Shin Chon Garden got a big time visitor tonight from the Food Channel when Andrew Zimmern and a crew from Bizarre Foods showed up to eat and film.
In a comment, Recent NoVa Transplant reported stumbling on Zimmern's crew while trying to go out to dinner. Plus, Zimmern has been tweeting about Shin Chon with photos and the statement: "Shin Chon in Ellicott City Maryland is one of top ten Korean BBQ experiences in America. A must for anyone who loves food. Major discovery" (Seriously, this is the tweet. Look through his tweets for the photos -- like this. He filmed in Lotte as well.)
Oh, dear. I'm trying to plan dinner at Shin Chon, and Zimmern has 386,499 followers on Twitter. That's going to fill up the barbecue tables.
Seriously, I'm a huge fan of Shin Chon -- and I'll emphasize that it isn't really bizarre food. I mean Zimmern may have eaten bizarre stuff, but you can eat really well and enjoy everything even if it's your first Korean meal. Try my "Korean 101" suggestions. Or all my Shin Chon posts.
The crew told Recent NoVa Transplant that the Shin Chon episode won't air until January or February.
