There Is No P.F. Chang’s In PyeongChang

EE80A055-523B-4460-88FF-48F57B651E19PYEONGCHANG, South Korea (The Adobo Chronicles, Seoul Bureau) – Hundreds of hungry athletes and visitors to the Winter Olympics have been contacting The Adobo Chronicles asking where in PyeongChang they can find a P.F. Chang’s.

The calls started coming in after ABC News aired a segment titled P.F. Chang 2018.  Little did viewers realize it was a satirical piece on the Winter Olympics.

P.F. Chang’s is an Asian restaurant concept founded on making food from scratch every day in every restaurant. Created in 1993 by Philip Chiang and Paul Fleming, P.F. Chang’s is the first multi-unit restaurant concept in the U.S. to honor and celebrate the 2,000-year-old tradition of wok cooking as the center of the guest experience. Since inception, P.F. Chang’s chefs have been hand-rolling dim sum, hand chopping and slicing all vegetables and meats, scratch cooking every sauce and wok-cooking each dish, every day in every restaurant. P.F. Chang’s new Farm to Wok® menu highlights its wholesome, scratch-cooking approach and introduces new dishes and drinks for lunch, happy hour and dinner. Today, P.F. Chang’s has 210+ U.S. restaurants, including airport locations, plus 66 international locations in more than 19 countries across the globe.

Unfortunately, there is no P.F. Chang’s in PyeongChang.

But here’s good news.

There are several P.F. Chang’s locations in South Korea, if you’re willing to make that extra trip out of PyeongChang.



Trump To Pardon 4 Million Turkeys This Thanksgiving

01438A62-E9DD-4136-88B3-4B93F8FFB569WASHINGTON D.C. (The Adobo Chronicles, Washington Bureau) – Each year, tbe President of the United States pardons a pair of turkeys, saving them them from ever being butchered and served for the American Thanksgiving Dinner.

Each year, some 46 million turkeys are killed.

Donald Trump is changing this presidential tradition. In addition to pardoning Wishbone and Drumstick (pictured), he has also signed an executive order pardoning an additional 4 million turkeys.

’Pardoning 2 turkeys won’t make any impact, so I’m going for 4 million instead. That’s about ten percent of all turkeys killed each year in America,’ Trump told The Adobo Chronicles.


San Francisco Activists Want To Ban Thanksgiving Dinners


SAN FRANCISCO, California (The Adobo Chronicles, San Francisco Bureau) – At about this time of year, the President of the United States pardons a couple of turkeys and saves them from being butchered for the traditional Thanksgiving dinner.

But leave it to San Francisco activists to do much, much more. They want to totally ban Thanksgiving dinners that feature turkeys and ham.

In a protest action at San Francisco’s Westfield Mall (of course, at the food court), the activists declared that turkeys (and pigs) are  not food.  “Eating them is violence,” they said.

But how about the other living creatures like chicken, cows and fish? Or flies and roaches? They, too, have rights.
