Korean BBQ

Gwinnett County, Atlanta’s ‘New Koreantown’

The name ‘Ktown’ conjures up thoughts of cities like NYC and LA. However, a recent article by CNN blog Eatocracy suggests otherwise. Just in the last decade, Gwinnett County, a suburb of Atlanta, has seen its Korean population double, bringing the total number to about 80,000. Why the South? Among other reasons such as affordable living costs and climate, similar moral values seem to be a particularly compelling factor.

7 Things About Korea: Food

I spoke at length earlier in the week about the fantastic street food options that are on offer in South Korea, but there's a world of flavors inside as well. From the signature bulgogi to more exotic items such as ddok galbi and the infamous boshintong (dog soup) - there's something for most every palette in the Land of the Morning Calm.


When people think of Korean cuisine they generally think of either kimchi (spicy fermented cabbage) or bulgogi, which is a marinated beef usually cooked BBQ style but used in everything from pizza to hamburgers. I've tried it in both its traditional BBQed form and in a kind of stew that was poured over rice. The last of these tries were done at Everland though, so I doubt it was an authentic representation of the dish.


Eat and Be Merry

*First off, I should apologize for not posting in nearly two weeks. I wish I could say it’s because I’ve been busy or because I temporarily lost use of my fingers, but this would just be a lie. The truth is I’ve been having a stint of writers block and thus have been spending more time outside of my apartment during the week as opposed to staying in to write. No worries though. The juices are flowing again. Enough said.
