This Menu Mashup takes the big, bold flavours of bibimbap off the traditional base of crispy rice, and swaps it for a perfectly crunchy tostada. Featuring flavours of Korean bbq, this tostada is piled high with marinated beef, cabbage slaw, a fried egg and fiery gochujang sauce. Every bite is the perfect combination of sweet, spicy, salty, and crunchy!
