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!

  1. its so funny I searched this on pinterest because I’m in LA and my sister in Austin, TX send me a pic of french fries with kimchi from the place I think you’re talking about! I am definitely going to make these, but I’m vegetarian, can I make it without the fish sauce?

  2. OMG these are amazing! Only change made was using 1 sweet potato and 1 celeriac root, left out optional cheese to make it paleo. Really yummy. Thanks for inspiring recipe.

  3. So my hubby went Paleo Jan. 2017 and we stumbled upon this recipe trying to find side dish to take to 4th of July cook out. Everyone devoured this in minutes before our ribs and chicken even hit the grill; seriously! To say these were a hit is an understatement! We’ve since made these at least monthly and currently have another batch in the oven to go with our BBQ Chx. I’ve made as recipe states and some times added bacon bits, green onion or chives etc. and all are amazing! Thanks so much for sharing this delicious dish.
