Gimbap / Kimbap

Kimbap a popular Korean "fast" and healthy food. It is wrapped in dried seaweed called gim, and with steamed white rice called bap. Inside kimbap are a variety of fresh vegetables, and protein enriched fooods, such as eggs, crab meat, fish cake or seasoned beef.
This kimbap roll contains crab meat, eggs, carrots, spinach, and sweet pickled radish called danmuji.
Kimbap is cheap, and its price ranges from 1,000 won to 1,5000 won depending what is inside.
I am addicted.

be careful of gimbap though. not as "healthy" as you think!

Hi Lori,
Welcome to Korea :) I'm a little jealous of your living in Jeju - up here in Seoul (Bucheon, technically) things such as fresh air and a view aren't as easy to come by. Perhaps that's why I'll be coming down to your neck of the woods for the winter vacation / holiday :)

I wish you well, and have a wonderful time in Korea -
