one of my missions are to introduce you to not only the special but the local favourites here. and one of it is the FIST RICE! it directly translates to fist rice from Korean because 주목밥 Jumok = fist, bab = rice. my friend told me that the usual Jumokbabs are meant for the poor pfft because it’s huger than a fist and has tuna fillings in it usually. costing 1,5000KRW.
but my first Jumokbab experience was much more fancy as we had bulgogi, spam, kimchi bokkeum etc as fillings. they are also smaller than normal Jumokbabs and they cost 2,5000won-3,000won onwards. but I am pretty sure I am paying for the taste and the variety because it’s really damn good.
this shop is right outside Lotte World called KONG’S RICEBALL. it’s a chain restaurant so if you see any just barge into it =3. that day it was already late but the place was still packed with people.
hungry girl. to eat inside Lotte World you gotta prepare 8,000won for an ordinary Korean Meal that would cost you 4,000won. I’d rather come out have these deliciously expensive riceballs.
soup and water are self service.
the oh so good and incredulously cute jumokbabs! this is a set of 5, costing at 12,000won (including 3 2,500won ones are 2 3,000won ones)
you scoop it out with a spoon and it’s so good. “AH MASHITDA!!” is what the little kid next to me said loudly and heck it was so cute xD.
PS: there’s a branch right outside Ewha Univ as well.
here’s the add – 서울 서대문구 대현동 60-8 1층 copy and paste it on maps.naver.com and you will find it =).
