Triangle Kimbap, or SamgaKimbap, is an easy first staple in a foreigner’s diet. Without our beloved pizza by the slice joints, we are forced to look elsewhere for a shot of carbs and protein. Enter Samga Kimbap.
Found at every mini-mart across the country, triangle kimbab is a rice triangle stuffed with cooked meat, tuna, kimchi, and a host of other tempting treats for around 700won, or roughly 70cents US. I’ve been a longtime connoisseur of the Tuna and Mayonnaise version.
Really, unless you don’t have access to a mini-mart, or are easily coned by smiling ajumas at supermarket kiosks, there is no reason to try and make these at home.
But being the latter I gleefully purchased my own Samga Kimbap kit, and here is how it turned out.
For the time and effort involved (and price of ingredients) I’ll be sticking with the bounty at my local family mart.
