It makes for some terrific Korean food:

|Korean sushi roll|
|It looks like a pasta dish? What do I know?|
|A lovely Korean meal - haven't a clue what it all is|

I'd expected him to have to think about it... seriously! I think our food is great, and NORMAL - but he immediately replied, "Hamburger".
"Hamburgers?" I questioned, thoroughly mystified.
He grinned, then went on to explain that he still didn't care for hamburgers of any kind, although his thoroughly Americanized teenage children loved them. When I asked what it was about a hamburger that he found disgusting, he answered, "I don't know. It just not good." He wrinkled his nose for effect.
It appears that not all Chinese folks feel that way. Or maybe they just make them for the tourists, what do I know?
But I was also rather comforted to know I wasn't being mean or impolite for not enjoying all that Chinese cuisine had to offer. Just like Mike, there are a few things I simply can't stomach. Nothing personal!

According to Daniel, you can find a wide variety of foods at the Yanji grocery store. He got a real kick out of visiting there. It sure looks busy.
I'm so happy to be able to learn more about this corner of the world. Thanks again, Daniel!
