Kimchi Mari Guksu
-Oksu, Seongdong, Seoul, Korea-
with the Family, Mom and Dad
The kimchi mari guksu at this restaurant, is probably the single dish that I’ve eaten in whole or at least tasted on the most occasions in recent years. After all, it’s the best menu item at our favorite neighborhood restaurant.
And now, my father insists on it every time he’s in the neighborhood. The problem is, the restaurant only has a handful of menu options, so I need to be careful not to get stuck having to repeat myself.
Anyway, the noodles are usually excellent, but something was off tonight. Even DJ, who’s just getting to learn the dish, it being a bit spicy for a 3-year-old, declared after one bite that the noodles were “boring.”
