In 2016, Bibimbap House went viral after Humankind shared a video about the restaurant closing on Mondays to feed the homeless under a bridge in Salem. The video has been viewed around 6 million times.

The family behind Bibimbap is particularly religious, often writing bible quotations on takeout containers and taking discounts from dishes in the name of Jesus. The dishes themselves aren’t exactly expensive: The restaurant’s bibimbap clocks in under $10, as do many dishes on the restaurant’s menu.

Bibimbap House goes beyond the traditional stone bowl: The restaurant also serves Korean classics like complimentary banchan, glass noodle dish jap chae, and kimchi jigae stew, as well as Japanese dishes like teriyaki and sushi.

This article was corrected to show that the restaurant opened on Monday, March 19, not Friday.
