Food La La: Making Aloha Kimchee Bap
BY LINDSEY MURAOKA / Special to the Star-Advertiser
This is a special episode of “Koko and Lala’s Cooking Time.”
Kelly Loui and I entered a Korean cooking contest on Youtube called “Delicious Seoul Story.” Judges will choose five finalists to go to Korea next month for a cook off and a chance to win a grand prize. This is our video entry!
Our dish is called Aloha Kimchee Bap. It is kimchee fried rice with pork, spam, and pineapple. It’s spicy yet balanced nicely from the sweetness of the pineapple. It has a nice texture and crunch from the kimchee.
