So there’s been a lot of talk lately on kimchi, the various ways to pair it with other foods, and the wonderful health benefits that it offers. Last month, we talked about the Kimchi donuts at Dunkin’ Donuts in Korea, and that got me curious to see what other sorts of creative concoctions people are coming up with these days.
From Amanda Cohen (owner of Dirt Candy) comes her version of Kimchi donuts with watermelon radish, cilantro, and wild arugula. I haven’t actually tried these since they were out when I went last time, but it definitely sounds interesting.
Of course, there’s Kimchi tacos from the famed Kogi taco truck, which I think is on its way to New York. Woohoo!
Christina Tosi is whipping up some kimchi butter at Momofuku Milk Bar. It’s actually quite delicious and goes great with a warm toast in the morning.
We also have a great recipe for Kimchi Quesadillas! Gotta love the Latin/Korean fusion theme going on here. Latin and Korean actually make an interesting duo since they both are heavy on flavors and spices. If you’re interested, here’s a recipe for Bastardized Kimchi Burgers.
And finally, I’d like to bring your attention to this little bottle down below. Yup, it’s official. In Korea, you can buy Leuconostoc kimchi candy that will help you stay away from swine flu! It’s got 9 different vitamins is available in apple flavor. I’d be curious to try it and I wonder whether it’s super popular in Korea.
