I just don’t know how I could have asked for a better birthday! Kyle wanted to take us some place special, so first we went to a great little authentic hole in the wall, it’s down under street level and decorated in the sweetest way. We had what he described as a Kim chee pancake and then had this wonderful fermented rice wine which taste like a mix between milk, kombucha and sake. Mind you Kyle could order with ease in Korean and we were most impressed. After that, went for the BBQ, since the kimchijeon is considered an appetizer. Then finally we topped it off with a gorgeous strawberry birthday cake at a dessert cafe.
This very cool place was below street level. The proprietor just cooks it all up for you in the same room. A cool, authentic place. I must say that pancake was so delicious I would have licked the plate if no one was watching.
This is the rice drink.. This is the first alcohol Christopher ever drank in a restaurant. Not that much alcohol but enough to get a bit buzzed!
Another shot of us at BBQ
This is the Korean BBQ. Everything you cook yourself on a little grill at your table. Then you had a bunch of thing you dip it in as well as some cool stuff that you cook on the grill. (Some meant to add flavor like garlic.) Delish, I mean, like indescribably delish, and then we ordered a small bottle of the Korean vodka like drink. (Drinking age in Korea is 19) And shot it! Cheers and happy, happy birthday!!! The tab for this huge dinner for the three of us was $20. And you don’t tip!!!
My birthday cake!! It’s a special shave ice that is shaved into almost a fine powder. This was at a Korean Dessert Cafe
