Food Truck: Ssahm BBQ (Korean)

Food trucks on Flora St. in downtown Dallas
next to the Nasher Sculpture Center

A daeji (pork) taco and kimchee fries!
What a huge surprise to see food trucks lined up next to the Nasher Sculpture Center during lunch today!  We were planning on grabbing lunch at Mia's on Lemmon, but opted to support the food trucks and try out their fare.  We tried a couple of things from Ssahm BBQ, and they were delicious especially the kimchee fries.

Daeji Taco:  pork, sesame soy vinaigrette salad, caramalized kimchee, cilantro & onion, salsa roja, served on 2 corn tortillas.

Kimchee Fries:  fresh handcut potatoes, monterey jack & cheddar cheeses, cilantro & onion, caramelized kimchee, spicy majo.

Ssahm BBQ (and other food trucks) are often in the Arts District in Dallas, so check them out!  They'll let you know where they are if you follow them on Facebook or Twitter.!/pages/SSahm-BBQ/199298540108401?sk=wall

For those unfamiliar with kimchee, here is how Wikipedia defines it:
"Kimchi also spelled gimchi, kimchee, or kim chee, is a traditional fermented Korean dish made of vegetables with varied seasonings.  There are hundreds of varieties of kimchi made with a main vegetable ingredient such as napa cabbage, radish, green onions or cucumber.  It is the most common banchan, or side dish, in Korean cuisine. Kimchi is also a main ingredient for many popular Korean dishes such as kimchi stew (김치찌개; kimchi jjigae), kimchi soup (김칫국; kimchiguk), and kimchi fried rice (김치볶음밥; kimchi bokkeumbap)."

  1. I was eating that for dinner tonight. What struck me about the Nachos was the fact that they had thrown baked beans, pulled pork, Los Angeles Catering
