Place to grab kimbap (Korean "sushi") in downtown SF?
Wow, a search on "kimbap" actually yielded NO results on this board! I'm shocked...
Anyways, I'm looking for a place to hit up to soothe this kimbap craving I have. I know of a few sit-down Korean restaurants that serve the stuff in a pinch, but ideally, I'd like to find a supermarket/convenience store type of place where I can grab and go for cheap. :) Any suggestions?
this may be too late but... At least this suggestion is in SF (not in downtown).
The closest to downtown where I have found just mom & pop grocery stores where they sell made items is on Filmore St. a couple of grocery stores (can't recall any names) but they are near the Filmore music hall.
The 2nd closest idea for finding items from a Korean Grocery (more in keeping w/ the stores you see in S. Calif.) is all on Geary in the Richmond district. I believe there is a store right next door to the (infamous) Korean restaurant called "My Tofu House" which is favorite of my hubby's.
Hope this helps... because I think I connected with what you were looking for.
People who know that area might not be reading a topic with "downtown SF" in the title. You might start a new topic titled something like "Korean in North Bay?" There are a few places in Cotati and Santa Rosa.
Some relevant topics:
This thread reminded me of a link to an article posted on the Western Canada board:
Having read some recent posts by Bay area hounds on their NW experiences this summer, I'm adding this to my must try list for next summer.
I don't suppose any of the local kimbap offerings approach this level?

Thanks, Shindokdo looks like it might have possibilities. Only one other thread on CH however and the comments are 3-4 years old. There was one person on the kelp site that was Korean and gave it thumbs up. Will have to take a look at Ban Su next trip to the southland.
