[ Once I even pulled up JUST as they were leaving!!! ]
Today they were in my ‘hood, with a couple other food trucks
I parked right in back of one and was the very first customer
The chef, James Seok, trained at the NYC Culinary Institute and worked at Morimoto’s
They serve Korean Mediterranean Food (and do private catering as well)
Owner Brian was kind enough to treat me to a sampler plate of their 3 buns: Kalbi, Dweji, and Katsu…
…plus their Tempua Onion and Duck Fat Fries
I began with the Katsu – deep fried pork, cucumbers, and cilantro with a sweet n spicy sauce
My initial plan of attack was to eat all the fried stuff and save the rest, so at first I just had a bite of all the buns – all were mind-blowingly tasty and the bao were steamed to light and fluffy perfection
Neither of the sides are Abe-friendly (they do have vegetarian options) since they’re fried in duck fat, which imparts a rich, savor-y flavor.
Old Bay seasoned onions
Garlic Rosemary shoestring potatoes
Once I polished off those delectable morsels I noticed I was trapped! The poor guy behind me was getting a ticket.
So I kept eating.
I felt really bad enjoying this delicious food while seeing his tormented face in my rearview mirror…
…by the time he and the copper drove away, I had somehow polished off the rest of the buns
AAAAND, while we’re on the subject of me + Abe + films + clicking – we’d REALLY appreciate it if you would take five seconds to “like” our movie “Geeks on Board” for the Arclight Documentary Film Festival!!!
