at Hanseong Kalguksu
with the family and Dad
Emergency Sick Leave, Day 7 (see previously 7.018 Mul Naeng Myeon).
In Seoul. Arrived a week and half ago on a mission. Injured my back last weekend (see generally 7.011 Bacon Cheeseburger Pizza). Staying in town for treatment. Aiming to return to Manila next Saturday.
Incidentally, my mother has been in the States all week, leaving my father completely helpless, which is why we’ve been having dinner with him so frequently these days.
Tonight, his other plans got cancelled, so we cancelled our own plans, already in progress, and met up with him again.
He took us to one of his favorite restaurants.
The spread was distinctly northern in character.
The food was good all around. As with all the dishes, the kalguksu was plain, but in a good way, demonstrating a kitchen confident in the purity of the flavors, how northern food should be.
