Why Gimbap Cheongook is special ?

Kimbap Cheonguk actually means seaweed rice(roll) heaven. Kim is seaweed and bap is rice. Cheon is sky, and guk is country or nation, so cheonguk is actually 天國 in Chinese. It is franchise restaurants all over Korea and you could recognize the bright orange signboard easily. It's almost like McDonalds where you can find at least one around the block. Although kimbap literally represents a roll of rice with various filling wrapped in seaweed but in Kimbap Cheonguk there are a lot other dishes that we could try other than Kimbap.


Must try dish:


Chamchi Gimbap:2500 won ($2.2)


Goguma Cheese Donkkaseu: 5500 won ($5)


Yachae Kimbap: 2000 won ($1.8)


Nalchial Kimbap: 2000 won ($1.8)


Nude Kimbap 2500 won ($2.2)
