Eats of Asia in the Crossroads Farmers Market is a small restaurant with a decent sized, funky menu. With the Twitter tag #yycstreetfood you can follow the rave reviews about their creative dishes. If you’re coming to the market to do some shopping, come hungry and have some lunch (or brunch) first!
The menu all looked really good, and it was hard to decide. I decided on the Bibimbap with pulled pork, vegetables, shiitake and scallions on top of rice topped with a fried egg and crushed peanuts. The spicy sauce they drizzled on it brought the whole dish together and made my eyes water only a little bit! So good! The egg was perfectly cooked, the pork tender and flavourful, and the pickled cucumber gave an awesome little kick.
I also tried the Spam Musibi not because I was super hungry – simply because I hadn’t had fried Spam in 25 years! Yum! These little bits of Spam heaven were delicious, albeit difficult to eat. The first bite was great, and then after that they kind of fell apart. It was a toss up – fingers or chopsticks? I ended up doing fingers first and then moving to chopsticks.
If you don’t mind the crazy parking lot and eating in a market atmosphere, you totally need to try this place!
