A Chilantros copy cat recipe for Pork Kimchi Fries. Pork, kimchi, cheese and spicy sauce over French fries. An easy and flavorful lunch, Korean inspired and Austin made.
Big, beautiful, rainbow letters on the side of a tall office building in Austin, Texas heralds the loyal followers. Fighting the mid-day traffic, getting over 3 lanes in a creative zigzag, I pulled into the driveway, safe and un-hurt. Anticipation rises as I search for a parking spot, Google Austin, home of Google something, I’m not sure what they do there. Their Google map cars are parked there. Techies work there, in fact the long line of them queue up to the mobile throne of Korean Tex-Mex goodness that is an Austin original, Chi’lantros, the only purpose of this dangerous journey. “Pork Kimchi Fries please, and a Topo Chico” were the magical words that would summon the culinary art that is known to Austinites.
Tracking down these mobile trucks via Twitter and their webpage was worth it, the payoff was beyond delicious, words cannot describe. Must eat now!
Moving to Utah meant saying goodbye to Pork Kimchi Fries, orrrrr, I could make them myself, yikes! How hard could it be? Actually quite easy with the help of bottled kimchi and frozen fries, sorry clean eaters. Although you could make the fries and Kimchi from scratch and in a couple of weeks you could enjoy these fries, or you could make the Fusion Craftiness version and have them now!
