5 ways to eat kimchi in Las Vegas


Korean Shrimp Tacos at CraftKitchen. (Facebook)

 

CraftKitchen

The popular Henderson breakfast and lunch spot CraftKitchen uses kimchi to add a Korean touch to the shrimp tacos, which are available during lunch hours and at their weekly “Friday Recess” evening hours. The fermented veggies sit atop soy-marinated shrimp in soft corn tortillas, along with garlic-chili mayo, pickled jalapeños and micro cilantro. $14.75 for three.

CraftKitchen, 10940 S. Eastern Ave., 702-728-5828, craftkitchenlv.com

Soyo Korean Restaurant and Bar

The hip, eccentric Korean spot Soyo offers a kimchi pancake, or kim chi jyun, reminiscent of the scallion pancakes you may know from your favorite Chinese takeout menu, only more complex. Among the many competing flavors are a subtly sweet base and the dominant tanginess of the title ingredient. $7.

Hobak Korean BBQ

While Chinatown’s Hobak is known primarily for its full Korean barbecue dinners, don’t overlook the hearty kimchi stew offered a la carte. It’s a spicy tomato broth packed with kimchi and pork that will fill you up all on its own at a fraction of the price of the signature offerings. $10.

Hobak Korean BBQ , 5808 Spring Mountain Rd., 702-257-1526, hobakkoreanbbq.com

Other Mama

In a restaurant known for seafood, Other Mama’s kimchi fried rice has managed to become an unlikely signature item. Chef Dan Krohmer packs the flavorful mix with seasonal mushrooms and kimchi, tops it with a fried egg and serves it alongside four beautifully prepared slices of pork belly. $15.

Other Mama, 3365 S. Durango Dr., 702-463-8382, othermamalv.com

Bao Now

While the kimchi is merely a condiment (along with gochujang sauce) on the short rib bao at Lucky Dragon’s casual eatery. In reality, however, its spicy flavor dominates the dish. Three for $7.
