You can't go wrong with bulgogi (bbq beef usually eaten wrapped in lettuce).  I have never seen a Korean restaurant that didn't have it :) 

 

I like beef and ALSO lettuce. I still hope the menu has pictures so I can make a big brain decision.

My friend, you only had to ask:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Korean_dishes

Save that link on your phone and use it as a cheat sheet if the menu does not explain the dishes.

 

LORT I CANNOT PRONOUNCE ANY OF THESE

 

You would think that as a big purveyor of K-Pop I would be more prepared.

 

ALAS, I AM SCREWED

What does that feel like?  Some days I feel like a broken half-orc, others more like a ran-over tiefling, but never an actual human...

 

Some day the goal is to feel like an actual half-elf though!  B)

Well to be honest, me and @BlackTezca already tried to break the forums with an overload on GIFs and have not succeeded. We didn't came further than locking up peoples computers when loading pages. Still quite proud of that though ;)

we have this tiny little Korean market in town that has an entire restaurant in it. I've been told it's pretty authentic but I know for a fact it's just straight delish. 

 

I hope you have a good experience!

Saw travel vids with this since it's apparently pretty popular there:

 

How was it?

South Korea is a place I've always wanted to visit... now I'm even MORE intrigued....!!!

Guess what guys??  WE DIDN'T GO.

 

I woke up feeling like that aforementioned lizardperson that's been run over by a bus - I have mild autoimmune issues and some days I just feel like hot garbage Just Because - and he had a gnarly day at work so we opted to order pizza in and watch terrible movies.  It worked 10/10 pizza date FTW!

 

I'll just have to tell y'all about it when we eventually DO go!!  STAY TUNED

1) HELLO I AM HALF JAPANESE THIS IS SMALL GROUNDS FOR A BOND BUT I FEEL ONE NONETHELESS. Also, I have never been to Korea so I don't know how Korean food compares, but Japanese food is definitely weirder in Japan. Most of what we have in the US is variations on staples like sushi, ramen, katsu, etc., but in Japan they also eat things like seafood pizza and large fishcakes (I thought it was bread and bought two per person...we had to toss most of it because our American stomachs were not prepared to eat large amounts of fried fishcake for breakfast...this is not the main reason I'm going to learn more Japanese before I go again but it's one of them).

 

2) I heard this really interesting thing on a writing podcast (Writing Excuses, it's great) that international versions of food is often a snapshot of whatever home food was popular when the cooks moved. So families that immigrated in the 70s will cook whatever food was popular in their home country in the 70s, and it may not at all reflect current popular food. Restaurants are kind of like this, but also kind of like improvised/innovated because cooks will take ingredients available to them in the US or UK or wherever, and use them to imitate the flavors and dishes from their home, and it ends up being something all its own. I never really poo-pooed Americanized food because tasty food is tasty food, but it really helped me think about "Americanized ethnic food" as it's own thing and something the cooks are probably proud of, rather than thinking of it as dumbed-down food to cater to American tastes (sometimes it is adjusted to cater to American tastes, but also, see above note about seafood pizza — that is also part of food migrating from country to country).

Hoo boy howdy y'all how is it A Thursday already?!!?

 

sergio ramos gifs | WiffleGif

 

( Fun Fact: I love Sergio~)

 

Yesterday, what happened yesterday.... Ohyes, as previously mentioned, Korean date got postponed in favor for comfy pizza and movienights.  We watched an old horror movie called Devil - it's about 5 people that get trapped in an elevator, and ONE of them is the devil, and bonks the other 4... so right away we each guessed who we thought the devil was, and I WON, because I have a thoughtful connection to the V O I D . . .

 

(spoiler: it's always the old lady!)

 

Oh also I totally fricked up my whole-ass lunch prep plan by going to the STORE for SUSHI, I know I broke my goals but I also have zero regrets, a girl needs a spicy dragon roll sometimes.  UGH.  C'mon shaar you dingus GET YOUR SHIT TOGETHER

 

Today... was a good day!  Busy workday but I got a lot done and didn't shit on my own goals, ha HA. OH ALSO a very rad thing I ordered came in the mail, it is.... THIS:

 

https://getrocketbook.com/

 

Amazon.com: Rocketbook Panda Planner - Reusable Academic Daily Planner with  1 Pilot Frixion Pen & 1 Microfiber Cloth Included - Black Cover, Letter  Size (8.5" x 11"): Office Products

 

Rocketbook is a reusable notebook with MANY planner pages - week, month, notes, goals, etc - and it comes with a special pen so you can write and wash off and reuse!! I'm a sucker that - if you know me - LOVES lists and also checking things off them - and the fact I can use it over and over and over and o v e r makes me STUPID happy. My next goal, after filling it out, is to collect a bounty of nerd stickers to slap on it.  Heheheheh....

 

I have exciting weekend plans!, but I will save those for a tomorrow update...

 

Happy pre-Friday everyone!!! ❤️

Mixed East Asian in a Western world is grounds for bonding ^_^

 

To point 2–yes! My mother (and her friends) came to the US in the 1970s, and there was limited access to imported food back then, so they basically took their 1970s countryside Korean recipes and then tried to make them using whatever they could get a hold of in 1970s West Coast USA.

 

So I had things like soy sauce rice with sliced hot dogs and butter XD Korean restaurants in Seattle and Honolulu (at least the ones my mother went to) tended to have a specific menu that may have also been a time snapshot and that’s what I think of when I think of (American) Korean food. But I’ve also enjoyed some modern fusion—there was a place in Seattle that was run by a French-trained Korean chef, and you have not lived until you’ve had duck confit fried rice with soy cured egg. OMG.

 

But UK Korean food—or at least here in central London—is different. It’s mostly “street food” inspired and little shops with mostly convenience foods, aimed at the younger Koreans who are coming to the UK for university. Things also get Romanized differently so I’m not always sure I’m ordering what I think I’m ordering XD

 

(Aside: In outer London, there is a “little Korea” called New Malden, which I think is where more of my mother’s generation of Korean immigrants live. But I’ve only been once.)

 

I was at the play park yesterday and talked to a younger (probably early 30s), more recently from Korea mother (married to an Anglo-Korean) and asked her about how the UK Korean food was different than modern Korean food in South Korea, and she made a face and said she cooks most of their own food at home. So... I guess that’s not approval from the homeland XD 

 

As an aside, language also has this sort of time stamp. I wasn’t taught Korean (another digression), but my cousins were by my also-immigrated aunt and uncle, and when they speak to modern Korean immigrants from places like Seoul, they get told that their Korean sounds like “1950s Country Bumpkin” TV Korean. XD

Sounds like Mexican Spanish vs Spain Spanish (I’ve heard). Or Northern Germany vs Southern Germany (Ran into that one personally).
