김밥나라

While I was studying at Hanyang University, I went to have lunch on my own twice and tried out the Korean food at the following food stall at the university.

I love kimbap / 김밥 the first time I tried it at 김밥타운 that I decided to order it along with my bibimbap / 비빔밥. The dishes cost 1,200 won and 3,000 won respectively. I believe that is is the cheapest bibimbap I have eaten at Seoul. It could possibly be because the food stall is located at the university. Thus, it makes it more affordable for students to dine there. You can help youself to an unlimited amount of soup and hot tea as well. When I was dining on my own, I got to meet a Korean student who could speak English and we ended up conversing for a bit before she left for class. The server also talked to me for a bit when I was dining alone. It was really a good experience engaging a conversation with the locals at the university. I went to this place once again with my roomie Yuzu on my second visit. She had her usual ramyeon / 라면 as she stated that it tastes nicer when someone cooks for you than when you do it on your own. As for me, I ordered Jjolmyeon쫄면, which costs 3,000 won. Whenever I dine with roomie Yuzu, I always try a new dish and that is the fun of it! Jjolmyeon is a type of spicy and cold noodle dish that comprises noodles made of wheat flour and starch and vegetables topped with gongchujang sauce. The noodles were a little too chewy for my liking and it was hard for me to swallow as I am not used to such texture. However, I love how the food tastes!!

If you are a student studying at Hanyang University, it is very convenient getting the food from here and as usual, none of the Korean dishes at any restaurants in Seoul have disappointed me.

#342 김밥타운 @ Wangsimni, Seoul

김밥타운

On the second day at Hanyang University, my roomie and myself hung out and went to Wangsimni to eat together. My roomie is a Korean fanatic and knows Korea pretty well so she brought me to many parts of Wangsimni wanting to introduce a good Korean restaurant to me. However, after much search, we ended up at the restaurant that we were at on the first few hunts.

Since my roomie could converse very well in Korean, she explained to me what each dish is so that I can choose from the menu. I ordered a typical Korean dish, which is none other than the Kimchi Fried Rice / 김치볶음밥. My dish costs only 4,000 won. On the other hand, roomie got something that I have never tried before – the amazing Kimbap김밥! I have never tried kimbap at all so when roomie let me try a slice of it, I was salivating all over. I could not believe that I have been missing out on this although I have been in Seoul for weeks! It was like a Korean version of sushi, which I will elaborate more on my next entry.
