Food Diary 10 : Dinner at traditional Korean restaurant
Few days ago, One of my friends from work invited me and my boyfriend to her choir performance at church. It was such a beautiful harmony of voices. Although the songs were in Korean, my boyfriend didn’t mind. Even he liked the performance more than I did
Before it stared, we got a ticket with number on it for raffle draw. Near the end of the night, they drew the raffle. There were five prizes to be won. They picked one number… two… three… still not my number…four… and last one, it was my number ‘30‘ “Oh Amen!!” I got $50 voucher of Korean restaurant which was the most valuable prize. Yay!
We couldn’t wait long to use the voucher. I’m already here at the traditional Korean style restaurant.
Can you see the long pipe from the ceiling? When my boyfriend Andrew saw that for the first time, he was very curious what it’s for. So I explained “This is the way how Korean serves food. If you order food through the hole, the food will come out from the pipe ” He looked at me doubtfully haha
The truth is, you pull the pipe close to the grill and it absobs the smoke and smell from grill. Not for serving food
We kept thinking what we order for a long time, and finally ordered two type of meat(Beef rib, pork shoulder) for BBQ and two main meals(Bibimbap, Bibim naengmyun).
First, Waitress put bunt charcoal under our grill. Time to eat!
Oh my god… the taste was heavenly awesome! Our chopstics moved so fast and nobody talked.
When we almost finished our BBQ, we got our main meals. It was like full-course meal. Non-stop!
This is Bibim Naengmyun which is my favorite summer dish. It contains some crushed ice on the bottom so it keep the noodles cold. The sauce is little bit spicy and pickled radish adds more sourness to the dish.
This is Dolsot Bibimbap , Andrew‘s favorite Korean dish. Original bibimbap is served in a normal bowl. But this is more special. It’s served in a very hot Stone bowl. So while you’re eating, your food doesn’t cool down. Even you can hear the sound of sizzling on the bottom. And the chilli paste sauce is served separately, so you can control the amount of sauce depending on your taste. The harmony of varied ingredients makes a fantastic taste!
When you finish it, you will get the golden-brown crispy rice on the bottom. That’s the best part of Dalsot Bibimbap!
Whew! We emptied most of the dishes. Service was nice, atmosphere was good and food was amazingly delicious! It was just a perfect dinner.
In addition, I paid only $17 extra because of the voucher! What a bargain
Right next to the restaurant, there is a beautiful parklands which is good for taking a walk. We were so full, so needed little bit of exercise before going to bed.
Didn’t I say Andrew is a talented dancer? Well, he proved himself
