Ahn-Joo made my co-workers and me really sad.
The Korean snack bar on wheels sounded so promising.
Bulgogi bowl -- Korean BBQ beef, garlic fried rice, spicy pickled cucumbers ($8).
This was the winner amongst our selection, which is pretty pathetic because it was only ok at best.
Spicy chilled buckwheat noodles, Fuji apples, Korean vegetables ($5) and bacon-wrapped rice cylinders, jalapeño ponzu ($3).
Spicy chicken and Korean pepper skewers ($3).
Korean nachos -- fried rice cakes, smoke chile queso, soy-braised pork, kimchee salsa ($7).
dduk. Love! I hated this. The pork was palatable, but the dduk was so wrong. So dessicated. So rock-hard. We could've pelted each other with them. They were a far cry from the wondrous chewiness that they should've been.
Fuji apple egg roll, ginger mascarpone ($5).
If this meal was indicative of what Ahn-Joo always serves, I don't know how it stays in business.
Oh how sad. Those Korean nachos were on my list of food truck fare I really wanted to try. Guess I will cross it off the list.ReplyDelete
I generally stay away from "blah blah nachos" or "blah blah pizza." :)ReplyDelete
We had mediocre food truck food last night. I kept thinking maybe because they are always on the move the word doesn't spread that they suck.ReplyDelete
boo. the bacon-wrapped dduk is usually freakin GLORIOUS at korean drinking establishments and are on the house at a korean sushi/raw fish place the bear and i frequent. mmm.ReplyDelete
Nice post. Thanks for the review.ReplyDelete
I haven't had much luck with food trucks lately too. I'm over them at this point.ReplyDelete
This truck looks like it should have been so good! How sad that its potential is lost ...ReplyDelete
Oh, noes. Rock hard dduk is unacceptable.ReplyDelete
There is a reason why I was always the weirdly chunky Korean kid. I take my dduk veryfuckingseriously.
