“We’ll be back in seven weeks,” was all the boys from Seoul Sausage would say a few months ago before disappearing, leaving their Los Angeles fans fiending and confused. Then quips and hints of their whereabouts started to trickle in through Twitter from across the country raving about their Korean inspired sausage creations. Turns out Seoul Sausage was competing in the Food Network’s The Great Food Truck Race and owners Ted and Youg Kim and Chef Chris Oh have found themselves among the third season finalists.
Upon their return to LA they, unsurprisingly, found themselves even busier than before they left. They were in the middle of preparing their brick-and-mortar location for opening before hitting the road for filming. Besides working hard to get their Little Osaka storefront ready they’ve also served up their unique sausages at the Los Feliz Village Street Fair and the 626 Night Market while also taking home the award for Best Noveau Street Food at this years LA Street Food Fest with their Fiery Balls (where they tied with Kogi). They’re aiming for an early September opening with a menu featuring their signature Kalbi Sausage with Kimchi-Relish and Garlic Jalapeno Aioli and Spicy Pork Sausage served with Apple Cabbage Slaw. A chicken and vegetarian sausage are also in the works and, hopefully, their award-winning Fiery Balls make it onto the menu and into your mouth as well.
We’ll be showing our support for Seoul Sausage at tonight’s The Great Food Truck Race premier party in Downtown Los Angeles and catching the first episode at 10pm. After tonight’s premier you can watch Ted, Youg and Chef Chris cooking their Korean sausages across the country in hopes of winning their very own food truck every Sunday at 9pm on Food Network.
