Chi'lantro BBQ, the one-time food truck turned brick-and-mortar mini-chain, is one of Austin’s Korean Barbecue pioneers with an interesting twist. The acclaimed Korean street food goes south-of-the-border with heavy Mexican influence in taco, burrito, and bowl forms. Chi’lantro (kimchi and cilantro, get it?) is most widely known for the Original Kimchi Fries. Listen closely: French fries are topped with your choice of protein (spicy pork isn’t the only option, but it may as well be), caramelized kimchi, Cheddar and Jack cheeses, onion, cilantro, magic sauce (it really is magical), sesame seeds, and Sriracha. They’re good for sharing, but you’ll want your own, and maybe add some queso... you are in Texas, after all.
