This is another treat inspired by the Kogi taco trucks of California; a sandwich that uses the pineapple dak bulgogi that I had recently made and the pickled red onions that I made specifically for this project. Although the pineapple dak bulgogi works great in Mexican fusion dishes like tacos, burritos, and quesadillas; how about in sandwich form? In addition to the pineapple dak bulgogi and pickled red onions there is some cotija cheese (or feta) that works really well as a substitute for your cheddar and jack. The sandwich is finished off with some shredded lettuce in a Korean sesame vinaigrette , which I cannot seem to get enough of, and a splash of tangy mayonnaise.
The pineapple dak bulgogi sandwich is so amazingly good! All of the components combine to create a symphony of flavours and textures in your mouth! This sandwich has it all from the spicy chicken to the sweet pineapple to the tangy and crunchy pickled red onions to the super tasty shredded romaine in the sesame vinaigrette to the creamy mayo. I practically inhaled my sandwich and I am rather glad that there were no leftovers as I would most certainly have had a second or even a third.
