Korean Air operates food truck in downtown Houston
(Yonhap) — Korean Air Lines Co., South Korea’s largest full-service carrier, said Tuesday that it is operating a food truck in downtown Houston to showcase some of its favorite meals served on international flights.
The truck will serve 250 meals per day during lunch hours at the so-called energy corridor of the city near the headquarters of General Electric Oil and Gas and Chevron Corp., the company said.
The meal service that kicked off Monday and runs through Oct. 26, plans to serve 100 bibimbap, 100 servings of bulgogi deopbab and 50 plates of galbijjim per day.
Korean Air’s bibimbap menu has been a staple since it was first introduced in 1998 and received the Mercury award from the International Flight Catering Association. Bibimbap is a dish of rice, vegetables, meat and hot pepper paste, while galbijjim is braised beef short ribs. Bulgogi deopbab, is a bowl of rice topped with bulgogi or grilled marinated beef.
The airline has been at the forefront of helping people to experience the taste of traditional Korean cuisine and has operated food services at international food exhibitions since 2009.
The company said the latest move comes after Korean Air began scheduled flights between Incheon International Airport west of Seoul and George Bush International Airport in Houston on May 2.
