Foodie Friday: Kimchi Fries
I’m still a bit of a n00b when it comes to world cuisine but I was pretty sure that banh mi was a Vietnamese dish, so I was confused when my friend insisted we go to Bahn Mi Boys for kimchi fries one night while I was in Toronto. “But kimchi is Korean…” I thought. In the end I just chalked it up to them both being Asian cultures. I both praise and curse my friend now for that invitation. Fries, pulled pork, green onion, mayo and kimchi may seem like an off-beat combination but the flavours worked so well together. The sweet tang of the pork was offset by the spicy sour of the kimchi, but kept in check by the rich mayo. I raved…and then I went back two days later. Now I’m home with some kimchi in my fridge and determined to try to make this at home. Would you try it?
- Where: Banh Mi Boys, Toronto, Canada
- Cost: $5.99
- Verdict: I had them twice in 3 days and even now I’m still thinking about them.
