I’ve got a culinary tale for you that’ll make your taste buds dance. Let’s talk about Cupbop Korean BBQ in Provo, Utah. If you haven’t heard of it yet, buckle up because this place is a flavor rollercoaster!

Last year, when I was just new to Provo, I was wandering around and I stumbled upon Cupbop! And there it was, like a beacon of deliciousness calling my name.

The vibe at Cupbop is super chill and friendly (one of the reasons why I kept coming back after the first try!). It’s the kind of place where you instantly feel at home. The décor is simple but inviting, with a touch of Korean flair that makes it unique. It’s casual, it’s cozy, and it’s the kind of place where you just know you’re going to have a good meal.

But let’s get into the heart of Cupbop’s story, which is as fascinating as its food. The brains behind this gem is Junghun Song. Together with his pals, he dove into the food truck scene back in 2013, and boy, did they make a splash. Their idea? To serve Korean BBQ in a cup (hence, Cupbop), making it easy and fun to enjoy on the go.

Their journey wasn’t just a walk in the park. They faced challenges, worked hard, and kept spicing up their menu. And guess what? Their dedication paid off big time. They caught the eye of the big guns on “Shark Tank” — yeah, the TV show where entrepreneurs pitch to investors. All the sharks were hooked, and that’s saying something!

Now, Cupbop is more than just a food truck. It’s a beloved spot in Provo where everyone, from students to families, lines up for a taste of their mouth-watering bowls.


Here’s the scoop on what makes Cupbop a must-visit:

  • Korean BBQ Bowls: Their signature dish. Imagine a bowl loaded with your choice of meat, rice, veggies, and the magical Cupbop sauce.
  • Customizable Spice Levels: Whether you’re a spice rookie or a chili champion, you can adjust the heat to your liking. I went mid-range and it was a perfect kick!
  • Friendly Staff: These folks are not just serving food; they’re dishing out smiles and great vibes.
  • Affordable Prices: You get a bang for your buck here, with generous portions that won’t break the bank.

Now, let’s chat about what I love to eat at Cupbop. I always opt for the classic Cupbop bowl with veggies. It’s a symphony of savory, sweet, and spicy flavors all perfectly balanced.

One of my sons gets the beef bowl. The beef is always tender and juicy, the veggies fresh, and that sauce — yum, their sauce is like a high-five to my taste buds.

But wait, there’s more! Cupbop isn’t just sitting on their laurels. They’re always mixing things up. This November and December, they’re introducing some holiday specials. Think Korean BBQ with a festive twist — like a turkey and cranberry sauce bop. And for dessert? How about some sweet rice cakes with a sprinkle of cinnamon and nutmeg. It’s like Thanksgiving and Christmas got a Korean BBQ makeover!

And if you’re into giving back, you’ll love this — Cupbop is doing a charity event in December. They’re donating a portion of their sales to a local food bank. Eating delicious food and helping the community? Count me in!

Hi Katerina,
I can attest to the yumminess at Cupbop. I really enjoyed lunch there when we had our meet-up in late March. The closest ones to me are Nampa and Meridian, Idaho. Maybe they'll expand west.
