We first met Simon Majumdar back in 2011 at the Long Beach Crawfish Festival when Seoul Sausage was just an iddy bitty catering/events company w/ no food truck or store. He tried our sausages that day & has been an avid supporter & friend ever since.
A few weeks ago we had the chance to show him around our favorite Koreatown spots for his new book, Fed, White, & Blue and Seoul Sausage had the privilege to provide material for his new adventure. Needless to say, we had a blast getting “blattered” together. Soon after, we had a chance to cook together at Seoul Sausage kitchen.
What resulted was a Pork Vindaloo Sausage & Chicken Tandoori Fried Balls. Who knows? You might see something like this on our menu someday!
That same day of Simon’s cooking adventures, we had another guest that was in town none other than last season’s Top Chef winner, Kristen Kish! (special thanks to Julie at KoreAm)
Kristen is one bad ass girl! Due to her hectic schedule we only had 3 hours to tour the town. We headed to the place we knew best, Koreatown! We taught her how to order in Korean, introduced her to Soju, and had the most epic taxi car ride ever.
She felt like a friend we’ve known for years. For all of you in Boston, go try her food at Menton!
Here’s our interview that we did with Kristen for KoreAm
