Jajangmyun in Albuquerque?

Does anyone know of a place in Albuquerque where they can make jajangmyun on request? With the vinegary onions and everything?

Help me save this failed Korean(ish) soup?

I guess by "unsatisfying" I mean that the soup is really lacking in flavor -- just really bland -- so it tastes basically like greasy water. Salting it just turns it into salty grease water. And the oyster mushrooms are just mushy.

I'll follow your advice -- I wonder if removing the mushrooms (and maybe the oxtails?) and stir frying those would firm them up? Thanks!

Help me save this failed Korean(ish) soup?

I made a Korean-style seaweed soup last night that's just really unsatisfying. I made it pretty simply, with some seaweed, onions, garlic, soy sauce, sesame oil, oyster mushrooms, and cubed daikon radish. The problem is, I threw in a few oxtails for the heck of it, and that's made the soup too greasy. I guess I can chill it and scoop off the fat, but the soup is still just really unsatisfying.

Is there any way I can rescue this dish, or repurpose it into something different? Thanks for any suggestions.

What is "deep-skinned tilapia"?

I see references to "deep-skinned" or "deep skin" tilapia, and I haven't had much luck finding out what this means or what differentiates it from regular ol' tilapia. Can anyone illuminate me?
