It was awfully sweet of Allie this afternoon. When I lest expected it and am so lazy cooking today, Allie brought over some Kimbab she had made and shared with us. Allie is Korean and I have learnt a lot about Korean food and culture from her.
Kimbab is Korean sushi. Koreans will always say that kimbab is kimbab — it is NOT Korean SUSHI! 🙂 Hey, it looks like sushi to me!
Allie’s kimbab has eggs, cucumber, carrot, pickled radish and one other meat that I can’t really figure out what it is. The main difference I tasted was the absence of vinegar which is an important ingredient in sushi. Instead, I think Allie used sesame seed oil.
The other main difference is that Allie sliced the kimbab a lot more thinner than normal sushi — it’s almost disc-like.
Nanzaro loves sushi and so does Arkensen. But Aksensen being such a fussy eater, he just don’t like kimbab. I think Arkensen misses the taste of vinegar. Anyway, he had 18 pcs of sushi for lunch this afternoon anyway.
Here is Nanzaro enjoying his kimbab. He ate almost half of the plate … except that he picked out the carrot and cucumber. He hates carrots and cucumber. 🙂
