Ask the Han brothers to describe the food at Oddseoul, their buzzy snack bar on Ossington, and they’ll cite their Korean background, Philly upbringing and shared love of Mexican food. Their avocado-cilantro slaw is refreshing and dead easy to make at home, with sesame and chilies for punch, pickled carrots and daikon for crunch, and avocado for creaminess. It’s best enjoyed beside a gooey homemade grilled cheese.
