In researching restaurants and cafes that have appeared in Seoul in the past year, in preparation for my trip in May, I read that Jeju's Kim Man Bok Abalone Kimbap (original post) shop has opened a location in Seoul's COEX mall!

We decided to go for the original kimbap. It has a sweet egg custard omelet in the middle and is topped with sesame seeds and wrapped in seaweed.
We also got the rice ball. It is topped with an abalone, sesame seeds, and sesame oil. This really was a LOT more food than it appeared to be when ordering. It was served warm and was extremely savory. In the middle of the rice ball, the sweet egg custard omelet makes another appearance. So good!

We also got the abalone jook (abalone rice porridge). This, too, was a ton of food...and quite cheap, actually. I'm kind of used to paying like 9,000KRW for juk. It has pieces of cut abalone throughout the bowl and there's also an ample amount of sesame oil and sesame seeds.

Just a warning, the porridge is made to order, so you might have to wait like 10-20 minutes. They told us 20 minutes, but the order was ready when we went to check on it after exploring the area for 10 minutes.

I definitely recommend you check it out. It makes a great snack or a take-and-go food for the beach. There are other menu items I didn't have a chance to try.
