Hey Kirk, how about Yakyudori? I really like theirs.

STILL haven't had that jokbal bossam... I usually go to Grandma's after 10pm, which becomes Ju-Mak - same owner/chef, but a more limited menu which doesn't include the jokbal bossam. I really need to go there at a normal dinner time!

Such an interesting loco moco, I've been quite intrigued... it's a little far from where I live, need to do some convincing to get the boyfriend to drive there, haha.

Thanks for sharing Cathy! I'm looking forward to FINALLY checking out the fair this year as I've been in SD for over two years and haven't gone yet! Love the theme this year =)

Ooh, there's a location down the road from where I live. Will try it out sometime! The raisin puff pastry looks good.

Hi Kirk, you may laugh at the "Please do not throw fruits & vegetables" sign, but I have seen little Asian ladies dig into those on-sale fruit containers and tossing out the lesser-quality stuff all over the place, all the while pushing the other little Asian ladies aside AND directing their kids/spouses/other family members to get another cart because "there's a three pound limit and each of you are getting three pounds!!" :P

Hahaha maybe it should be jin(4)-he(2)-chu(1), to fully capture the word-by-word translation? :P

Haha my lab actually works on one of the enzymes from Aspergillus... Not from orzyae though, it does have to do with starch degradation. Anyhow, this is pretty fascinating to me from both scientific and culinary perspectives. I may have to pick up a bottle and try it out for myself :) for sharing!!

You caught my attention when you mentioned that the owners were from North Carolina... but then the sauces don't really look right :( I do want to try it though as most BBQ places aren't smokey enough for me... besides Coop's, haha.

Haha I'm writing up a post about my slow-cooker version of this dish! It's infinitely better smoked, though :P I'm gonna try beer or cola next time to add some extra sweetness/maltiness to the pork.

OH boy that Arby's brisket sandwich.. I almost bought one but thought that'd lose me all my Texas cred. Costco's steaks haven't disappointed me yet. Current fave is the short ribs (can't remember if they're choice, comes in packs of 6-8 strips).

I'm also an egg person when it comes to comfort food... Japanese curry with a fried egg. Braised pork belly with marinated eggs. Steamed ground pork patty with an egg on top. Instant noodles with an egg... oh wait, that was my college self :P

Looks amazing! I was on the fence about getting the cookbook, I think I'm convinced =)

Hi Kirk, too bad about Yamadaya. I was there last week and it seemed great as usual... hope you got a bad batch... Lucky for you on the tendons! One of my favorite parts of beef, by far.

Still haven't made my way to Chon Ju Jip... It's on my list but I always forget to go. The goat stew looks interesting, I wonder if it's the Korean take on the Chinese shuan yang rou, haha.

Mmm I love the sausage patties here. Hard to find good ones outside of the South :P

The ba wan (actually, everything there) is pretty inconsistent. First time I had it everything was great, second time everything was off. Haha. When the food is good I'm always like "why don't I come here more often", and other times it's just a slap on my forehead.

Hi Kirk, I've heard of using milk as a tenderizer but that seemed sketchy to me... I guess the idea is that there are enzymes to break down the muscle fibers more? But nowadays how many enzymes are left in milk post processing anyway? haha. I have heard that buttermilk will help, though, because of its acidity. Not sure how kalbi+buttermilk will taste though =P

I've been to the Specialty's and Tender Greens in UTC, and I wasn't too impressed with Specialty's... I agree with the "too perfect-looking" aspect. I've been summoned for jury duty in San Diego TWICE now and I've only been here a year and a half! Haha. I served in El Cajon though, more convenient for parking.
