Hey now, don't knock Spam and kimchi until you've tried it.

/Hawaiian-Korean fusion FTW!

Hey, that sounds good.

I was introduced to kimchi at the Dong Yang Inn in Wahiawa, HI.  They never served spam with it, though.

That actually sounds really good.  Maybe with some bulgogi on top as well.

And a side of macaroni salad.   Which was perhaps the most incongruent thing about the Dong Yang Inn:  You got good old-fashioned American picnic-style macaroni salad with your kal-bi and kimchi.

I'm glad momofuku has helped fuel a bit of a ramen revival but a lot of the restaurants that are riding this wave really suck.

I like places that are willing to take some risks, and Brooklyn seems like a great place to do it.  If it sucks it will disappear quickly enough, but if it's good, Brooklyn is the perfect community to support something like that.

Yeah you're right.  I probably should be more supportive of anyone crazy enough to get into the restaurant biz.  I certainly appreciate their efforts.

Running start:
-Pho with knaidlach
-Rice paper blintzes
-Cel-Ray bubble tea
-Corned beef & kimchi on rye (use kimchi to replace slaw or sauerkraut in any deli sandwich, really)
-Bagels with lox and fish paste/sauce

I went to a Korean restaurant that served a big stew with the following ingredients:
-Spam
-kimchi
-sliced up hot dogs
-macaroni & cheese
-ramen
-bits of seafood (shrimp, clams, octopus?)
-overcooked spaghetti?

I'm not sure if it they were trying to be "ironic" or "fusion", or if Koreans were just really desperately poor in the WWII / Korean War years.

Kosher-Vietnamese fusion?  I'd give that a try.

Running start:
1. Pho with knaidlach
2. Rice paper blintzes
3. Cel-Ray bubble tea
4. Corned beef & kimchi on rye (use kimchi to replace slaw or sauerkraut in any deli sandwich, really)
5. Bagels with lox and fish paste/sauce


Hope you don't mind me adding numbers to your list.
I feel that 1 is probably too much starch, and might be too bland besides.  2 might not work because I think rice paper is even more delicate than phyllo dough, and even if it did, it doesn't add much. 3 and 4 are genius.  5 could be great, could be terrible, entirely depends on the type of sauce used.  The sauce might just completely overwhelm the taste of the lox, and that would be a shame.

My suggestion: mapo tofu, but with paneer instead of tofu.  I'd be curious how that turns out.  Also having trouble deciding whether to leave in the meat or to make it more Indian (i.e. vegetarian).

An Indian place near me does a paneer curry that's basically chunks of paneer in a spicey broth, I could see that being similar to what you're describing, just with more Chinese spices instead of Indian.

 For #2 - instead of rice-paper blintzes, how about blintzes filled with spring roll filling?

Went to Korean BBQ place the other night where you can get four all-you-can-eat courses of meat (chadol bakgi, samgyeopsal, jangsamgyeopsal, and miso samgyeopsal - then refills of whichever you want), as well as endless banchan. The most amazing meal I've had in a while.

More Chinese noodles than Ramen, but I watched an episode of Bizarre Foods recently and the host absolutely raved about Xi'an Famous Foods.  They have an outpost in Brooklyn it looks like, and more in Queens.

Sadly, I don't know, I don't eat in NYC all that often, although I've heard good things about this place.

The food's from my hometown, so theoretically, it's heavy on the steamed dumplings and noodles.

Have you been to those Assi stores?  We stopped in on one in New Jersey and it was awesome sauce.  We're going to go to the one in Queens if you want to check it out.  Golden Mall definitely looks like it would be a great addition to that trip.  We should make a plan.  I love eating almost as much as I love talking about myself.

Never been to Assi, but I have been to an H-Mart (there's one in Hartsdale in Westchester) that is a Korean supermarket with a really great food court. Big bowl of bibimbap for $8 bucks - you can't lose.

Kimchi pizza.


Pepperoni, Kimchi, and Feta cheese pizza with a Naga Bhut (Ghost Pepper) salsa sauce sounded really good one night when I was doing some serious drinking.

It tasted FANTASTIC.  (I think, was pretty drunk by that point)

11 hours, 34 minutes later I was cursing myself for not installing a revolver with one round loaded in the bathroom.

As a fat former latch-key kid who has lived alone most of the time since he was 1991, I do not find this all that exciting.

You don't need a restaurant to make Pot Full O' Mess.®

You need noodles. And, some random meat/veggies/leftovers to throw in it.

It also helps if you hoard condiment packs from various places.

And, you probably ought to get high first.

So it's multiculturalism and diversity at a national level, but when a restaurant does it they're committing a heinous travesty of food anti-purism? It's a melting pot, why not make that literal?
