New Iowa State Fair food 2023: Korean egg corn dog
👋 Linh here. I always believed cheesy Korean corn dogs would be perfect for the Iowa State Fair. This year, Cluckin' Coop made it happen — with a twist.
What it is: Fried mozzarella cheese and hard-boiled eggs topped with a drizzle of a Sriarcha mayo-esque sauce.
- (It typically comes with bacon, but I had mine without.)
What I liked: This is better than other cheese sticks at the fair, with stretchy mozzarella cheese and a thick, flakey breading that crunches with each bite.
What could improve: The hard-boiled eggs were a bit dry. Maybe dipping sauce could remedy that?
🍳 Fair Factor: This should have been one of the top 10 new fair foods.
- I love the creativity here — take a beloved dish, turn it on its head and add an Iowa egg. 5/5.
