Kimchi Cult (burgers with Korean topping)

The grub: Korean-style fast food based around the country’s national dish: Kimchi (made from napa cabbage, chili, garlic, ginger and fish sauce). Think Kimchi burgers and sliders (mini burgers with kimchi) served on their own or as a trio, Kimchiwurst, kimchi sandwiches, kimchi cheese fries and Korean soju drink. Delicious.

The vibe: A white and blue street stall manned by Sarah on the till and Danny frantically rushing around grilling and patting meat in order to feed a permanent queue of hungry mouths.

The story:
It’s a labour of love. Danny O’Sullivan and his partner Sarah Hogg started Kimchi Cult in April 2011 after they had been living for two years in Korea and learned the art of the perfect kimchi recipe. They decided Kimchi was worth telling London about so they wrote it all up on a blackboard and never looked back.

The tab:
£4.50/hotdog, £5/burger

Get the lowdown:
weekday markets at Kerb Kings Cross, King’s Boulevard, N1C; Friday nights at Street Feast night market (new Hackney location announced soon); Sundays at Chatsworth Road market, E8. Keep an eye out on @Kimchicult or for their whereabouts.
