The Dream Team Behind KPOP Foods…
Mike & Theo (Met in College)
The Story (In their own words)…
“Mike and Theo met at UCLA Anderson, and the late nights in business school turned into late nights at Korean BBQ. Seeing their friends delighted reactions to the delicious and communal experience of Korean food sparked an idea: they could bring Korean flavors right to the people! Using Theo’s grandma’s secret recipe for Korean gochujang sauce, Mike and Theo created their first bottle of KPOP Sauce. Right there, KPOP Foods was born.”
Sweet Potato Fries w/ Kimchi Mayo Recipe
We used Japanese Sweet Potatoes called Murasaki which are sweeter and nuttier, but honestly, anything you douse this sauce in will taste top notch.
2 lbs. Murasaki (Japanese Sweet Potatoes) or Regular Sweet Potatoes
2 tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
KPOP Kimchi Mayo
Benny T’s Vesta Dry Hot Sauce
1/4 cup chopped parsley
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
- Cut the sweet potatoes into sticks 1/4 wide, toss them with oil and spread on 1–2 baking sheets.
- Bake until brown and crisp on the bottom, about 15 minutes, then flip and cook until the other side is crisp, about 15 minutes. Serve hot.
- Toss with Benny T’s Vesta Dry Hot Sauce, salt, parsley and serve with Kimchi Mayo for dunking.
Pro Tip: Heat the baking sheets in the oven first for extra crispy fries.
