Streetfood abounds in Korea, and one of our favorite treats was kimbap. Similar to the nori roll and onigiri in Japan, kimbap offers a veritable treasure trove of treats in seafood wrapped rice. Egg, spam as mentioned earlier, pickled daikon (known in Korea as mu), onion greens, crab meat or other seafood delights, and perhaps a bit of seaweed. This video of a market vendor making roll after mouthwatering roll shows what a simple dish this is as well as how skilled one must be to get it right.
