jalapeno kimbap bento

23 09 2010

last night’s meet-up at seoul garden was super fun!  we ordered the mixed BBQ platter and a bunch of jigaes, and then hit koryodong cafe for lattes and shakes.

there weren’t a ton of leftovers from dinner (in fact, i gobbled up my entire portion, leaving nothing for a doggie bag).  but fear not, bento pals — this intrepid blogger took the opportunity to stop at H-mart for some korean groceries, as well as at e-mo for some jalapeno kimbap to go!

i didn’t get home until almost midnight and was too tired to bento, so i threw a quick one together before work this morning, adding just a few broccolini florets, a juicy tomato, and two steamed sweet potato leaves (i lightly incised some “veins” with a toothpick) for some extra color and fall-inspired decoration.

tomorrow i have a lunch date, so i’ll see you all next week — happy bento-ing and have a great weekend!

I see you go to the same Korea town I do! But I’ve never heard of e-mo before, probably because it’s so tiny. I can’t wait to check it out, thank you! Your bento looks great, I love kimbap.

Your beautiful bento reminds me that it’s time to pull out the leaf shape cutters!
“Now where’s my MRB?”
Very inspiring…so glad to see your bentos again.

stunning speed bento! the sweet potatoes leaves are a autumnal delight, and how nice to remember one’s leaf-shaped cutters after the months of spring and summer flowers :) sounds like you had a really great foodie outing, excellent!

I’ve never heard of jalapeno kimbap before, but it looks deeelish!! Not to mention speedy – I like speedy bentos, proving all the disbelievers that bentos take way too much time

Love the round box – I need to get better at filling my round tiffin…

thanks mils! apparently jalapeno kimbap has always been on the menu at e-mo, i just never noticed it before (i usually stick with the plain veggies). and yes, i am always down to show bento doubters that the process can be no muss, no fuss!
