[Seoul - SNU] Kim Seonsaeng - Premium kimbap and mandu 바르다 김선생

This is one of my favorite premium kimbap places - Kim Seonsaeng, or how my Norwegian friend and I refer to it, KIM TEACHER.

Its full name is 바르다 김선생. It's a national chain, so you should be able to find it other places.

This was one of the first kimbap stores to introduce cream cheese kimbap on the scene.

The cream cheese kimbap has carrots, cucumbers, pickled radish, and the stars of the roll are cream cheese and walnut. It is 4500 KRW.


The other great kimbap is the spicy jeyuk (spicy pork) kimbap. 매운 제육 김밥 (4500 KRW).
It is filled with spicy pork, carrots, perilla/kkaenip/sesame leaves, and pickled radish.

The cream cheese roll is more of a creamy roll, so the spicy pork kimbap balances out the flavors well.

If you want to try other food, Kim Seonsaeng also sells rice bowls, noodles, and mandu.

The best part is that they have hot tea available for free.

It's also a great place to get takeout and it's very portable.


Menu translations:
Left side - Kimbap

Twigim kimbap - fried shrimp and squid
Cream cheese kimbap
Maeun jeyukssam kimbap - spicy pork kimbap

I can also recommend the following menu items (not pictured, though):

I definitely recommend the mandu!!

[Skincare Review] Head-to-Head Test: Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair vs. La Mer The Concentrate

 As promised, here is my blog comparing the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair vs. the La Mer The Concentrate. FTC disclaimer: I was sent both of these items for free in exchange for my full and honest review. I tried to be as scientific as humanly possible. I had a blinded reviewer (my mom) who was actually unaware I was even doing a skincare test, so her opinion is completely blinded and she tried really hard to give a full and honest review of differences she noticed. I did this for 2 weeks. In the 14 days before the test, I was testing out the Estee Lauder ANP product in exchange for my review. I had enough product left (and actually received a second sample to test). My nighttime skincare routine was the same as usual. 1) DHC Cleansing Oil - Buy from YesStyle | Buy from Amazon 2) Micellar Water (for eye makeup) 3) Rosette Cleansing Paste Sea Clay Smooth - Buy From YesStyle  | Buy from Amazon I used my PMD Clean (from CAUSEBOX) to wash my face.
