liked the words coming from the kitchen. But the restaurant was clean, and the signage was bright and fun!
Cupbop is somewhat a competitor with Panda Express... But WAY BETTER, in my opinion! Cupbop can be SPICY if you want it, they give you the choice of sauce on every bowl (Scale 1-10)
REMEMBER: When you get your food, it has a lid on it. You need to SHAKE YOUR FOOD UP before enjoying. Get all the sauces and foods mixed together.
I went with my friend Brayden. He ordered The Combo Bop: Rice, Noodles, and two choices of proteins or veggies ($10.95). They load the bowl with steamed rice, and potato noodles (sounds weird, but they're awesome!), BBQ Spicy Pork, Korean Style Tangy Fried Chicken, then your choice of sauce (spice). He ordered the Level-4 sauce with it.
He also ordered a side of Mandoo: 3 Deep-fried potstickers ($2.75).
When It was my turn to order, I went with The Combo Bop as well. But with mine, I went with BBQ Spicy Pork, and BBQ Beef. ($10.95) Like Brayden, I also got the Mandoo. I love a potsticker! ($2.75)
We started with the Mandoo (Potstickers). AWESOME. Crunchy! Delicious. I only wish they would have given me something to dip them in. Like a soy sauce or teriyaki sauce. 8/10!
Brayden's Combo Bop:
"That was good! Sweet, Spicy, a lot of food! 10/10!"
DJ's Combo Bop:
SO DELICIOUS! TONS OF FOOD! Almost hurt my stomach eating all of it. I'm totally full. The Level-4 spice was pretty dang spicy! My nose was running. But It was awesome! 9.5/10. But I really don't know what would make it a 10/10. Maybe a little bigger bowl to contain everything better?
Likelihood of going back:
YOU HAVE TO TRY THIS PLACE!
