Western Food in Korea, Part Two


Can you believe there's poutine in Korea? We had to go into this place when we saw the menu outside.

We tried three kinds -- the poutine of course, nacho-style, and chili-cheese.  

The poutine didn't compare to Montreal of course, but was the best of the three.  Instead of curds, I think they used pizza cheese.  Sadly, the blandest of the three was the chili.

Enjoyed the posts about Western Food in Korea--- it's always fascinating how different cultures interpret cooking styles from other cultures. Great job!

Doesn't the gravy make the fries go all soggy? I haven't heard of poutine before (being born and bred in Sweden) so I looked it up in Wikipedia.

If the fries come fresh from the fryer they hold up quite well. Of course if you let the dish sit too long, I suppose they'd get soggy... but then again, you wouldn't want to wait too long anyway - no one likes cold gravy...
