This Pizzeria Slices Up Pizzas Topped With Entire Kimchi Dumplings

We’re still stuffed from last month’s NOODS NOODS NOODS presented by Original Cup Noodles event, but that doesn’t mean we can’t anticipate our next cheat day.

Sgt. Pepperoni’s Pizza Store, who created kimchi pizza dumplings exclusively for the Noods festival, has decided to take the next logical step and cement the dumplings on a pizza, for a new permanent menu item.

In a collaboration with Oak and Coal, the two restaurants have created a Kimchi Dumpling Pizza that is topped with chicken, pork belly, kale ramen noodles, and whole dumplings. The dumplings themselves are also stuffed with a mix of chicken and pork belly, along with garlic, ginger, and chives. Everything is then covered in a spicy gochujang sauce.

The new kimchi dumpling pizza is exactly what it sounds like and we wouldn’t wanna anything less than that.

Foodbeast family member Annie Le had this to say:

I wasn’t sure what a kimchi dumpling pizza would taste like, but it was the perfect amount of cheesy, spicy, and crunchy!

You can order this massive pie at Sgt. Pepperoni’s — located in Newport Beach, CA. Be sure to bring a friend or two. We sure did.

5 Instagram-Worthy Foods In Westside Costa Mesa

Tucked just above the beautiful shores of Newport and Huntington Beach is one of Orange County’s oldest and most historic cities — Costa Mesa.

Costa Mesa also happens to be the local Chomping Ground of our friend and popular Instagram foodie, @Dradevsfood.

Join us as we take a ride with Drade to see how he spends his time cruising through local eats within Costa Mesa’s vibrant and ever-expanding food scene.

First stop, Wild Goose Tavern, which is known for a robust list of signature cocktails, gourmet burgers and a super laid back vibe. Drade highly recommends the caprese burger, a juicy burger stacked with a thick slice of fried mozzarella, cilantro chimichurri, and garlic aioli.     

Don’t forget a Wild Goose Sour to go along with your burger, though. This fresh take on the classic whiskey sour – made with Basil Hayden’s, angostura bitters, egg white, and lemon – is not to be missed.

Donuts, anyone? If you’re in Costa Mesa, Sidecar Doughnuts is a must-see for any level of donut lover. Sidecar has been supplying the Orange County scene with delicious, colorful and seasonal donuts for years.

If there’s a must-have at Sidecar, it has to be the Eggs Benedict Donut — made with a poached egg, Benton’s ham, and infused with a homemade basil hollandaise.   

Now it’s time for a steak dinner at Boathouse Collective. One of the most popular plates is the off-the-menu – but always available – 20 oz. ribeye served with yakimo, a.k.a. Japanese sweet potato, and miso butter.

This perfectly cooked, juicy steak is packed with flavor, and the miso butter provides the perfect depth to the dish.

One of the greatest things about Costa Mesa’s proximity to the ocean is the access to super fresh, super delicious seafood at all times. If you’re in the mood, there’s no better spot to check out than Catalina Fish Kitchen.

While there’s plenty to choose from, do yourself a favor and go with the LSB Burrito stuffed with Lobster, Shrimp and Bacon. This surf and turf burrito is smothered in a homemade gumbo sauce (per request) and is a surefire way to make all your Instagram followers jealous.  

For some lighter fare, Oak & Coal is your go-to spot for some Kimchi Dumplings. These perfectly handcrafted dumplings are stuffed with chicken and pork and will become an instant favorite.
