Seoul Sausage Co. – Rice Balls Like Your Korean-Italian Mamma Made

30 Nov

Another entry into what is fast becoming the new power center of the food scene in LA (the NW corner of Sawtelle and Mississippi in West LA), Seoul Sausage Co. comes fresh off winning that food truck TV contest to bring kalbi hot dogs and kalbi poutine to the masses.

Here’s the phallic menu. Looks like they are keeping things food truck simple.

I had just eaten, but I wanted to try their kimchee fried rice arancini – what they call Flamin’ Balls with DMZ sauce. The good news for white people: their version of spicy is barely spicy. The bad news for Korean people: their spicy is made for white people.

That said, it was actually pretty good. Fried to order, it’s fresh and crispy on the outside. Great. The aioli it’s served with is pretty good, if a little bland. The rice itself is good, maybe just a tiny bit underseasoned.

The funny thing is their fried rice tasted a lot like my mom’s fried rice. A very casual affair, my mom’s fried rice was the same shade of orange as this with almost all the flavor coming from the kimchee and the oil. The deep frying added a nice dimension to it and the aioli topped it all off.

I’m eager to come back and try the rest of the menu. Bring on the kalbi.
