Do you crave flavor explosions? Are you looking for extraordinary delights? Do you dream of foreign foods tantalizing your taste buds? Well you're in luck, Los Angeles is a food lovers paradise!
This city is made up of an eclectic assortment of cuisine from around the globe. Los Angeles farmers market's are swarming with ethnic food venders. One vender in particular has taken the farmers market circuit by storm. Dave’s Gourmet Korean food is an absolute gem and a rare find.
Dave’s Gourmet Korean food offers a selection of authentic vegetarian and vegan Korean banchan (side dishes) that will have your mouth salivating at first bite. Dave’s raw fermented veggies are so incredibly delicious that carnivores and herbivores alike will rush his stands. You can find one of Dave’s booths at almost every farmers market in Los Angeles. It is more than just a booth; it’s an experience.
Upon visiting Dave’s, a friendly employee greets you with a taste right off the bat. With their tiny chopsticks they combine unique flavors of soy free tempha, spicy cucumber, and diakon radish that fill your mouth with a gangnam style dance party!
Next, try his baked-never-fried BBQ tofu, lotus root, and u-cha (mustard greens) bringing you into a total state of euphoric bliss. To end the meal that you have now sampled, finish off with a healing veggie broth that tastes of unicorn rainbow showers on a warm summers day. Not only are these flavors out of this world, but they have actual healing powers.
Dave is a former acupuncturist and a medicine man of sorts. With his extensive knowledge, he has created a healthy and delicious line of products. Dave uses pear juice as a sugar substitute creating the tastiest seaweed salad on this side of Dadohae-Jin.
His kimchi is 100% vegan and comes in a non-spicy version as well. The oil-free dressings liven up any salad and his teas are magical. The ginger tea consists of fermented ginger in a sage honey that can heal any cold.
Each item is $5 and for every eight you buy, you get one free. Dave’s products last up to two weeks and if transferred into glass jars they can last a month or even longer.
One customer stated that she sends Dave’s to her mother in Florida. Another admitted to purchasing up to eight containers a week on u-cha greens alone. And the Vegan community can’t get enough tempha!
Dave’s has gained quite the reputation and a loyal following. His booth is not to be missed. So next time you’re at a farmers market, head over to Dave’s Gourmet Korean food and prepare for a full bodied foodgasm!
