Dealing with Dinner for International Couples

Matt Lamers and Olga Min did a story on how international couples cope with dinner decisions.  Eun Jeong and I (not pictured) were interviewed for the piece.

Also check out Jean Oh’s piece on summer ‘boyang’ foods.

It also looks like “hansik” (Korean traditional cuisine) restaurants are dying out at the big hotels.  Let’s hope that the Korean menu at the W Walker Hill can buck that trend.

Cho Tae-kwon, known in these quarters as having owned the poster child for overly pretentious Korean restaurants, the Gaon, again harps that Korean food must be prissied up on white tablecloths to be acceptable outside Korea.  Personally, I think he’s just trying to sell his liquor and pottery.

  1. Ha, that war is the constant internal battle I face all the time. I am Korean enough that I could eat just rice all the time, but I am American enough that burgers and fries can hit a spot that no bowl of rice can. I really need to stop reading my food blogs because this is making me hungry and I have an hour until I can eat lunch. Eep!

  2. I could eat Korean food anytime besides breakfast where I like my bowl of cereal, but often times it is my Korean wife that wants to go eat American food and not me.
