seoul food

I am a food tourist, and I'll soon be in Seoul to bring my adoptive daughter home from Korea. I will have 1-3 days to kill and try not to be too nervous before I meet her, so I need immersive, fun, food-related things to take my mind off the upcoming excitement and give my nervous energy something to focus on.

chinese food stall at Berkeley BART?

Can anyone confirm or deny the current existence of that Chinese food stall that used to be parked outside the Downtown Berkeley BART station - it was green and red/pink at one point, earlier than that pink and red - which serves these amazing, incredible dumplings (pork, shrimp or chicken)? Is it still there?

dim sum & then some

A caveat: I prefer New Green Bo to all of these. However, with a group of 10 friends from out of town, do you recommend Jing Fong, Golden Unicorn or another one of Manhattan's giant dim sum emporiums? I'm looking for quality and range. I haven't been back in Jing Fong since it was remodeled but I assume it's still pretty nice.

don't beat your meat

Does the US Department of Agriculture prohibit the use of growth hormones on meat raised for consumption? What other chemicals / additives are prohibited?

food near universal city, ca

I'm trying to put together a restaurant guide for an academic meeting being held in Los Angeles' Universal City. Aside from the (mediocre) places along the nearby Citywalk, can folks recommend interesting / funky / neat / fancy and other types of worthwhile places to eat within a short taxi ride, drive or public transportation trip (from the Universal City metro station)?

flying and eating

Dear international travelers: what, where and when are your favorite food-based cultural festivals? I'm not only asking about agricultural festivals, although I appreciate recommendations for those, too; I'm also interested in religious and cultural festivals where a specific food or ingredient plays a central role.

What kind of dressing should I use on my turkey?

TurkeyFilter: Last night I tested this year's turkey recipe, and it was a failure. I usually make a maple syrup/butter/broth reduction and use that and cheesecloth to make a wonderful bird - 4 years running. This year, though, I have to make a kosher bird as the meal will be held at a kosher family member's residence. The olive oil-based recipe I tried left the skin dry and soggy at the same time - not an easy feat - and the bird was OK but not special. We've deep-fried before to great results, and I assume peanut oil is kosher; should I adjust for another type of non-butter fat (would margarine work? olive oil certainly didn't) or just bite the bullet and deep-fry?
