Kimchi Fries changed my life.
They are so bad, yet so good.
One bite and I was in love.
My first thought after that first bite was, "I am SO going to miss kimchi fries when we leave Korea" - even though we still had 2 years left. I'm so glad I found them early on.
There is always a list of things we will miss when we leave a place, most of the time it has to do with food.
Here is a short list off the top of my head:
Bagels & cannoli's from our time in New York.
Joe's Pizza from Killeen.
The drive through Mexican place in Coppers Cove that has cactus on the menu.
The dive restaurant in Colorado Springs just a short drive from our house that had the best calzones EVER!
Korea has way too many amazing things to list. Beef and leaf. I miss beef and leaf.
Sugar Queen Cupcake in Denton, Texas.
Banana pancakes in Thailand -- not what you are thinking. The best street food ever.
Sizzling squid from the Philippines.
Mangosteens from Cambodia.....
I could go on and on but I will stop there.
Back to kimchi fries --- here's how I made them:
Homemade French Fries. I try to healthy them up a bit by frying in avocado oil (high cooking temp - you can take avocado oil up to 510 degrees!)
Pork Carnitas (I always make Kimchi Fries the day after we have carnitas!)
red onions - chopped
white onions chopped
Toss in the oven at 400 till cheese is melted.
Top with a little more cilantro
Mix Rooster sauce and sour cream together and drizzle on top!
