In Which Lunch was a Tray of Korean Nibbles…

Kimbap and nori noodle soup for lunch

Kimbap and nori noodle soup for lunch

Ever have days when you’re feeling peckish and antsy, days when you’re hungry but are just too tired to go out more than a few steps to grab a bite?  These days have happened to me often enough, but thank goodness for the Korean grocery/convenience stores that seem to pop up just about everywhere in my side of the BGC.

You can get trays of kimbap – the maki-like seaweed and rice roll – for P 100.00 and these are great for nibbling over lunch.  Each roll is stuffed to the gills with lightly seasoned rice, sesame seeds, fresh carrot and cucumber, takuan (sweet-pickled daikon radish), rolled egg omelet, and a snippet of ham.  Every bite features an interplay of flavours, colours, and textures that keeps the dish interesting right down to the last morsel.

And to round out your meal: grab a small tub of the instant noodle soup – there is a bunch of variants available, so may as well go mad and take your pick.
