Kimchi is probably the most common and iconic dish of Korea and it is like a staple in Korean cuisine that you must have it when you are eating Korean food. It is a fermented salted vegetables usually made using napa cabbage. Kimchi is so versatile that you can eat it on its own or adding in to any dish. I love adding kimchi to my fried rice as it adds extra flavour to the rice! You can also try adding kimchi to your favourite noodles or meat!
Onigiri is a triangle shaped sushi wrapped in Japanese seaweed. Onigiri is my favourite food to pack for work lunch, road trips and picnic. You can actually make onigiri a day in advance and just pack them in your bento lunch.
Gimbap is a korean style sushi roll where gim means seaweed and bap means rice. It is very different from the Japanese sushi because Gimbap uses only sesame oil and salt to season its rice while Japanese sushi uses sugar, salt and vingar.
