WangKon936 at The Marmot’s Hole has revealed that a wish has become reality. Galbi tacos exist and are popular–and they’re sold from a truck. It’s run by a Korean-American Culinary Institute of America graduate, and they have a web site. I’ve noticed that a good handful of CIA graduates open food trucks.
A commenter on the Hole made the racially charged statement that only Korean-Americans can make good Korean fusion food. Obviously I disagree, considering I have making Bulgogi Burritos (ugly pics) and Kimchi Quesadillas since my first year in Korea. Oh, and I’m not Korean-American. Eun Jeong is Korean-Korean, and she came up with the Korean Sloppy Joe recipe that is a hit on recipe sites.
It’s not the blood. It’s the attitude.
And as for the Southerner the commenter mentions who smothered Korean BBQ with sauce–where I come from in Alabama, heavy sauce is used to disguise bad BBQ. That dude wouldn’ta flown far in Alabama either.
