I’ve fallen down a rabbit hole the last few weeks of watching Korean street vendors make food (always with lots of butter or lard or shortening) on YT in very ASMR videos without any talking or text explaining what’s being made. These videos can be oddly entertaining and soothing, but they’re also often surprisingly frustrating— Like, this is just hour of the worst-looking fried sandwiches you’ll ever see, and more than once I wished I could reach through the screen and correct them in presentation and preparation. Biggest cultural takeaway: Koreans apparently love garbage white sandwich bread

Full disclosure, I haven't checked out any of the videos, but are they using milk bread?

It looks like white American sandwich bread. But a Google image search of milk bread returns some loaves that look like that. So, possibly? It would make me feel better if that was the case. Some of the ones in the video above sure do look like store brand, super thin uniform sliced white bread though. And there's still no excuse for stacking two split hot dogs on top of each other instead of side by side on a sandwich. Like, come on now.

I'd be curious what the white powder they generously shake on some of the final products is as well (can't remember if it's in this video, but I see it in a lot of these videos, and it's notable because most of the Korean street food in these videos has no seasoning in the ingredients and then they add a shit ton of sauces in the end to factor flavor enhancing in, unless it's this white stuff)

At least in this video, it's sugar

I swear to God these Korean street food cooking videos are going to kill me, why do I keep watching? The latest one in my YT feed features a chef using a blowtorch on a nonstick pan

Looks like BA just came back last month after three off. Haven’t checked to see if any of the new videos are any good though.

Can’t say I’m feeling any of the new hosts/format. Rick Martinez has a new show on the Food52 channel though for those who want a more old school BA feel
