Kimgane is a Korean restaurant chain.  Founded in 1994, now with countless outlets across the nation, seemingly one in every neighborhood, certainly in any neighborhood with lots of kids/students.  Specializes in gimbab, as well as other quick, cheap items.  The name simply means “At Kim’s.”

(I would bet anything that I’ve written a post about this chain somewhere on the pages of GMTD, but I can’t seem to find any such record.)

I can’t recall when this became a thing, but any restaurant in Korea that serves gimbab now features this assembly station, usually at the front of the store and visible through the front window.

Their basic gimbab is strictly mediocre, neither good nor bad.  But passable as a quick, cheap snack on the run.
