Visited Kimchi Smoke last night for a farewell. Pretty much as I remember it. Excellent brisket, good kimchi, lots of pepper paste. Essentially, it's Texas BBQ with Korean accents. I didn't have the cronut with pulled pork or brisket, kimchi, and cheese
Good fries topped with Korean slaw / smoked kimchi, pieces of pulled pork. Good sized helping with lots of peppery paste sauce.
Pulled pork sandwich, sauce, and slaw on a large hamburger roll.
Austin Cho brisket, sauce, kimchi, cheese, bacon, scallions on a ramen bun. Very good, but expensive for what you got.
They were doing a pretty healthy business after 6.30pm. They're at a point where all the NYC buses stop across the street, so there was a steady stream of commuters. Some buses turn left to Oradell, while others turn right to Creskill and Dumont. Good, diverse crowd, many of whom picked up orders previously phoned in,
We sat at the table in front, by the small smoker. Huge wood pile of oak chips. Some looked like they might have been scraps from a wood shop, others were eight inch long logs.
They hope to open the Westwood store "in a few weeks". 40 seats, much more cooking space, hope to expand the catering business.
There's a little Thai restaurant in the closet space across the street. I'll have to check that out next time I'm in the area.
Dreams come in all sizes, shapes, and colors.
