Kimchi is such a staple food in Korea that the first South Korean astronaut brought some into space. The government spent years developing a bacteria-free, anti-gravity friendly version of side dish made of cabbage, garlic and peppers. Judging by the cardboard taste and texture of the freeze-dried astronaut ice cream sold at most science museums, our space program didn’t put in as much effort.
More importantly, today, you don’t even need to know the chemical formula for glucose to get free kimchi atop a juicy burger. New York Hotdog and Coffee specializes in Korean-fusion versions of its namesake foods. Starting at 12:30pm today, they’re giving away 100 FREE kimchi burgers to the first 100 people. Don’t be the 101st Dalmatian, scamper to the West Village.
