SIKGAEK CHUNHA – # Anthony Bourdain – No Reservation Special #

The specialty of Sik gaek is a boiling hot pot filled with seafood that continues to rumble and gurgle even as it hits your table. So while the ambiance is sparsely decorated, with graffiti on the ealls and stools that can make sitting for any period of time a challenge, the food is some of the most authenic to its home country that one will find, including live octopus chopped into inch-long bits. – New York Post PULSE September 6, 2009 Cover Story

A reconstruction of one of my favorite old buildings in San Jose, that of the old “Cuban Restaurant”located on Sixth Street just north of Jackson Street in Japantown. The building is currently abandoned and has been occupied by a variety of uses since its initial construction in the 1890s. Initially it was a Japanese boarding house until 1905. In 1915, the Ng family, who owned the institutional “Ken Ying Low” noodle house in the nearby Heinlenville Chinatown, bought the building as the new location for their restaurant. Mr. Ng contracted the Nishiura brothers to add the cantilevered balcony with its barrel-vaulted roof, an architectural element that was not only popular in San Francisco’s Chinatown, but it was a key component of the former Ken Ying Low on Cleveland Avenue (between Sixth and Seventh Streets, a half block away). This restaurant operated until the 1970s, and in its heyday was famous throughout California- Chinese and Japanese folks from as far as Sacramento would come to meet, eat, and gamble at this venerable institution. After being owned by the Ng’s, it was a Filipino store for a time, and then a Cuban International Restaurant in 1981.

Torch symbol of China violate human rights: Sponsor pull out

The ‘Hu Jintao clique’ (CCP elite) was doing everything possible to undermine HH Dalai’ image. Chinese media continue attacks on Dalai Lama despite talks offer. the Communist Party mouthpiece, the People’s Daily. Beijing fund thousands Chinese oversea turn out to support the torch relay in San Francisco US, Jakarta Indonesia,Canberra Australia, Seoul South Korea, but it backfire turn to riots attack Pro Tibet. I hope the mentality turns for the nationalists/patriots and they start protesting their own government. Hearing news of foreigners being harassed physically in China makes me ashamed to be Chinese. But mob mentality is a scary thing. Let’s Boycott Lenovo: A China base Company. A sponsor Beijing Olympic. It own IBM thinkpad notebook. Lenovo is a supporter of torch relay route to Tibet as China brutally crackdown, killing Tibet monks, cut off food and water in many monasteries and violate human rights, cut off information after the unrest in Tibet. Please spread the word “boycott Lenovo”

Culinary Travels – Austin – No City Limits

You don’t have to go to San Francisco or New York to find authentic, homegrown restaurants producing outstanding cuisine. If you’ve never been, Austin is a hidden gem-attractive, diverse, and delicious! I’ll shine the spotlight on everything from barbecue to Italian, Chinese to international, and everything in between. We’ll also hook up with Damian Mandola of Carrabba’s fame for a visit to his unbelievable Italian market, and we’ll visit the Chinatown Center, which is bringing a whole lot of China to a little slice of Austin. I think you’ll find that dining is delicious deep in the heart of Texas.
