The contents of the bowl in front of me looked familiar. In it, eggy noodles swirling with some variety on the theme of bacon. It was recognizable but at the same time it wasn't. That's because it also included kimchee and – wait for it – Doritos.
[Record scratch across the heavens.]
Welcome to King Noodle in Brooklyn's Bushwick neighborhood, the stoniest stoner restaurant you'll come across this side of San Francisco. Mirrored walls and a disco ball (relics from the space's previous incarnation as a Dominican bar) and a ceiling lined with strips of red, blue and purple Christmas lights illuminate the spray painted walls of corral reefs on a Martian-like landscape (done by local artists at Secret HandShake). If the space seems like an electric Kool-Aid acid test, the menu reads like it was concocted after several hits from an evil wizard bong and a trip to the kitchen to see what's in the fridge: Spam fried rice, mapo tofu with chili cheese fries, and rice cakes with krab and mozzarella in a spicy sauce.
And then there's that dish I described above: kimchee carbonara. When I first heard about it – the restaurant just opened last month – I knew I had to try it.
