To celebrate the second anniversary of their Little Osaka storefront, Seoul Sausage owners Chris Oh, Ted Kim and Yong Kim committed a Pork on Pork Crime. I would hardly classify the sausage special as criminal, but for $10, some people might call it a steal.
Seoul Sausage’s kitchen crew grilled spicy pork sausages, imbued with chile paste, sugar and Korean spices, and topped the coarse link with a strip of crispy bacon, which Oh pulled from a cured pork belly bouquet. Tart, crunchy apple slaw, creamy avocado and punchy kimchi pickled onions and scallions completed toasted bun-bound proceedings.
In only two years, the Seoul Sausage men have made a considerable impact on not only Little Osaka, but on L.A. The Great Food Truck Race champs have curated food vendors for huge Asian markets in K-Town and at Angels Stadium. They operate a successful restaurant and food truck, and expansion plans are in the works. By year three’s conclusion, they could easily double their business, which is great, so long as they continue to take pork along for the ride.
