Let Me Introduce You To "Asian Fit" Glasses

Refinery29 | Posted 07.28.2016 | Style

Some people dread swimsuit shopping. Others consider the process of finding jeans that fit as enjoyable as a colonoscopy. For me, I've never not ended a session of eyeglasses shopping without choking back rage tears at the optometrist's. And, as someone who's needed glasses since the second grade (my vision finally plateaued at -7.5 in middle school), I've had a lifetime of anguish to come to the conclusion that I have a deformed head.

Michelle Won

In an effort to make up for some small fraction of recent diet of eating like a recently released convict, I decided to make one of my favorite Korean dishes, but without any guilt. Jjajangmyeon is a black bean sauce noodle that is salty and savory. It's usually made with pork belly and hand-pulled, hand-cut noodles. Sure, if you can afford the calories, go get the real thing.

Outside of North Korea, it's next to impossible to try a sampling of Pyongyang's culinary classics, unless you're in Vietnam of course. Vietnam has everything these days. With all the political issues surrounding North Korea, nobody really talks about their cuisine. But the question remains, is it good? I went to find out.

I know that being Asian is more than being able to speak a language and more than outward appearance. While I've never been proud of it, I know my loss of language is just another narrative in the Great Asian-American Story, and that it's not a narrative exclusive to just me.
