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.
