KIMBAP!

Kimbap

Seaboard station has grown a great deal in the past year.  Along side the addition of the salon, a Donato’s pizza, and Bad Daddy’s burger joint is a Korean-inspired restaurant called Kimbap.  They focus on fresh, local ingredients and creating dishes that are interesting and delicious.

Since they opened in March of 2013, I’ve had a few opportunities to enjoy several of the dishes on the menu and I’ve enjoyed each of them.  I don’t have pictures of everything I’ve eaten, so I’ll do my best to paint the pictures where I can.

They have daily specials, including Korean tacos (on Tuesdays) and a dinner for 2 special on Thursdays that includes 2 entries and a bottle of wine for $49.  THAT is a pretty good deal.

The ambiance is cool, but not stuck-up feeling.  It has a nice, artsy relaxed feel.  I would have been comfortable eating there, however we had bigger fish to fry…so we took our food to go.

And they are, of course, decorated for Halloween.  As we walked in and began reading the menu, one of the chefs stepped up to offer some advice.  He first asked if we were adventurous eaters.  I, of course, said yes but my dinner companion said that he is not quite so brave.  For me, the chef offered the squid as a suggestion ($14.50).  I immediately said yes.

Look how beautiful!   This dish included fresh stir fried squid with diakon, carrots, parsnips and green onions.  The chef asked how spicy I like my food and I said “about a 6” which I will NOT be saying next time unless I’m eating at home where I can comfortably blow my nose when needed.  It was SPICY, but delicious.  The squid was tender not chewy and absorbed the delicious spicy sauce it was cooked with.

For my dinner buddy, the chef recommended the bulgogi lettuce wraps.  You have your choice of protein, mix of veggies and kimchi and rice on the side.  It’s served with lettuce so you can just wrap up your own little lettuce cups.  They offer beef and pork belly, he went with the beef.  It smelled amazing and he really enjoyed it!

On other occasions, I’ve had their veggie dumplings (both gluten free and regular) and thought they were also very good.  They have such an eclectic assortment of food items and I’m always excited to see what’s new on the rotating menu.  They also offer a great beer selection.  I’m hoping to go on a Tuesday next time so I can experience these delicious Korean tacos.
