Korean food and culture festival in Pittsburgh, May 5th.

The Korean Central Church of Pittsburgh (피츠버그한인중앙교회) will host its annual Korean food bazaar on May 5th from 10:30 to 4:00pm. As the advertisement says, the menu will include bulgogi, naengmyeon, kimbap, kimchi, pajeon, yukgaejang, and other well-known Korean items. It might be your only chance to try kimbap for under $10 in Pittsburgh.

The church is at 821 S. Aiken Avenue in Shadyside, a block south of Walnut Street, the trendy shopping district in the neighborhood. The Korean festival will coincide with the annual "Walk on Walnut", benefiting local victims of domestic violence, and running May 4th through 6th.
