Dim Ssam a Gogo at Fort Lauderdale and Pembroke Pines Food Truck Roundups

Dim Ssam a Gogo chef/owner Richard Hales is a graduate of the French Culinary Institute who trained with uber-chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten.  He owns Sakaya Kitchen in Miami, which named one of the "Top six places to eat Asian-fusion" by Bon Apetit magazine. That's saying a lot. Why all this information? Because if you think eating at food trucks is a waste of your calorie intake, you should rethink Dim Ssam a Gogo.

The truck brings Hales gourmet Korean-inspired fare mobile. A few tweaks of the menu to make items portable were done, but the freshness and tastiness remain the same. 


he menu changes daily, but expect such savory bites as kimchi eggrolls

with ginger hot sauce ($5 for two), pork belly chili buns ($7 for 2),

short rib chunk'd cheesy tots ($7), and ginger Brussels sprouts that are

absolutely addictive ($5). 

Two food truck roundups are

scheduled for this Saturday, so bring cash (many food trucks still don't

take plastic) and your appetite for a little food truck love. Dim Ssam a

Gogo will be at both roundups.
