Hightail it to Mira's for Kimbab (Korean Sushi)
When I was in high school, my group of friends used to share our lunches with each other. Not every day, just when we had something special. It was a real treat when my friend brought in extra rolls of kimbab to share with us. Back then, I didn't know it as kimbab, we just called it korean sushi. But in fact, it is in a class all of its own, and I was delighted when, after all these years, I discovered what it was called and where I could get it.
If you like the idea of sushi but don't fancy raw fish, you will love kimbab. It is filled with many ingredients including picked carrots, egg, your choice of meat (such as pork, prawn, chicken), picked daikon, sesame oil and tofu. Kimbab, when made expertly, has the perfect ratio of filling to rice (which means not too much rice).
One place to try kimbab is Mira's Korean Street Food, where it is made fresh to order.
That does look proper! As a Korean-born Aussie, I always love kimbab when on a picnic. Home-made would be the best but it's quite a lot of work prepping the ingredients, so we often buy some on the way to our picnic. You can get pre-made ones at korean grocery shops but Mira's look a lot more authentic! Would love to try this shop, better plan a picnic!!
