Bibimbahp and Buffalo Mozzarella – Delicious Dozen Links for Week Ending 3.29.2008

delicious dozen links, week ending 3.29.2008
1. This Week’s Food Safety Terror Alert was a subtle Asian Yellow for Japan and Korea’s ban on tainted mozzarella, but upgraded to Orange for mafia ties to the dioxin.

2. The Next Sushi – With bibimbahp poised as the next big food trend, TheDelicious will be doing a little Seoul searching.

3. Spaghetti Stir-fry and Hambagoo: Japan Looks West – Sounds a lot like Sawtelle.

4. Egg McMuffin Inventor Dies – Mr Herb Peterson, you will be missed in this delicious life more than you know.

5. America’s Healthiest Restaurants – With the exception of Bob Evans, who knew Orange County would be a mecca for America’s Healthiest Restaurants? (Though I don’t think I’ve seen an Olive Garden here yet). Once there, Eat Smart with 20 Dining Tips.

6. A Conversation with Thomas Keller [Charlie Rose] – Will I ever get to the French Laundry?!?!

7. Dining on a Dime, or at the most, $0.99 in either New York or LA – Recession depression.

8. First, Ten Tastiest Food photography tips, then Fruity Photoshop. Absolutely incredible.

9. Speaking of food photography, how often does the food really look like the picture? The text is in German but the 100+ photos speak for themselves.

10. A Short Guide to Restaurant Criticism – Be nice. Or not (but you might get sued).

11. March (Beer) Madness is almost over, but Opening Day is this Monday. Make sure you get the All-You-Can-Eat Seats, because America’s real favorite pastime is eating non-stop junk food for six straight hours.

12. Hamburger Press – You need it. Trust me.

And to finish up the breast of the week: Big Breasts Win Verdict for Japanese Pin-Up – That’s “D” for defense

    EEEK! Sorry about the makeover. If, it’s any consolation, every time I get my make-up done, white people really fill in my eyebrows really dark to make me look (even) more ethnic (I’m Iranian). Blegh!

    The Next Sushi article mentioned Mongolian Hot Pot – is that anything like the Shabu Shabu we have right now? The article said the broth was spiced – at Mizu 212, it’s seems to be just water unless you add the condiments they provide. Are there any of these Mongolian Hot Pot places here already?

    jkru: where in mich do you get bibimbahp? i don’t remember that there were too many korean restaurants when i was living in detroit!

    sara: you should have seen the fuschia and cotton candy pink kabuki theater look i had going on my eyes. it was ridiculous.

    offdcdwzrd: it’s different from the japanese style shabu shabu, though the concept IS similar with the boiling water/broth in the middle of the table. i think korean people call the mongolian hot pot “genghis shabu” – it’s a garlic based broth in which you cook meat and vegetables, and then “drink” as soup after the main meal. the only places i’ve had it are in OC! if i find any in LA, i’ll let you know FOR SURE!

    So I haven’t really seen any Korean restaurants in the metro Detroit area ever, esp. not around Grosse Pointe. Go inner-ring suburb homogeneity! But, I’m at Michigan State and I can think of four Korean-American restaurants in the area. I like Charlie Kang’s, mostly because it’s within walking distance and they deliver.

    Oh man, bibimbap can totally be the next big thing as long as it doesn’t mean the k-town plaza food court gets even more crowded! ><

    jkru: grosse pointe??? i was born there!

    the daniel: of course not. everyone can make it at home! unlike sushi, which isn’t, you know, so easy to just whip up at home.

    That’s really crazy coincidence. I stumbled upon your blog in a very haphazard way. I was actually born in Seoul and was raised in Harper Woods and went to Grosse Pointe North for high school.
