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. You can add anything inside your Gimbap and the most common ingredients are eggs, crabmeat, ham and seasoned vegetables. Myulchu Gimbap is now one of the hottest trending food in Korea. It is actually sweet and spicy fried anchovies wrapped in a Gimbap. You can make this delicious and convenient to eat Gimbap at home within 30 mins!
