Gimbap is a Korean dish made from cooked rice and other ingredients that are rolled in gim (dried sheets of nori seaweed) and served in bite-sized slices. The dish is often part of a packed meal, or dosirak, to be eaten at picnics and outdoor events, and can serve as a light lunch along with danmuji (yellow pickled radish) and kimchi.

Gimbap is easy to eat and is good to eat outside because the bowl does not get dirty even after eating all the Gimbap. It is a popular take-out food in South Korea and abroad, and is known as a convenient food because of its portability. It is usually well wrapped (traditionally with aluminium foil, but now sometimes in paper) and does not have any liquid ingredients.
