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.


Philippines’ Michael Martinez Could Have Been A Second Shirtless Flag Bearer At Winter Olympics

4951732F-4EAA-4B99-A2F2-CD8F8C376F1F.jpegPYEONGCHANG, South Korea (The Adobo Chronicles, Seoul Bureau) – All eyes were on Pita Taufatofua, Tonga’s flag bearer at the opening ceremonies of the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang.  Once again, he marched shirtless and oiled as he waved his country’s red and white flag.

But Taufatofua could have met his match in the person of Michael Martinez, one of the Philippines’ two Olympians.

Alpine Skier Asa Miller carried the Philippine flag. But The Adobo Chronicles learned that figure skater Martinez wanted to go shirtless and oiled as the flag bearer to show his amazing body transformation since competing in the last Olympics.

Alas, the Philippine Olympic Committee had already named Miller as the flag bearer before Martinez came up with the proposal.

Well, maybe in 2022?
