Whenever I eat Korean food, I feel I could've made it myself which is not a compliment. It often seems to be just stuff in a bowl but with less craftsmanship than Chinese or Japanese.


The Korean menu does seem rather soup-intensive, at least at the place I go to.  I'm a bulgoki fan myself - puts fajitas to shame.

And I do enjoy the banchan (sides), including kimchi.  (Figure this out - I don't like sauerkraut but I do like kimchi, despite the fact that they're both pickled cabbage.  Maybe the spiciness makes the difference?)



You're kidding, same thing here with me, I think it's the spiciness.  Korean restaurants aren't all exclusively soup though.  We actually have one where they have Mexican staff bring out real chunks of charcoal wood to the table grills.

Just wanted to mention that I went to Atlanta a month or two ago (business trip - Siebel Tools class), and introduced my coworker and fellow traveler to the wonders of Viet food, at Com Dunwoody.  He was suitably impressed.


BRUTAL.

Definitely Vietnamese of the 3 I've had, but I've not tried Korean I don't think...

Thai food for me, with Vietnamese in second. Strangely enough, even though I've been to Vietnam twice, the best Vietnamese restaurant I've ever been to was in China (where I lived for 5 years; plus my wife is Chinese, so I still eat Chinese food on a nearly daily basis :-). On the other hand, Thai food in Thailand beats the Thai food one gets in the US; there's so much more variety, and everything is very fresh. I like Korean food, although it can't hold a candle to those two. Japanese food is excellent, but I don't have nearly enough experience with it as I do with the other 3. (Korean restaurants are very popular in China.)

I was lucky enough to have a Vietnamese friend growing up, as well as an Indian one.  I've never tasted food in a restaurant that was quite as special as the homemade dishes my friend's Moms and Aunts cooked up in their respective homes.  I was pretty spoiled from a young age eating real Vietnamese.

It was also great learning about their cultures, though both boys were very eager to ditch their home ways, much more interested in Americanizing.....I liked hanging out at their house, they wanted to go to my house or fast food placesLOL

I struggle with Sushi in USA. They love to throw in the " mock" crab all the time which is synthetic in taste. I need to find the right susi provider :-). Love sashimi too!
