Have you heard? There’s a Korean food truck driving around NYC serving FREE lunch, weekdays from 11:30am to 2:00pm, through May 20th!
The truck returned to Park Ave and 27th St last Thursday May 12. This time they were serving kimchi fried rice from Kun Jip Restaurant which is located in KoreaTown on 32rd St.
Ah, kimchi fried rice, another simple yet wonderful Korean comfort food. It brings me back memories from my college days. My Korean roommate used to put together the most satisfying kimchi fried rice with homemade kimchi, leftover short grain white rice, and any left over vegetables or meat he could find in the fridge. Occasionally, we’d find diced SPAM tossed inside the rice as well. And right before serving, he’d fry an egg, either sunny-side up or scrambled, and place it over the rice just like a blanket. It was awesome.
The kimchi fried rice was available with or without pork and came with a side of seaweed salad.
