Metro (that same article also led me to another great street food discovery - Big Apple Hot Dogs) Since then, I have been following Danny on the twitter due to sheer fascination of his fusion Korean Kimchi and beef burger concoction. So when I read on a tweet a few days ago that he was setting up a Saturday stall in Walthamstow Market, I decided to give Maltby street market a miss and pay him a visit instead.
Off I went to the bus stop and soon enough, I arrived at Walthamstow bus station. Once I've got my bearing about the place, I headed toward the market where Kimchi Cult had set up a stall. Through the long and buzzing market, I eventually found the stall, tucked away in the quiet end of the street.
It appeared that after two years spent in Korea, he fell in love with Korean cuisine and therefore decided to set up this unique burger venture. The beef patties were made from quality prime cut and the kimchi were homemade too, he'd even gave me advice on the best way to prevent an exploding fermented kimchi situation.
'Did you put yours in a kilner jar? I put mine in a plastic tub as it has more gives,' he suggested.
We then went on to talk about Singaporean and Malaysian street food and a lack of popularity of Korean food in London food scene.
'I believe that good food should not be just for the rich, and I want to show that you can still eat very well without spending a lot of money.' These were the parting words from Danny and I must say I agree with him wholeheartedly on this.
