Buckwheat noodles are generally underrated in many Asian cuisines. China, Korea, and Japan have a brilliant noodle culture, and soba and their related variants, and the antecedents of soba noodles are all pretty damn tasty.

I will admit to being a late arriver to Korean cuisine, but it quickly jumped up to the top of the region's food ranking.  Kimchi on hot dogs instead of sauerkraut, gochujang in just so many dishes, cupbob or tteokbokki for lunches with a bit of dakgangjeong....Trying to learn making more of it myself, but for now I'm happy eating out

There's a little half a strip mall here with two Korean cafes, a full restaurant, a korean bakery and a food market all in the same place, and I know stopping there is going to get real expensive, real fast...but it's so worth it

I always get naengmyeon when we go out, even if it's winter! I mean, winter here isn't very cold, so it's refreshing then, too.

Author is spot on about the mustard oil; great addition to the dish. You get those in the kits, though. Restaurants will generally give you bottles of vinegar and mustard so you can add to your preference.

I had naengmyeon on Father's Day and today. It was delicious.

There's a strip mall in Overland Park, KS that has an Asian supermarket, an East Asian cafe, a Korean bakery, a Korean gift store, and a Korean hot dog place. The Korean restaurant is not too far away--like less than a block across the street. And if Korean isn't your thing, the nearby Indian spice market and the Latino grocery store might have what you want. And yes, if you come when you're hungry, it can get expensive.

It's gotten Bibigo dumpings at Walmart. It's f*cking Korean White Castle. Yeah, they're not amazing, and your Grandma can do better, easily, but still, for a fast fix, they are great drunk food.

What would you prefer we do?  Be condemned to a lifetime eating honkey food?

If you go back to Europe, there ARE some of the great cuisines of the world. Italian is amazingly rich, as is French and Spanish cuisine. The English...well, they sent HOW many ships around the world to make their food palatable?

America? While we do have our garbage food, we also have some stuff that we do that no one else does, because it's a weird fusion of cultures and cuisines. This melange of styles has gotten us a diverse cuisine that can be haute, or it can be gas station hot dogs. And to be fair, the French have their garbage food, as do the Italians, or the Germans, it's just new to us. Certainly the Chinese and Japanese do too, even in their street food.

I say, let's celebrate when folks do something well, and if we can learn from it, even better.

As a Korean, I find the recent discovery of Korean cuisine and culture to be a good thing for the most part. I won't say that I'm amused, maybe more like a sense of pride and enthusiasm welcoming people to things that I've enjoyed for nearly all my life. Especially the food aspect because Korean food is f*cking delicious and there's a dish that will satisfy the tastes of everyone from the vegan to the carnivore.

your last point is one of the (many) things I love about Korean food. there is like infinite variation, even in just banchan.

I count myself truly fortunate because 25 years ago I was living in Manhattan and SF, and even more that one of my close friend/colleague at the Met was from SK and he was very excited to show me what's what.

right now, the only thing near us is a SK hotpot joint, which while tasty enough, ain't really count. I have to imagine downtown Phila is better, but here in the outskirts we got almost nothin' (H-Mart about a 45min drive north, I do need to make that pilgrimage happen...)
