Cycle 4 – Item 230
23 (Fri) August 2013
at the cabin
-Changchon, Seowon, Hoengseong, Gangwon, Republic of Korea-
My favorite thing, more than all other things combined and multiplied by a gazillion – “gazillion” is an actual word – is getting alone time at the cabin. This time, I just needed to do some urgent crap for my mother, like rearranging furniture, but nobody else wanted to go. Thank you.
On the way, I dropped by Hwanghae Sikdang for lunch. I confirm that it’s pretty good, though not as good as Goeup.
One key benefit of solitude is that I can eat solo-type food, like a burrito. Makes me feel like I’m back in college.
Here, I tried a whole wheat tortilla for the first time. I think that I might actually prefer it to flour, at least for burrito applications. The grainy texture and nutty flavor provided a sense of substance, elevating the wrap to an actual component along with the inner ingredients, not just a plain package.
The seven layers included: (1) refried beans + (2) minced chicken breast + (3) canned corn + (4) steamed basmati rice + (5) cheddar cheese + (6) pico de gallo + (7) Tapatio hot sauce.
