Drag Diner

Spoiler Alert: this post will reveal the remaining contestants on RuPaul's Drag Race Season 8 as of Episode 5. Also, excuse the delay in this post since Episode 6 has already aired. 

I've recently been introduced to the world of RuPaul's Drag Race, all thanks to my super fan roomies. I thought the contestants on Project Runway were catty but these queens take it to a whole other level. 

For the roomies' weekly viewing party, they came up with a potluck of dishes to represent each remaining contestant--complete with clever puns. 

Derrick "Berry Spears"
Fruit spears since Derrick Barry is a huge Britney impersonator (and a double-pun!). 

"Ka"-Bob the Drag Queen

Grilled veggie kabobs for one of my favorite queens

ChiChi Devayned Shrimp

Shrimp cocktail for ChiChi

Robbie Apple Turnerover:

Little apple pastries in honor of Ms. Turner

Thorgy Thor Corn

Dill Parmesan Popcorn (roomie Garrett's specialty) for the "Queen" of Pop

Naomi Smalls's Balls
Meatballs for the leggiest queen

Maybe it was fitting that I failed to photograph Citric Acid Betty (aka screwdrivers) for the eliminated contestant, Acid Betty. Sorry and Farewell Betty. 

And finally, Kimchi Fries for my favorite queen: Kimchi! No pun for this one but I was in charge of this dish for obvious reasons. Kimchi Fries were a suggestion from Twin Sista since they're good for a crowd and are completely delicious. And they were a perfect match for the vivacious Kimchi!

Kimchi Fries adapted from Food and Wine

  • oven bake a package of frozen fries
  • marinade and cook 1/2 lb of bulgogi from Maangchi
  • caramelize kimchi (combine 1/2 cup kimchi with 1/4 cup sugar, 2 tbs vinegar, 1 tbs gochujang & 1 tbs soy sauce. add mixture to a hot pan and cook until browned and thickened). 
  • make a small batch of sriracha mayo (1/4 cup mayo + 1-2 tbs sriracha)
  • to assemble: arrange cooked fries on a plate, then top with bulgogi, caramelized kimchi, sriracha mayo and then green onion and shredded cheddar cheese
  • enjoy!
