Korean fusion has been a hot label in recent years, thanks in no small part to several food trucks and market vendors dishing out bulgogi tacos and the like. Continuing in that trend, New Jersey-based Kimchi Smoke—who've been showing up at area food markets—will be bringing their version of "Southern Korean BBQ" to the Old Bowery Station at 168 Bowery beginning today at 4 p.m.

Kimchi Smoke's Rob Cho tells us they specialize in Southern-style smoked meats (think brisket, ribs, etc.) served with regular or smoked kimchi. Each day of their six day residency will feature three to four different menu items, from their best selling Austin Cho (Smoked Brisket, Smoked Kimchi, Fatboy Sauce, Pickled Onion on Brioche) to kimchi-filled empanadas and a spaghetti with Korean vodka sauce.
