My giant Kimbap has a name – Kimchi the Kimbap! He measures 12 in. x 4.5 in. 30.5 cm x 11.5 cm.

Kimbap is made of two different words in Korean – Kim– seaweed, and bap – rice. Some people might think kimbap is a type of sushi but they’re actually different. They may look similar but they actually originate from different countries. The way the rice is prepared is also different – kimbap rice is mixed with sesame oil and a touch of white sugar whereas sushi rice is prepared with rice vinegar. Lastly, the fillings in kimbap are usually cooked instead of raw.
