Well, it's coming up on two years now since we signed papers and started the interior work on EtOH's and I still get a lot of people that tell me that they heard about us from here, or used to read my blog. I've learned A LOT in that time and felt like sharing how things have grown or changed from when we first started to now.

If you're looking for something other than turkey for the holidays you might want to try something that's readily (and cheaply!) available in Korea at every corner butcher shop, braised pork shoulder! If you've never braised something before, it's super easy and the recipe is extremely forgiving, so feel free to make substitutions or leave things out if you don't have them (except the meat). I love this whole technique because you can use it to make about a hundred other dishes (Kimchi Jiggae perhaps?). Just change up your meat and/or braising liquids. All you need is a single large pot and a single burner. For this dish I used things that remind me of Korea and Daegu, namely beer, soju, and apples. Here's what I used.
- A pork shoulder (you can just use one, but I was cooking for eight people so I used one and a half)- "Moksal" in Korean
- One bottle of soju
- Good apple juice (not too sweet, go for 100% not from concentrate if possible)
- Beer (I used Hite, but use whatever)

I'd heard good things about Mies in the past, but I've walked past this place about a million times without ever stepping foot inside. Why is this? Because they serve "fusion" food. In my personal experience Korean fusion is far more often a miss than a hit, so I guess I kind of just wrote the place off without ever giving it a chance. Luckily though, we happened to be downtown at lunchtime the other day and I figured it was probably the perfect time to give Mies a shot.

After hearing about how Boogie Burger is the best burger in Daegu for several months now, I finally had the chance to stop for lunch with DumbTwo the other day. So is Boogie Burger all it's cracked up to be? Yes. Yes, it is.
