Making a foreign cuisine its own
The blog, Kevin and Ann Eat Everything, has an excellent post on Korean Chinese food. There are two restaurants in Ellicott City where you can get it, Tian and Han Joong Kwan.
As the blog points out, we think of them as Korean restaurants, but in Korea they would probably be considered Chinese. ...
Kevin, who wrote the post, has suggestions on what to order and so on. But the post also raises the interesting question of what happens when another country takes over a cuisine that we're familiar with, makes it its own, and then introduces the new version to us.
I haven't eaten at either of these restaurants, but maybe you have:
Han Joong Kwan, 9338 Baltimore National Pike, 410-461-1099
Tian, 8151 Baltimore National Pike, 410-418-8198
