The Quest for the Perfect Kimbap

My American friends all know how delicious kimbap 김밥 is because I forced them all to try it at some point and got them all addicted to its amazingness. One of the things I was most excited about doing when returning to Korea was eating a whole lot of Kimbap! What is kimbap? It looks like sushi, but it’s not. It’s better!

Initially I had a pretty hard time finding a kimbap place near me. I even mentioned this to a teacher at my school and the next day there were three rolls of kimbap on my desk!

Breakfast for Lunch in Sinchon

Today Nayoung and I decided to have breakfast for lunch in Sinchon.  When another friend and I went to Honey Berries back in February I saw their huge selection of waffles and pancakes so I had always wanted to return there to try it out.

Nayoung and I split the Ice Cream Pancakes.  You get two scoops of ice cream, banana slices, and syrup on the side with two good sized pancakes.  There were about 5 or six ice cream choices to choose from and maybe 4 syrup choices.  We decided on Strawberry and Vanilla ice cream with the strawberry syrup.
