Just Beyond the Hedges, Rice Village: OH MY GOD. OH MY GOGI!
Say you are a Korean who misses her kimchi and has an affinity for Mexican food…OH MY GOGI! We have a solution for you!
OhMyGogi is a Mexican-Korean fusion food truck with an eye-catching logo and some smiley cooks! With tacos, fries, quesadillas, and burgers, it’s no surprise this food truck is gaining popularity in Houston. I ordered the chicken kimchi quesadillas ($5), and the kimchi bulgogi fries ($6)…OMGI! It was so delicious. It was like being back in Singapore again, where food has an extra punch of excitement. Surprisingly, the kimchi and the cheese are married from the best of two worlds: the creaminess of the cheese and the crunchiness of the kimchi. It is a match made in heaven.
Chicken Kimchi Quesadillas: What really amazed me was the kimchi and cheese pressed in the middle of the tortilla, and the light house special sauce with salsa roja on top. It was so elegantly crafted and paired nicely with a small slice of lemon. The tiny bit of cilantro was just enough to make the quesadilla both filling and refreshing.
OMG! Kimchi Bulgogi Fries: I have never eaten fries with a fork before, but when you go to OhMyGogi, it’s a must. Slaughtered on top: four different kinds of cheeses, spicy house sauce, sriracha sauce, with onion and cilantro… this is stole the spotlight of the night. It’s a deceiving dish because it could easily be overlooked as an ordinary basket of fries with some ketchup and cheese, but it’s secretly packed with explosive flavor.
Overall, OMG! is a nice break from studying and a good way to excite your taste buds. If you think eating food at night makes you sleepy, OMG! is like drinking a Red Bull or getting a double-shot espresso drink. It creates a whole new level of late night snacking. You will just crave OhMyGogi.
Check out their twitter for information about when they are open here. And as a heads up, if you are going for the food and not just to satisfy your after beer munchies, go on a weekday, so you don’t fight with the long lines on Friday and Saturday nights.
