We were in the mood for a cheesesteak for lunch, but neither of the two food trucks in NYC serving cheesesteaks were nearby. One vendor nearby though was the Kimchi Taco Truck, who have one of the more unusual dishes around, a kim-cheesesteak. We’ve tried the beef about a year and a half ago, but never the chicken.
Korean fusion cuisine is very popular these days, with Korean tacos and burritos gaining a toehold in the lunchtime routines of New Yorkers. Kimchi Taco Truck gives it another twist with their kim-cheesesteak.
One of the things Philadelphia is known for (besides cheesesteaks) is soul music, with the O-Jays, Teddy Pendergrass, Gamble & Huff and others. This sandwich is more like Philly Seoul. (Whew, that was a long way to go for one joke.)
