Wanna hire me to eat your kimbap?
What is that, you ask?
It’s a wondrous coming together of rice and assorted filling wrapped nicely in a sheet of dried seaweed. Some of you gringos know it as a “sushi roll”.
The trick with kimbap––some of you will know it as 김밥––is to spread your rice (short grain, please) over the seaweed so that it’s nice and even. Do that with your (clean!) wet fingers.
One fabulous filling for kimbap is tuna. Make it spicy with jalapeno! Add a little mayo or leave it out.
I combine marinated sesame leaves and cucumber with the tuna to make it super sassy!
Roll up your kimbap nice and slow so everything stays inside there. Then all you have to do is slice it up.
Don’t even think about hiring this guy to eat your kimbap. He can’t eat but two or three!
Leave this job for the professionals.
