Robb's Review: On the Menu

This week in Café we contemplate the similarities between the food stalls in the Komart Korean grocery store on Gessner with the street vendors of Asia. Some Asian street vendors’ creations, like tapioca tea, which was first sold from a cart in Taipei, have gone on to become international sensations. The last Korean crossover is a toasted sandwich. After gaining popularity at street vendor stalls, bacon and egg toasts, pepperoni pizza toasts and other such sandwiches have become the foundation of a new fast food restaurant category in Korea. No doubt one of the Korean chains — Sukbong Toast, Isaac Toast or Toastoa —will soon open a franchise on Long Point. – Robb Walsh
