Discount mulberry selfridges Outlet Kroger closings causing growing concern about food deserts in the

PEORIA IL The search for solutions to Peoria food desert issue continues.

With two Kroger stores closing on the city south side and East Bluff, low income neighborhoods could become food deserts for those that can get around.

Local community leaders are working to address the situation. Multiple meetings were held throughout Peoria in order to get input and bounce ideas off of people living in those commuities.

Members of the comunity filled the Manual High School library Saturday, to explore ways to prevent a possible food desert.

“Everyone that can do something, they showing up saying they willing. Even the residents are saying they volunteer for something like a Co op, or to work with a community garden and food distribution,” said one leader.

Some residents are concerned the meetings aren moving quick enough for the people who are in real risk of not being able to get fresh food.

A growing concern when the Kroger stores close is that there may not be a grocery store south of Forest Hill.

Many ideas were brought forward. Some suggested that with the large amount of local churches, they could help with transporting the elderly to stores. But there is still a strong hope that there will be a new source of fresh fruits and vegetables in the neighborhoods in need.

mulberry factory outlet shop online Kris Kobach running for Kansas governor

Cancer CareA Kansas official who helping lead President Donald Trump commission on election fraud announced Thursday that he running for the Republican nomination for governor.Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach gained a national reputation for championing tough voter identification laws and helping to draft state and local laws aimed at cracking down on illegal immigration. He jumping into the 2018 governor race only two days after Kansas legislators enacted a law rolling back past income tax cuts championed by Republican Gov. Sam Brownback over Brownback veto. Kobach criticized the Legislature move.”Our people deserve so much better than what happening in Topeka right now,” Kobach said Thursday in a speech kicking off his campaign. “We going in the wrong direction.”Kobach opened his campaign at a barn converted into an events center in the Kansas City suburbs of Johnson County, the state most populous county and home to about 22 percent of all Kansas voters. It crucial, vote rich territory for any candidate for governor, and Kobach has a strong base there, though he now lives on a farm outside Lawrence, about 30 miles west. Justice Department official and former Kansas Republican Party chairman. He has advised Trump for months, first on immigration, then on election fraud issues.Before pursuing voter ID laws, Kobach was best known for helping to draft tough laws against illegal immigration, including Arizona “show your papers” law in 2010.Trump named Kobach vice chairman of the election fraud commission, with Vice President Mike Pence as chairman. The voter ID laws in Kansas that Kobach advocated have sparked multiple lawsuits from such groups as the American Civil Liberties Union.”By nominating Kris Kobach for governor, the Republican Party would continue to endorse the failures of Sam Brownback,” Kansas Democratic Party Chairman John Gibson said in an email statement after Kobach announcement. “Whoever our colleagues on the other side of the aisle choose as their standard bearer,

we look forward to a vigorous debate about the direction of our state.”Brownback is term limited, and there has been speculation that he resign by the fall to take an ambassador position in the Trump administration, automatically elevating Lt. Gov. Jeff Colyer to governor. Colyer is considered a potential Republican candidate regardless, but Kobach brings a base of ardent conservative supporters into the race.The contest could become crowded. A Wichita oil company owner, Wink Hartman, has been campaigning for the Republican nomination since February, and former state Rep. Ed O CEO of the Kansas Leadership Center in Wichita, is exploring the GOP race. On the Democratic side, former Wichita Mayor Carl Brewer and former state Agriculture Secretary Joshua Svaty have announced they running, though the GOP wields a major electoral advantage in the state.Kobach has never been shy about weighing in on issues outside the formal bounds of the secretary of state office.He recently been commenting on the Legislature debate about raising taxes to fix the state budget and provide extra money for public schools. Many voters soured last year on the tax cutting Brownback experiment initiated in 2012 and elected more Democrats and GOP moderates to the Legislature setting the stage for this week rollback.In a tweet, Kobach labeled as “obscene” the tax increase approved by lawmakers, $1.2 billion over two years.”It is time to drain the swamp in Topeka,” Kobach tweeted Wednesday morning, after Brownback veto was overridden,

Discount mulberry bag sale outlet uk Outlet Kremlin critic Alexey Navalny barred from entering presidential race

Discount mulberry alexa bag look alike Outlet Kremlin critic Alexey Navalny barred from entering presidential race

MOSCOW (CNN) Russian officials barred activist Alexey Navalny from entering the country’s presidential race a day after he held nomination gatherings to kick off his run, according to state run media outlet RIA Novosti.

Russia’s Central Election Commission (CEC) rejected Navalny’s registration the day after he submitted it, citing a previous embezzlement conviction, RIA Novosti reported.

“Firstly, a citizen who has been sentenced to imprisonment for committing a grave or especially grave crime and who has an outstanding conviction for the said crime, has no right to be elected president of the Russian federation,” said CEC member Boris Ebzeev.

The decision was not a surprise. Navalny’s candidacy was unlikely because Russian law prevents convicted criminals from running for public office, though Navalny and his supporters have said his conviction was politically motivated to block his presidential bid.

Navalny will appeal the commission’s decision, his campaign press secretary Ruslan Shaveddinov told CNN late Monday.

Navalny would be running against incumbent President Vladimir Putin, who announced his intention to seek re election his fourth presidential bid as an independent candidate at his annual press conference earlier this month.

At the time, he said his aim was for Russia to have a “competitive” and “balanced” political system, but it wasn’t his responsibility to create political opponents.

“I want this,” Putin said, “and I will strive for a balanced political system and that is impossible without competition in the political field.”

Putin has been either the Prime Minister or President of Russia since 1999.

In response to a question about why Russia lacked effective opposition leaders, Putin said most of the current opposition figures were more focused on “making noise” instead of a genuine agenda that could benefit the country.

Navalny called for a boycott of the March 2018 election in response to the CEC’s decision.

“We are announcing a voters’ strike,” Navalny said. “The procedure in which we are invited to participate is not an election. It involves only Putin and those candidates whom he personally chose,
Discount mulberry bag sale outlet uk Outlet Kremlin critic Alexey Navalny barred from entering presidential race
who do not pose a slightest threat to him.”

The opposition activist is widely popular among young people and has tapped into anger over a sluggish economy and endemic corruption. Navalny first rose to prominence during 2011’s large scale anti government protests.

Expert: Putin will ‘almost without a doubt’ win electionJill Dougherty, a Russia expert and former CNN Moscow bureau chief, said Navalny still has a role to play in the presidential race, though it probably won’t be as a candidate.

“I think he will be a factor,” she said, “but he will not be an organized participant in any electoral process. He will be kept on the outside and he is definitely opposition, so he’s used to being kept on the outside.”

But Navalny’s support among young Russians could also play a factor in the election.

“A lot of the people who support him are very young, like 19 or 20 years old sometimes even younger,” Dougherty said, and they have been exposed to the rest of the world and the way the rest of the world lives, and they are dissatisfied.

“Their dissatisfaction, although not very focused at this point, is a factor the Kremlin is worried about,” she said. “The Kremlin is very focused on the youth and making sure that young people support Putin.”

Dougherty also pointed to Ksenia Sobchak a Russian socialite and reality TV star who has said she wants to challenge Putin as someone who could offer a liberal alternative to Putin if Navalny can’t run. But Navalny’s supporters wouldn’t necessarily support her, she said.

“Putin will almost without a doubt win the election,” Dougherty said,
Discount mulberry bag sale outlet uk Outlet Kremlin critic Alexey Navalny barred from entering presidential race
“because he is supported by the majority of Russians and because the system is organized . to favor his candidacy.”

mulberry outlet shops Kraft Heinz headquarters to move to Chicago

daria mulberry bag Kraft Heinz headquarters to move to Chicago

Kraft Heinz will move one of its headquarters from north suburban Northfield to downtown Chicago early next year, making it the latest company to march from the ‘burbs to the bright lights and big city in hopes of attracting diverse young workers.

The long term lease, which begins Jan. 1, sends a strong signal to Chicago that Kraft Heinz is committed to keeping a major piece of its operations in the area. Kraft began selling cheese to local merchants in 1903. Heinz acquired Kraft Foods this year, the company said it planned to locate in the Chicago area and Pittsburgh.

In moving to the city, Kraft Heinz follows companies like Hillshire Brands, Walgreens, AT Mead Johnson and Aon all of which have set up shop or moved their headquarters downtown in recent years. The Kraft Heinz statement on Thursday included a familiar corporate call to establish a “dynamic new culture, based on meritocracy, speed, efficiency and collaboration, in a new downtown Chicago open office space.”

Such language trumpets a commitment that Kraft Heinz is going after employees who are “young, highly qualified and desiring of a more cosmopolitan lifestyle,” said Willemien Kets, professor of managerial economics and decision sciences at Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management.

“There’s something deeper going on here, too,” Kets said. “By moving downtown, they’re sending a message: ‘We have similar values as you.’ If a company has an office downtown, I know it’s going to attract a certain kind of worker, a certain kind of manager and be infused with a certain kind of identity to where I know I can fit in.”

The company’s Chicago headquarters will be at Aon Center, where it will occupy 170,000 square feet over five floors at the city’s third tallest building; its other headquarters will remain in Pittsburgh. Aon, which has had its name on the 200 E. Randolph St. building since late 1999, remains its largest tenant with about 420,000 square feet.

A 30 to 40 minute drive in good traffic. That’s the nearly 30 miles south on I 90 from Northfield to Chicago, a symbolic journey of Kraft Heinz’s announcement to move one of its headquarters from the suburbs to the city. The iconic mac and cheese maker is part of a trend which has accelerated.

Kraft Heinz spokesman Michael Mullen said Kraft Heinz was approached by other municipalities in the Chicago area, which he declined to name, but said the company was interested in downtown Chicago.

No incentives were involved, said Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel.

Still, Emanuel said he did call Kraft Heinz CEO Bernardo Hees to make the case for a downtown move. “I even called Warren Buffett to help,” Emanuel said Thursday, quickly adding that the billionaire investor and leader of Berkshire Hathaway said he would leave the process to Hees and the other executives.

“When CEOs and their companies are looking down the road five, 10 years, where they want to be, Chicago has all the world class strengths,” Emanuel said, citing everything from airports and the CTA to theater, restaurants, hotels and parks. “That’s where you want to build your company.”

Paul Reaumond, a senior vice president at CBRE, said he started to see employer interest in downtown Chicago really heat up around 2010, as the economy perked up after the recession.

“The trend is definitely downtown, without question,” said Reaumond, who has helped companies like in flight Wi Fi provider GoGo relocate to downtown office space. “The goal is to be able to attract the younger workforce. It’s a shift in trends in how people work and urbanization.”

Millennials those born between 1981 and 1997 will represent the majority of the workforce by 2022 and they are drawn to the more varied cultural offerings of a city, said Grace Lemmon, an assistant professor of management at DePaul University’s Driehaus College of Business.

“In the city, you have many more opportunities to explore things that interest you in your life,” Lemmon said.

But moving downtown isn’t just about attracting young people, she said. There’s also benefit to working in a more urban setting surrounded by people in other industries and such intermingling can inspire innovation. In addition, a larger talent pool gives a company the opportunity to recruit a more diverse workforce, she said.

Kraft Heinz’s lease at Aon will last 121/2 years, on floors 72 through 76 of the 83 story tower.

Mullen said the company does not know how many of the 2,000 employees in Northfield will make the move to downtown Chicago. The company has not begun the design process for the five floor space, which will have an open office plan, Mullen said.

“We believe in a completely open office environment,” Mullen said. “That’s part of the culture.”

The company’s Pittsburgh space was converted to a more open floor plan nearly two years ago, after the ketchup maker was acquired by Brazilian investment firm 3G Capital and Berkshire Hathaway. There are 900 employees in the Pittsburgh office, Heinz’s headquarters before the merger, Mullen said.

Other companies with relatively new downtown Chicago offices are tacking on urban space to reap some of the same benefits. McDonald’s opened a digital office in the River North neighborhood earlier this year to complement its sprawling complex in Oak Brook and its first dedicated digital office in San Francisco. When Walgreens moved hundreds of its workers from its Deerfield headquarters to downtown in 2012, the idea was to attract tech savvy workers more qualified for its e commerce jobs, said spokesman Michael Polzin.

One of the biggest relocations in the past few years occurred when the food maker previously known as Sara Lee moved its headquarters from Downers Grove to the West Loop. That company, which was rebranding itself as Hillshire, still occupies that renovated space at 400 S. Jefferson St., even though it was acquired by Arkansas based Tyson Foods in August.

Still, CBRE’s Reaumond noted that for some companies, like pharmaceutical makers, the suburbs still make the most sense.

“There are certain users that regardless of what the trends are, the lower cost of occupancy and who their demographic of employees are, they’re going to stay in the suburbs,” Reaumond said.

In a message sent to Northfield residents, village President Fred Gougler said Northfield will work with Kraft Heinz to assess options for the site, which “remains a highly desirable location given its proximity to transportation, superb schools and those amenities which have contributed to the exceptional work/life balance that many employees enjoyed.” Kraft paid $2.7 million in local property taxes last year, he said.

Kraft Heinz will seek a company to sublease the Northfield space, which totals 700,000 square feet including open spaces such as atriums. It also will close the two floor flexible work space at 401 N. Michigan Ave. it opened last year and seek a company to take over that lease. Seven years remain on each of those leases.

Kraft Heinz has not announced any major layoffs as part of the deal, though it has said that some executives, including Kraft’s chief financial officer, are leaving the company. The combined company has plans to cut $1.5 billion in annual costs by the end of 2017. At Heinz, more than 7,000 jobs about 20 percent of the workforce were eliminated in the 18 months after it was acquired in 2013.

Kraft undertook major renovations to its Northfield space in recent years after its split from Mondelez International. The former CEO’s wood paneled office was torn out and replaced with an updated lounge, complete with a flat screen television and a handful of massage chairs. The sprawling space also features large common areas that include booths where people can connect devices and plug in while they take a break or hold informal meetings.

mulberry bucket bag Koreatown packs a lot of gems into its vibrant 2

Los Angeles, of course, is lucky enough to have the largest Korean community outside the motherland and a concentration of restaurants that pick up trends sometimes just months after they have hit Seoul. Koreatown isn’t just a Korean neighborhood with its markets, nightclubs, towers, billiard parlors and food obsessive mini malls, it sometimes seems as if it is a distant prefecture of Seoul that just happens to be extra rich in Salvadorans and Oaxacans; a place that honors not just the emigrs who started arriving in California in the late 1970s but also their children Chloe Kim! who have invented a brand new way to be American.

Sometimes I think A Won should be better regarded for its seafood tangs boiling, frothing, chile smacked soups served in red hot communal pots. Al tang, thick with mushrooms, herbs and chewy sacs of cod roe, is especially good. But it is hard to get out of there without ordering al bap, a hearty Korean equivalent of Japanese chirashi: a bowl of seasoned rice striped with different kinds of roe, a bit of omelet, and even a bit of barbecued eel. The Korean sashimi isn’t bad, either it’s bigger than the Japanese kind, and you can dose it with bean paste and raw garlic if you want. But the restaurant’s famous specialty is hwe dup bap, slivers of raw fish that you toss at the table with greens, vegetables, pickles and hot rice, tinting it as red as you dare with chile paste that you squirt out of a repurposed ketchup bottle.

If you asked a CGI guy to reinvent tofu, it would probably look a lot like soondubu, a heaving mass that spits like a lake of volcanic lava and broadcasts a fine, gory mist of chile and broth. The soondubu cult has spread pretty far in the Los Angeles area, and if you look hard enough you can probably find a cauldron of the seething bean curd within a few minutes of your home. But the local soondubu masters have been preparing the dish at Beverly Soon Tofu for something like 32 years, and the barely gelled blocks of pure, subtle tofu, which you can order spicy or nonspicy, are still unsurpassed. I like the version with clams.

Koreatown has rarely been noted for its serenity, but on the right afternoon, when you’re slumped into the kind of low padded chairs that resemble artifacts from a bank lobby circa 1983, Bon Juk, the local outlet of a popular Seoul based porridge specialist, can seem soothingly bland. The walls are dominated by huge photographs of the various kinds of porridge on offer, along with descriptions of their nutritive virtues the porridge with smoked salmon comes off almost as a Korean version of a Scottish kedgeree, and the deluxe jeonbokjuk is spiked with an impressive quantity of chewy abalone shards. The pumpkin porridge with glutinous rice dumplings is sweet, gentle and utterly calming. Are you going to get the spicy porridge with octopus and kimchi instead? I don’t blame you.

3551 Wilshire Blvd., Los Angeles

It is not difficult to find samgyetang in Koreatown restaurants. The brothy, whole game hen, stuffed with sticky rice, jujubes and gnarled fingers of fresh ginseng, is one of the most restorative dishes in a culture dedicated to restorative cuisine it’s like delicatessen chicken soup times 10. But the best samgyetang in Koreatown is probably at this cramped mini mall specialist. When you sprinkle a bit of gray sea salt into the bland soup, the flavors bloom as if by magic: pockets of pureed garlic infusing the rice, plumes of sweetness trickling from the dried fruit, and a lovely chickeny aroma erupting from the bird’s soft flesh. For an extra couple of bucks, you can substitute shaved deer antler for the ginseng, but I’ve never felt the need.

Budae jjigae can seem a bit like an urban legend when you first hear about it, a spicy Korean soup thick with hot dogs, Spam and packaged ramen noodles, ingredients originally cadged from American military bases around Seoul. It is sometimes called military stew, sometimes Johnson tang, in honor of President Johnson. I should probably emphasize that Chunju Han il Kwan is a nice place, with an elegant array of banchan, small plates, served before the meal, a large repertory of traditional soups and stews, tons of seafood and crisp, lacy potato pancakes. It serves proper Korean food. But what draws the crowds on weekends is undoubtedly the level 10 budae jjigae, kimchi, rice cakes and fresh chrysanthemum leaves crowding the processed meats and what you eat is both delicious and unmistakably Korean, another example of the culture’s genius at finding the beauty in unpromising ingredients.

If you spend a lot of time watching old Asian movies, Dan Sung Sa may be the kind of place you thought had disappeared half a century ago dim, wooden and loud, lined with walled, graffiti splattered booths, centered on cooks who crouch over guttering flames. It wasn’t until the owners built a website that most non Koreans learned that the restaurant was an interpretation of a pojangmacha, the orange tented street pubs quickly disappearing from Seoul, designed to resemble an old Korean movie theater. You hadn’t needed a menu to realize that the restaurant was built around the cheerful consumption of soju; grilled skewers holding meat, seafood or the seaweed laminated dough vermicelli constructions everyone called “dumbbells”; and bar food like sauteed octopus, kimchi pancakes and barbecued pork ribs. The cabbage soup, which comes with your first drink, is served in a metal bowl so battered you might wonder whether somebody worked it over with a baseball bat.

Dong Il Jang is pretty old school even for Koreatown, a vestige of the time before the scene was dominated by barbecue restaurants the dark interior may remind you of old steakhouses like Taylor’s. And while there is plenty of barbecue to go around here, almost everybody orders the roast gui instead beautiful sliced rib eye seared in butter on a huge tabletop pan. Snatch a piece from the hot iron before the juices cook out, season it with a bit of sesame oil and salt, and chase it with an icy shot of soju: perfect. Dong Il Jang’s version of the Korean steak tartare called yuk hwe, slivered raw beef tossed with sesame oil and slivers of Asian pear, is often considered the best in K town.

Has Eight stopped advertising grilled pork belly as health food? If so, I don’t really want to know. Because it always put a little jump in my step, imagining that the set menu of eight seasoned pork belly slabs was toning my body in eight different ways, the ginseng pork belly toning metabolism before the garlic pork belly got around to the cholesterol, the curry flavored pork belly preventing Alzheimer’s before the bright green herbed pork belly went to work easing depression. It’s like statins,

beta blockers and Prozac all in one, administered in the form of tabletop grilled pork belly. Could you ask for more persuasive evidence of a loving God?

Soondae, blood sausage, is one of the most popular Korean dishes in Los Angeles as well as in Seoul thin casings stuffed with oxblood and transparent threads of rice vermicelli, then boiled in an organ rich soup, fried crisp or sauteed with vegetables and heaps of spicy bean paste. It’s oddly genteel stuff, soondae, neither as funky nor as goopy as you might fear. And at the lovely Eighth Street Soondae, one of the oldest of Koreatown’s many soondae parlors, it is the stuff of shirtsleeve business lunches. The house combination plate includes crunchy fried soondae, sliced pig’s ear and a heap of boiled pork intestines, evoking the Korean equivalent of a Lyonnaise bouchon.

The only American branch of a small Seoul based chain uses only prime beef. It charges prices not much less than what you might expect to pay in a splashy American steakhouse. And it is devoted to the cult of bulgogi, which has a reputation as the poor relation of Korean barbecue world, the one dish nobody is happy to see on the table at a cheap all you can eat KBBQ joint. Yet the crisp kimchi pancakes are served on an arrangement of fresh ggaenip leaves, the pungent herb at the heart of Korean cuisine. The yuk hwe is luxuriant and soft. The barbecued skirt steak, rib steak and the kkot sal, richly marbled “flower beef,” are tasty. And the Gangnam style bulgogi is splendid: big, garlicky sheets of beef that crumple and soften on the tabletop grill, scented with smoke, sesame and pear, dissolving like ice cream on your tongue.

Is Ham Hung a North Korean restaurant? Sort of, I guess, in that it’s named after North Korea’s second largest city. And its best dish is also of North Korean origin bibim naengmyeon, chewy cold buckwheat noodles tossed with spicy gochujang, slivered vegetables and extra chewy bits of raw skate, whose slightly weird taste is just right. In its former location, Ham Hung was one of the grand restaurants of Koreatown. In its current strip mall location, it’s a noodle shop with attitude. You wouldn’t be wrong if you decided to get a plate of sweet grilled short ribs on the side.

Some people think that Ham Ji Park’s spicy gamjatang, brick red pork neck and potato soup, may be the single best hangover cure in an area dense in hangover cures. The chowder thick brew certainly feels soothing. There are a lot of other gamjatang specialists in Koreatown, but the density, the soft meat and the piney snap of the version at the original Pico Boulevard Ham Ji Park always strikes me as the most pleasant ranking even a tick or so above the soup at the restaurant’s 6th Street branch. The restaurant’s other great dish is pork ribs beautifully caramelized and not too sweet, a massive pile to be snipped into edible mouthfuls at the table with a pair of scissors. An order of each, supplemented with beer and soju, is more than enough food for four or five.

Sullungtang is a peculiar specialty for a restaurant, basically beef bones boiled for days until the liquid turns pearly gray and the aroma is more of minerals than meat. It’s bone broth in its most intense form, yet as soothing as a glass of milk. It may take on presence only after you stir in green onion tops and a smidge more salt than you may think it needs. A lot of places in Los Angeles do sullungtang. At Han Bat, it is the only thing on the menu, ready to be supplemented with flank, brisket or a variety pack of cattle organs. Some people consider it vulgar to flavor the soup with the house chile paste, but we promise not to tell.

The longest lines in the restaurant strip mall on 6th at Alexandria are for Dan Sung Sa its spicy galbijjim is a pure adrenaline rush. But the second longest are for the thick, hand cut noodles at Hangari. At noon and in the early evening, the waits for both places are about the same, which can lead to 45 minutes of pure FOMO, flitting back and forth between the sign in sheets, unwilling to commit to one pleasure or another. And then your name is called at Hangari, and you settle into an enormous bowl of those noodles in anchovy scented broth, lavishly paved with tiny manila clams, spiked with well aged kimchi (if you’ve asked for it), a long simmered umami bomb. I’m still not sure why a tiny bowl of dressed, cooked barley is brought out before the noodles an extra dose of starch? but the chewy grains are nutty and delicious.

The sedate tearoom may be the only calm bit of real estate in Koreatown on a busy afternoon, a place to sit at low tables, listen to traditional Korean music and linger over an aged green tea. The menu of sweets is limited but includes Koreatown’s definitive pat bing su, a restrained dessert of shaved ice and sweet beans that somehow evolved elsewhere into monstrous concoctions containing canned fruit cocktail, whipped cream and showers of Fruity Pebbles. Hwa Sun Ji’s idea of crazy fun is su jung hwa, a cold, sweet punch flavored with cinnamon and dried persimmon, garnished with a single pine nut.

Dinner at a shellfish grill is one of the most enduring rituals in Koreatown. A waitress scatters clams on a wire grill; you pluck them the moment they pop open. Tiny scallops on the half shell seethe in butter. Surf clam shells sizzle. Huge oysters steam in their shells. Prawns blacken. Snails simmer in vessels fashioned from aluminum foil. Sweet potatoes roast in the embers. You dip everything in gochujang, melted butter or both. If you pay a little extra, hagfish, an ancient precursor to the eel, will be set to writhing on the grill too. It’s as easy as specifying an A, B or C dinner.

When you visit the city of Jeonju, you will probably notice that many of the streets are lined with restaurants serving tossed rice salad, the region’s great gift to cuisine. So it is no surprise that the Koreatown restaurant Jeon Ju serves practically nothing but bibimbap a minimalist concoction of rice, mountain vegetables, an egg and oddly delicious bean sprouts (plus meat if you want it) tossed with a big spoonful of the fermented chile bean paste gochujang. Jeon Ju’s bibimbap is as deep and complex as a dram of old Scotch. Try the dolsot version made in a superheated stone vessel. There will be a subtly smoky flavor and a delicious, crunchy crust, like Korean tahdig, to nibble on toward the end of the meal.

2716 W. In its new location, tucked next to a Uygher barbecue in a crowded strip mall, it is merely obscure, although that doesn’t seem to stop the crowds piling in at dinnertime for the pan fried mackerel, marinated raw crab or spicy sauteed octopus, served with some of the most varied and freshest banchan in town. The bossam, a platter of sliced boiled pork belly served with fermented tiny fish and leaves and pickles to wrap it in, is perhaps a bit less elaborate than what you find at Kobawoo or Jang Teo, but is worth trying anyway get it with fresh oysters to tuck in with the pork. And it would be a crime to visit without an order of chefly black cod steamed with thick slices of radish, which is one of the best dishes in Koreatown.

DONGHAE, South Korea A shipload of North Korean musicians, singers and dancers has arrived in South Korea to perform at the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics.

The arrival of the Mangyongbong 92 cruise ship was met by hordes of reporters and cameramen and a small but boisterous protest by a group of South Koreans who oppose the last minute agreement allowing North Korea to join in the games, which open on Friday.

The ship carried members of the Samjiyon Band, an orchestra with vocalists and dancers that is headed by one of North Korea best known singers,
