Nanja Wans


at Il Il Hyang

-Nonhyeon, Seoul-

with HJK

The Prodigal Son Returns for Xmas, Day 6 (see previously 6.349 Bangeo Hoe).

In Seoul.  Here through Christmas.  Going back on the 26th with the family to Manila, where we’ll finish out the year.

Il Il Hyang is a Chinese restaurant. Several branches, including this one in Nonhyeon. Currently quite the hot spot, even though the food is the typical Korean-Chinese stuff (see generally 3.198 Stir-Fried Shrimp…).

A long overdue night of dinner and drinks and debauchery with HJK, whom I haven’t seen in nearly a year (see most recently 5.361 Palbochae).  Just the two of us this time, as HYP has gone to the US on sabbatical.  Won’t elaborate here on the details of the debauchery, but debauch we did.  Good times.

We tend to start off with Chinese because of the gaoliangju, which is more elegant than soju but not so intense as Scotch — both of which would come into play later in the evening.

The nanja wans was good.
