    Azure has it on their steam table. It is not exactly the best gourmet kimbop in the world, but I get it every now and again.

    830 3rd Ave, New York, NY 10022

      Most midtown delis that have the pay-per-pound food bars offer kimbop. If you are in the 32nd Street & 5th Ave vicinity you can easily find it at the H-Mart/Han Ah Reum supermarket...it's much cheaper that way too.

        Han Ah Reum is good, unfortunately I'm in the mid 50's, near 7th ave (I should have been more accurate).

        There is a place in Koreatown that serves only kimbop, a takeout storefront called Emo I think, on 32nd st between 5th and 6th.

          there is a great place in chelsea (8th avenue and 27th or 26th) which specializes in kimbop, named KOFOO. great place, good lunch crowd, very fresh and good variety. they might have also started offering some other stuff, but you could get one or two orders and be very satisfied for lunch.

          most of those korean per-pound places have it also, but its usually stale, bad ratios of rice to filling, and just not very good.
