Heaven, I’m in Heaven . . . when we’re off together dancing kimbap to kimbap!

Kudos to those who know the original song and the original singer. Seriously, if this wonderful Kimbap Cheonguk (Heaven) chain restaurant ever disappeared from South Korea, I’d cry. If it ever disappeared out of my neighbourhood, I’d go on a rampage to the headquarters! Not that it will happen, since there are two of these in my neighbourhood — a mere minute apart from one another — so as long as one remains . . .

Because my work schedule turned wonky and doesn’t match my parents’ schedule, I haven’t been eating my mum’s home cooked meals. Because I’m lazy and do not like cooking, I’ve been buying my dinner from this place as takeout. I mean, come on. The cheapest item on the list is the 1,500 won kimbap (with the current exchange rate, it’s a little over a dollar). The “fancier” kimbaps cost 2,500 won ($2.15), and then there are other dishes like bibimbap, fried rice, ddeokbokki, and etcetera, which are usually under 5,000 won ($4.50). So, yes, their stuff is affordable. Plus, they also deliver the food to you. Not bad, really!

Right now, my favourite thing from them is kimchi kimbap. MMM. I just had some for dinner. Now I want more!

@Nicey—YAY for Google! ^_^

@Inu—She could, but she’s . . . kinda old?  And I don’t want to burden her too much with extra cooking.  Plus, she goes off to my grandmother’s place, four hours away, a lot, so then it’s just me and my dad with microwaveable TV dinners. ~_~ At least getting kimbap and other Korean food is healthier than constantly eating that!

@David—BWAHAHA! 

@Mai—I eat fresh kimchi with hot dogs OR spam with rice.  SOOOO GOOD.

Goodie! When I get some I’ll let you know how I thought about the taste!

You know what, I’m eating a chicken hot dog right now with sauerkraut, and I was thinking kimchi probably would taste really good on it! But I ran out of kimchi, aww so sad! Anyone tried it on a hot dog?

This makes me think of my dreams of opening up a Kimchi cart in NYC.
“Kimchi Mong”
You heard it here FIRST!

:O

I’m surprised they don’t have this in the states. I mean Korean food is so popular.


You guys are making me hungry! So Tara this place cooks home cooked-like food? Sounds delicious! I’m glad you don’t go starving raspberry

Awww Inu, that is a nice thought!

Mia I guess you’ll be eating all that up tomorrow night huh?


KimBap is like 5 dollars a small roll in KTOWN manhattan and like 3 bucks in flushing. Thats for the plain one too.
LOL


Can’t your mom make some food for you and you heat it up later?


I would eat out there everyday if I could. haha I have to eat take out too and it sucks.

Cheek to Cheek (Top Hat) Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire ;P The power of Google!


Kimbap is the best! I’m not even Korean but I love it. haha


I could use one of those here.


Kimbap Heaven? haha That’s cute!


I vaguely remember that store. They were really good and cheap.


Kimbap Cheonguk is the best. I use to go there a lot. I never got Kimbap but I would get Cheese Ramen. haha
