When Has Your Meal Had A Story Like This?
Published on October 21, 2009
Thanks for the link, Matt! This article was one of my favorite to write based solely on the uniqueness of the dish- it's a cultural, historical, and personal lesson in a bowl. The Korean war still lingers in the memory of older Koreans, who went through the bleak times following the war, when this dish emerged. I don't know if anything like this exists in the U.S, if so, I'd love to hear about it, but it these types of stories that enrich your travels abroad. Who knew bits of floating Spam could offer so much?
