Hey everyone,
Haven't posted much in the last year, been working like crazy. It's paid off, I got promoted and shipped off to Washington where I got the Exec Chef/GM job at the Intel campus in DuPont (a little south of Tacoma for those who aren't familiar, exit 119). Anyway, just wanted to say it's been fun getting to talk shop with all of you (and meeting a few of you in person). Hoping to still get back to PDX every now and then with a little more cash in my pocket to try some of these great new places popping up. Take care and keep eating!

Doug aka Joisey

Congras! Let us know when you'll be back in PDX, I love to hear about your adventure at Intel. I used to work there, and I was always envious about Synopsys's Cafeteria since they have Sushi option.

Lakewood, which is very close, and Federal Way, which isn't far, have the highest concentrations of Korean restaurants in the NW.

Doug, best of luck to you. Sorry, we never got to meet but I have enjoyed our messages and emails. I hope someday you do get that restaurant of your own.

Good luck and take care!

Eating is not merely a material pleasure. Eating well gives a spectacular joy to life
and contributes immensely to goodwill and happy companionship.
It is of great importance to the morale.

...and back!

Working in the same place I was at before I moved, got a raise and lost my knife callus (Chef to GM). Good to be back in civilization.

So what did I miss?
