CGY: Koryo potatoes?
Does anyone know how to approximate the potatoes at Koryo? That place is a godsend when your only option is fast food and I want to make the potatoes at home.
Cube and fry or oven fry a big batch o' potatoes. skins on. Use russets.
Dressing is a combo of mayo, rice vinegar, soy, minced garlic, and sugar (I used maple syrup when I experimented with this). You'll have to just drip a bit of the ingredients into the mayo until you get the right flavour, but this worked for me, more or less. I stopped at Koryo north hill yesterday and, yeah, completely addictiive!
That looks good but I think they actually parboil then deepfry the potatoes not that that's vastly different than what you said. I've watched because I also find them addictive
That is an excellent suggestion Sharonanne- I was mostly trying to figure out the dressing, but yeah, the potatoes aren't just deep fried, they're more.... moist.
re: John Manzo
LOL @ John... I'm pretty sure the 'garlic potatoes' contain garlic.. not to mention my wife call's me out anytime I eat them because my breath smells so bad... But maybe the combination of sugar and mayo with potatos does that? I think not. Thats the only downside to Koryo is that I'm tasting it the rest of the day. I think John's recipe looks pretty dead on.. I always thought there might me some corn starch just because of the color/texture before they toss the potatoes.
I have a really good clone for those taters, double the recipe if you have more thn 2 people eating.
I use a gram scale when cooking, it helps to get thing exactly the same every time...
