Cycle 3 – Item 279
10 (Wed) October 2012
La Mian in Scallion Oil
at Crystal Jade La Mian Xiao Long Bao
-Myeong, Jung, Seoul, Republic of Korea-
with various members of Ajou University School of Medicine’s Class of 2012
For reasons beyond my control, I had to chaperone our 1st year medical students on an evening field trip to watch a play in downtown Seoul. So long as we were in the neighborhood, I bought them dinner at Crystal Jade. Most of them followed my recommendation and ordered the same dish. They all seemed happy with the choice.
In Korea, “Class of 2012” means that they entered school in 2012, not that they’re graduating in 2012.
