Chego! Kimchi Spam Bowl

Chego! Kimchi Spam Bowl, originally uploaded by ~db~.
I have heard a lot about the Kimchi Spam Bowl at Chego!. No less than Jonathan Gold suggested it might be Roy Choi's "dish for the ages," with its unexpected combination of buttered-fried kimchi and rice, sesame, baby bok choy, egg. Oh, and Spam. Wonderful, glorious Spam. I had expected the little chunks of canned meat to be much more assertive, and was quite please to find its flavor to be subdued, and much more about the texture. A really excellent dish, and yea, terrific drunk food. Or so I would imagine. About $9.
