Kimbab Chingu Restaurant

My friends and I came to Kimbab Chingu (김밥친구) restaurant for dinner and it was not very busy, so we will get the seat. Kimbab chingu is a Korean restaurant located in Bongcheon Jeom (봉천점).

The restaurant isn't very large on the inside, but it's clean, comfortable and has a nice homey feel.

The service is good. There is one Ajumma (아줌마) means aunt, serving always put on smile and speaks friendly.
See this small place, they make the best food here!

Pretty much everything on the menu is cheap!

The banchan (Korean side dish) really varied and hit the spot. The side dishes were good as well.
My favorites are the Kimchi and Danmuji (단무지) literally means sweet radish pickle, though the Korean radish kimchi and spinach are very good too.

We ordered Jumokbab, Kimchi Mandu, Cheese Tteokbokki and Tuna kimbab.
While our another food was being prepared we got a Jumokbab (주먹밥) and a small bowl of soup. The soup is plain but very delicious. They also give you a refill if you want and this is included in the meal.
Jumok means fist, and Bap means rice, which is basically rice and dried seaweed (김), rolled into a ball. Jumokbap is a cheaap and quick meal and the portions are on the larger side, and it just costs about 1500 Won.

Cheese Tteokbokki (치즈 떡복기) is a popular Korean snack food made with cheese, soft rice cake, fish cake and sweet red chili sauce. The cheese tteokbokki is wonderful, spicy, and chewy rice cakes are simply addictive. Cheese tteokbokki so spicy and the heat of the tteokbokki sauce is so high. My nose started to run just a little bit and my mouth was on fire!!! The price is 3,500 Won.

The tuna kimbab (참치김밥) was really great, and there's a wide variety of different fillings. A delicious combination of veggies and protein wrapped up in sesame flavoured rice and roasted seaweed.
Tuna Kimbab (참치김밥) is my favourite type of Kimbab. It has a savory taste and the smell from perilla leaves (Ggaennip, 깻잎) and tuna is just well balanced. The price is 2,500 Won.

Kimchi mandu are dumplings in Korean cuisine. Kimchi mandu is a variation of Korean dumplings made with kimchi as the main ingredient, and vegetable filling. Kimchi Mandu was little bit spicy, crunchy, and very tasty. 

Overall, whenever I'm craving some Korean food, I head over here. I love coming to this place, because everything I've had has been nice.
