Walk-Up Bibimbap Window Added to Deli Near Ballston Metro Station

Ballston residents and workers can now get a hot Korean meal in a flash.

The 900 N. Stuart St. deli Mike’s Cafe opened a walk-up window last week that serves the rice, meat and vegetable dish bibimbap.

Owner Mike Kim said he wanted to offer a healthy, “trendy” lunch option.

“From the offices, they’re looking for something original,” said Kim, a 56-year-old Fairfax resident who opened the deli five years ago.

Bibimbap will be served from the window daily from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. The meal costs $8.19 and is available with marinated beef bulgogi or less traditional options including pastrami, corned beef and ham.

Kim said he prefers serving customers sandwiches, salads and more in Ballston over his previous work in the steel industry in his native Seoul.

“This is more interesting,” he said. “I like so much to meet new people.”
