thank you for the interesting article. insulation vs. assimilation is a tug-of-war that plays out in most ethnic neighborhoods, i think, and not without a certain amount of divisiveness and contention.

how did you find your korean restaurant in the first place? did your korean friend from work introduce you to it, or recommend it?

once again. i'm sorry if you felt i was insulting you, bt. and of course kimchi chronicles is just television, an entertaining food show--not reality.
i only meant that as a joke. (that you ruined the show for me)
not to worry, bt. all my life people haven't gotten my jokes. as you can see, that hasn't stopped me yet....

Yes, for dessert.

BT, I look kinda Asian, so I usually get the opposite reaction in Asian restos and get extra good service. On the other hand, once in a blue moon the server is so offended by me "fooling them into thinking I'm Asian", that I get crappier service than anyone else.

DH and I went to a Mexican-inspired place last night and shared the pulled pork nachos. He had beer while I enjoyed a margarita.
