Recipe: Korean Tofu “Steak”

Not THAT Tofu Steak A larger variation of many traditional Korean pancakes, Tofu Steak was trendy for a while in dieting circles. The "steak" in this sense is supposed to resemble the Korean and Japanese versions of Hamburger Steak. It's basically Tofu Meatloaf. You...

3 Korean Diet Foods To Help You Lose Weight

Recipe: Acorn Jelly Salad (Dotorimuk Muchim 도토리묵무침)

This Korean vegan recipe--oh, why do I even bother saying it's vegan? It's just good. I had it for the first time during my second year in Korea. San Maul, which is still my favorite restaurant, tucked in the southern foot of Mt. Gwanaksan....

10 Best Korean Chicken Joints

My rule of thumb is this. To tell a good chicken place, look at the people inside. If it’s full of beautiful young women taking selfies, likely isn’t good chicken. If it’s full of middle-aged men who look like life has kicked them in the teeth–GREAT CHICKEN!

10 unique souvenirs you should get in Seoul

One of the most stressful parts of traveling is getting souvenirs for friends, family, and office mates. I've lived in the Seoul area since 2004, and I've been a tour guide for a few years. In my own experience and through talking with tourists over the years, I've...

Promoting Korean Food, Chapter 4: Y2Y Marketing

A few years ago I was asked to write a small book on promoting Korean food. I finished the manuscript, but it never got published. The publisher ended up going out of business. Here is the old manuscript for your enjoyment, posted in segments. Keep in mind that...

2017–A Year of Reflection and Big Questions

This is one of my personal posts. Super personal, so don't expect any Korean food talk here. It's also going to get a bit bleak. This started out as a personal diary in 2004, and I still use it as such. I took a quick glance at my 2016 post. That was a bad year, but I...
