Kim Seon Saeng: If you see this Kimbap Chain make sure to head inside and check it out. Not that my kimbap experiences have exactly been vast, but having lived in Vancouver I experienced my fair share of sushi and kimbap and know what I like (and this, my friends, I liked!).
My Hangul-reading skills are slowly improving, but the first time I went in I was told that the roll I thought was Donkatsu (Pork Cutlet) was actually deep-fried jelly fish so I erred on the safe side and went with Bulgogi.
It was delicious, but not quite the life-changing experience that a fellow Hwamyeong-dong Foreigner had expressed I was about to experience.
I went back the next day to try the cream cheese kimbap (carrots and other veggies, pickled radish, a candied walnut and Korea’s version of cream cheese which I can only equate to Laughing Cow Cheese) and the next day I returned…and for 2 days after that. This kimbap involves a lot more veggies and as such a lot less rice. It’s fresh and crisp and one roll makes a perfect treat as dinner after the gym (after all it is just across the street!).
It comes wrapped up in a cute little box with wooden chopsticks and a wet-nap – key if you’re on the go!
If you’re in Seoul and other major cities I do believe there are a few situated throughout Korea I’ve just not been able to find too much information about them. If that changes I’ll be sure to update!
