I often get asked where I get inspiration for my cooking. One of the best sources of inspiration is from traveling! Trying new cuisines, meeting the brilliant chefs behind the dishes, and exploring new flavor profiles and combinations are some of my favorite things to do!

I have been wanting to create this recipe ever since trying the Kimchi Fries at the Korean BBQ inspired food truck turned store front, Chi’lantro during my last trip to Austin, Texas! I couldn’t get over the complex and all-around amazing flavors going on and had to try making a version of my own.

I left out the meat to make these a fabulous meatless/vegetarian side, though they did serve them up with some pretty amazing chicken and pork!
