Today was the last day of the Korean Mobile Kitchen. The food truck has been traveling around New York City the past five weeks, handing out delicious FREE foods from local Korean restaurants and I have be visiting them every week! Earlier today, the truck was parked at Union Square West and 15th St. The item on the menu featured Korean BBQ from Kang Suh Restaurant.
Bulgogi is probably the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Korean BBQ. Bulgogi features thin slices of marinated meat that is grilled, or sometimes pan-fried, with sliced onions and garlic. The meat becomes super tender, juicy, and flavorful. It’s more commonly made with beef, but pork bulgogi can be just as delicious. Bulgogi can be served over rice or served in a wrap. A slice of lettuce or some kind of leafy vegetable is used to wrap the cooked meat along with rice, ban chan and hot pepper paste, perhaps.
Spicy Pork Bulgogi
Sliced pork marinated in a mixture of red pepper paste (Gochujang), chilli powder, corn syrup, soy sauce, sesame oil, sugar, garlic, ginger, onion, sake (cooking wine), served with a piece of lettuce and a tiny ball of rice.
So glad I had the chance to stop by on the last day of free food. In addition to the free lunches, they’ve also been awarding gift certificates to some lucky Twitter followers and free food participants. The other week, I received a $20 gift certificate for Bann Restaurant. Can’t wait to use it and I look forward to sharing my dining adventures afterwards.
