Let's be honest, it's a pain in the ass to eat at Heirloom Market BBQ. Located in a former liquor store alongside I285, the parking is extremely limited and the lines are generally out the door. But when your order is called, it all seems worth it. My normal go-to is the spicy Korean pork sandwich, made with rib meat marinated in gochujang (Korean chili paste) and smoked to perfection. That sandwich has a new rival in this fried bologna sandwich special.
The thinly-sliced bologna is fried and piled on a soft potato roll with Heirloom's spicy kimchi slaw. Kimchi pickles are served on the side. It sounds simple, and it is, but the bologna is a perfect fatty vehicle for the spicy funk of the kimchi. I finished mine in about four bites. Hopefully, this special becomes a mainstay.
