    I thought that I was the only one constantly thinking about what to make for dinner (and for the blog). πŸ™‚
    These nachos look mouthwatering. Such a creative recipe.
    Beautiful photography. As usual.
    Congrats on the first case settled.
    Have fun in Hawaii.

    Have a great time in Hawaii Cynthia! I’m sure it will be so nice and you can stuff yourself with poke (oooh yeah)! Such a gorgeous recipe as usual – I’m sure it’ll keep the cholesterol low πŸ˜‰

    What a destination! I hope you both enjoy the stay there and get a great some quality time with each other. I am great fan of East meet West or at least North West; they are stunning in the pan but even better if i had them here.

    this looks beautiful and sounds delish! i love that bowl#2 came up with the idea, putting good food on nachos sounds like the kind of thing a boy would do, doesn’t it? maybe you should check with his mom to see if he’s done this before. πŸ˜‰

    eggboy loves anything with a corn tortilla… he is going to LOVE this!!!! i’ll definitely be making it soon. OHMYGOSH congratulations #b2 on the case and have so much fun in hawaii!!!!!! come visit me when you’re back because i just discovered a secret menu at the town pizza parlor which basically says that you can get any of their pizzas as nachos instead.

    Finally, someone wonders the same thing – that making something “at 1 AM on a Wednesday is a normal and worthy endeavour.” πŸ™‚ I would have made many recipes during that time myself if I lived alone.

    I had never liked nachos, but it would definitely change now that I see this Kimchi & bulgogi nachos. This is such a fantastic idea; way to go Bowl#2!!!!

    Anyway, have a wonderful vacation. I am looking forward to seeing all your photos πŸ™‚

    i turned to dw last night when i saw this in your flickr and said bulgogi + nachos, why didn’t i think of this? yes to this so hard.
    thanks for the cambridge link, we are headed to boston next month for our anniversary and i’m only just now compiling a list of things to do and places to see and foods to eat.

    have a wonderful trip to HI.

    omg. i NEED these! i love how you used ground beef, because, yes, it is infinitely more scoopable! and kimchi…on nachos!! LOVE πŸ˜€

    I love that B2 came up with this idea!! Although you should still take all the credit, you made them πŸ™‚ They look delicious!! I hope you two have the best time in Hawaii! Congrats on B2’s case – what perfect timing!

    Correction, 1AM definitely IS the right time to make bulgogi nachos. (Then again, when isn’t?)
    These are NEXT LEVEL.

    Hope you have the bestest time in Hawaii! Make sure too eat one too many shaved ice or whatever it is that they do there in my honor. <3

    yes yes yes! frank loves the kimchi nachos from kimchi grill, so i can imagine how awesome the combo is!

    and have a blast in hawaii! all the best for safe and adventurous travels! xoxo!

    Kudos to bowl #2 for coming up with this brilliant idea! I love anything and everything on nachos and your kimchi bulgogi version looks daaaaaaamn good. I hope you guys have an amazing vacay. You definitely deserve it after surviving the first year as associates. I know how exhausting this profession is – I honestly believe that lawyers should take more breaks throughout the year because otherwise, you’re staring at inevitable burn-out. Eating lots and lots of poke, lying around in the sun, and wedding planning sounds marvelous! And also, make sure to down lots of tropical drinks with tiny umbrellas perched kitschily on top!

    I totally think of things to cook/write for the blog at the most random times too. Oh, like while brushing my teeth.

    Anyways, the nachos sound delicious and there’s nothing, nothing wrong with fusion if done right. Like this πŸ˜€

    I’ll sure you’ll have an amazing time in Hawaii. Bring back some photos for the rest of us!

    Awesome! It is now 1am and I’m going to go to bed wondering whether I should really be making nachos. There’s a Korean restaurant here in SF that makes poutine with bulgogi and kimchi and they are incredible. I bet these nachos are even better! Wishing you and B2 an amazing trip and save travels!

  15. says:

    August 27, 2014 at 2:13 pm

    Lolol you’re just hilarious, as usual!!! Also brilliant. Do we share a brain? I’m currently planning a nacho bar for a bday gathering on sat and everyone will think I’m a freaking genius if I put this out. Whee!! I’ve never made bulgogi before, but the flavors sound SO GOOD–pear + ginger + soy? YUM. Dying to try a vegetarian spin on this!! Have SO MUCH FUN IN HAWAII!!!!!!!!!

  16. says:

    August 27, 2014 at 10:59 pm

    Cynthia, I know little to nothing of Korean food but I wanted to tell you that these nachos look amazing! Well I have tried kimchi once and I’m not sure why. But you put it on nachos!!! Good for you. I live with a similar (mostly) uninspiring in the kitchen person so I know what you mean. Have fun in Hawaii! Is that where B2’s family lives? Lucky you. Stttttttretch out the summer lady! You’ve earned it.

    Hope you have a fabulous trip to Hawaii! When you figure out all the details of this nachos only diet, I’m on board. Whoever said nothing good happens after midnight was obviously wrong. Because: BULGOGI NACHOS!

  18. says:

    I’ve never heard of bulgogi before yet alone of kimchi & bulgogi nachos but boy does this look delicious! All that melted cheese on top… Yes! Also, I can totally relate to that frustration of “what the heck should I have for dinner tonight??”. How can ones brain at the same time be so full of food (cause let’s be honest, approximately every second thought of me is food related) AND lacking food inspiration? It’s probably the same thing as when your closet is full of clothes yet you feel like you’ve nothing to wear… Well, well. BULGOGI, FOLKS!!

    Safe passage to Hawaii, dear! Hope it’s restful for you both AND I hope you have time to dream up even more TOTALLY NECESSARY fusion-y foods :))) xo

  20. says:

    August 28, 2014 at 8:02 pm

    Ahhhhh now I want this, like really bad! Of all things I could have tried, I still haven’t been able to make it to the Mex-Korean food trucks. Great job with this recipe, and I love how you added pear to the bulgogi. I normally use pear, kiwi, or apple. Just depends what’s in my fridge. And it’s so strange how we girls seem to be the foodies in the relationship, as my husband isn’t that much into food either. Good thing my daughter (14 months old) is crazy about food and perhaps a little too much. πŸ˜›

    I’m totally ready to sign up for that nacho diet…

    Hope you guys are having a wonderful + relaxing + ennergising time in Hawaii! You guys so deserve a proper break and some good quality downtime xo

    This is an incredible pile of chips girlfran! What a great post πŸ™‚ I’m so pleased yall are enjoying a well-deserved vacation and wonderful food and sun. Hurray! Meanwhile, I can’t believe I’ve never combined kimchi and tortilla chips! I love B2s brief mention of this idea… that is so how my husband and I are πŸ™‚ Ummmm I’m suddenly thinking about kimchi hot queso dip. Dang, you’re a genius with this!

  23. says:

    August 31, 2014 at 10:12 pm

    HI Cynthia, love this, sounds so good. this is going to sound horrible but sometimes I get so mad at my husband because he can always fall asleep so easily.

  24. says:

    September 1, 2014 at 8:57 pm

    Love, love, love your photos and blog! Kimchi – Bulgogi Nachos is one of my favorite snack foods! It’s great with fried wonton chips as a substitute to tortilla chips too! πŸ™‚

say hello!
