E-Mo does just one thing and does it well. At this closet-sized takeout shop in Koreatown, a husband-and-wife team turns out kimbap to order. The Korean-style seaweed rice rolls come with a choice of fillings, including beef, jalapeno, mushrooms, kimchi, squid, tuna, and spicy tuna. Just $4.50 buys around a dozen pieces, enough for a light lunch. It’s all fresh, tasty, and a good value, says Pupster–and a cut above the prepackaged kimbap that tends to sit around too long at rival shops.
