Quick Bite: Crispy Pork Bun With Cucumber and Sweet Chili

Pictured above: Crispy marinated pork loin with cucumber, green onion, and sweet chili sauce nestled into a house-made Chinese bao (bun) from Dim Ssam A-Go-Go, one of the latest gourmet food trucks to hit the streets.


The truck belongs to Miami Beach's Sakaya Kitchen, a sort of pan-Asian fusion izakaya where French technique and local ingredients bring the slow foodish aspirations of chef Richard Hales into focus. The

dark-gray truck with graffiti scrawled all over the sides recently

began hitting the streets in Coral Gables and at festivals all across

Miami-Dade County. It merges exotic Asian ingredients (Korean ssamjang,

kimchi. crispy duck, pork loin) with traditional fast-food presentation

-- a perfect example is the Korean-spice pulled pork sandwich with

kimchi "slaw."
