I was watching Iron Chef UK (It pales in comparison to all other versions by the way) and I was interested in this dish prepared by the Iron Chef, so any where in LA I should seek out to try it? I'm working up here for the next week and a half.

heres how wikipedia describes it

Gimbap or kimbap is a popular Korean fast food[1] made from steamed white rice (bap) and various other ingredients, rolled in gim (sheets of dried seaweed) and served warm in bite-size slices. Gimbap is often eaten during picnics or outdoor events, or as a light lunch, served with danmuji or kimchi. It is similar, but not identical, to makizushi, one of the many variants of the Japanese rice-based dish sushi.

Thanks

    Kimbap is all over Koreatown. Nearly any Korean grocery store and many restaurants will have it. I mostly eat grocery store kimbap; of those, I like the bulgogi kimbap at the California Market on Beverly, west of Normandie and the fish cake kimbap at the HK Market at First and Western, but most places seem to do a decent version and it's generally quite cheap.
