GimBapBig
Gim in Korean means “laver” (dried seaweed) and “Bap” means “steamed rice”.GimBap is Korea’s most famous snack. This resembles the Japanese style of “sushi” sometimes called California Roll but the taste is very different.

First of all, the Korean steamed rice is seasoned with sesame oil and some salt whereas Japanese steamed rice is seasoned with some rice vinegar, mirin (mild sweet sauce), sugar and salt.

Secondly, Korean GimBap fillings include seasoned vegetables, fried eggs whereas the Japanese fillings are mainly fish.

Lastly, Korean GimBap is not dipped in soy sauce with wasabi whereas the Japanese roll commonly is.
