In many ways, gimbap, the ubiquitous rice rolled in dried laver, is similar to bibimbap. They both consist of rice with seasonings, and all their ingredients get mixed in your mouth for a delectable combination of flavors. Simply piling together expensive ingredients doesn't mean that you'll get good results—balance is what's important. Yeonhui Gimbab has got this balance down to a T. Yeohui Gimbab is a 30 year-old restaurant that has has carved out a niche in simple, understated gimbap. They don't trumpet their use of special ingredients or techniques. Instead, you'll see them rolling up fresh ingredients, slicing and wrapping with quiet efficiency. A long line of customers always crowds the entryway of this small eatery. There aren’t any tables inside the store, only take out is available. Rolls start from 1,500 KRW. The most popular gimbap flavor is spicy squid mini gimbap. But jangjorim (beef boiled down in soy sauce) gimbap and anchovy gimbap also have a lots of fans. (We like to bring along friends so we can share and try them all.
