A wonderfully delicious Korean BBQ burger featuring tempura kimchee, grilled rice balls (yaki onigiri), green onions, kalbi (seasoned short rib patty), cilantro and a gooey fried egg right in the middle.
The absolute best udon in Honolulu is a cafeteria style restaurant at 2310 Kuhio Ave called Marukame Udon. The udon noodles are made fresh and there’s almost always a line out the door. Blame it on their delicious udon selections, crispy fried tempura toppings, rock bottom prices and quick service. If you’re ever visiting Honolulu, Marukame Udon is one place to put on your must try list.
Discovered a great new blog called Pei Wei this morning about Asian food in China, Japan, Korea, Thailand and Vietnam. Here’s a description from the site and a some sample videos featuring the host Alice Shin.
“After hosting a two month national search for the Pei Wei blogger, we selected Alice Shin to accompany our chefs on an 18-day trip throughout the five Asian cultures (China, Japan, Korea, Thailand & Vietnam) that make up our menu. Our chefs will be searching for culinary inspiration for new dishes at Pei Wei as well as looking to re-visit some of the classic traditional flavors from each country. Alice will be tagging along to share all the sights, sounds, smells and tastes of the trip with you.”

What do you do if you’re a chef and you’re tired of having to cut and shave noodles everyday? Well if you’re Chinese chef Cui Runquan of Hebei Province in China, you build a robot to do the job for you.
“All day long, I used to work beside a pot of boiling water, shaving noodles by hand and pouring them in,” he explained. “It’s hot and steamy work and I thought how wonderful it would be if I could build a robot to do it for me.”
“The design of the blades integrates the best angle and positions of a real human chef. This way the robot can perform good and efficient work,” added Cui who is now working with a factory in Beijing to hopefully bring this noodle cutting robot to the masses.
Why eat your slice of pizza when it arrives at the table, when you can dance with it instead? I think it’s time the U.S. started rethinking their commercials because I’m positive Pizza Hut sales are up in Korea after they aired this on KTV!
