On this week's Simpsons, Marge and the kids end up in an Ethiopian restaurant* after their car breaks down, and though skeptical, they love the food and, after meeting foodies, become food bloggers themselves. The foodies don't come off too well:
Foodie 1: "We discovered Korean barbeque in this town."
Lisa: "Uhhh... before the Koreans?"
Foodie 2: "Oh sure, they cook it, but they don't get it."
Of course, the Simpsons has taken on hipsters for a couple decades now, and that conversation pales in comparison to (and takes as a blueprint):
[Sarcastically] "That's cool."
"Are you being sarcastic?"
"I don't even know anymore."
It also pales in comparison to this evisceration of foodies (the responses are just as much fun).
At any rate, they end up hitting all kinds of restaurants, and make a trip to "K-town":
There's quite a bit of detail - comics, noraebang, video, pharmacy, galbi and even a golf place:
(Not being American, I knew nothing about Pinkberry)
One more step in the globalization of bibimbap and bulgogi, I guess....
*I've never come across an Ethiopian restaurant in Seoul. Has anyone ever seen/ been to one?
