I’ve tried a few places that claim to have the best Korean fried cheese in town, and the one that I like the most is Px Battery Park. If you’re not familiar with this place, Px is a very popular fitness center in San Francisco’s SOMA neighborhood. I go there about once or twice a month with my girlfriends because it’s so convenient. It’s a short walking distance from the Ferry Building and the Embarcadero. I also love the small-scale cafes and restaurants that dot the area, because it’s a fun and laid-back atmosphere.
My favorite thing about Px Battery Park is how consistently they deliver your complimentary blue potatoes, grits, and cheddar. The cheese comes in tiny individual cups, and they are delicious! The secret to their deliciousness is their simple but flavorful ingredients. Most of the ingredients are a mix of cheddar, blue cheese, and Wisconsin cheese. They have a very wide variety of choices ranging from the addicting blue cheese grits to the buttery and cheesy cheddar.
When ordering your cheese, make sure you ask if they have blue fries. It’s one of the cheeses that make people addicted! Blue cheese is a bit rarer than white cheese, so look for an Asian market that offers it. You should also make sure they have the other types of cheeses listed above.
Korean Fried Cheese
In addition to the delicious blue cheese, Px also serves some delicious Korean fried cheese. This cheese is very similar to the cheese you’ll find at many of the Korean bbq places, only it comes in little bags instead of wedges. You can even get them with a sliver of white bread on the bottom for a sweet surprise! I’m a big Korean fried cheese fan, and I enjoy trying new places with different sauces and flavors.
There is also another variety of cheese in Korean BBQ restaurants that I love! It’s called Purdy cheese and is made from sheep milk. I have never tried this cheese, but people seem to like it when they order it. I think they call it “Purdy cheese” because it resembles the texture and curd of sheep milk.
I’m not going to lie to you, my mouth is Watery cheese, but it is very difficult to eat. My first time trying it I thought it was awful, but I’ve had friends try it and they all loved it. If you don’t have the luxury of trying it yourself, don’t worry because there are a couple of places around where you can buy Purdy cheese near me. Just a quick visit to the Asian Market in Kitchener will give you a taste of this wonderful cheese. The Asian Market usually has a very wide variety of fresh and flavored cheese.
Park Su Han Doo
If you are looking for the authentic flavor and style of Korean BBQ cheese, make sure to try out Park Su Han Doo. This cheese is created by accident. A Chinese farmer found that when he was making blue cheese, he combined both Renko and blue cheese and created a new delicious cheese that is still enjoyed today. If you want to try this wonderful cheese, make sure to go to Korea. You won’t be disappointed!
As you can see, I can’t describe Korean fried cheese in just one article. There are so many different flavors and styles of cheeses. What I will say is that if you are ever in Korea, I highly recommend trying some of these cheeses. They are not only delicious, but the best thing about them is that they are very affordable. In North Korea, they don’t even sell cigarettes!
