LA Galbi


by Mom, and me

at the cabin

(see most recently 6.271 Tara’s Wedding Spread)


with W and the Boyz, Mom

Home for the Holidays, Day 5 (see previously 7.353 Tangpyeongchae).

In Seoul.  Winter break. Going back to Manila on the 31st — can hardly wait.

She marinated them.  I cooked them.

My mother had built the cabin, mostly to keep herself busy, but ultimately for us, I suppose.  But now that we’re in the Philippines, we rarely get a chance to spend any time here.  I think that little fact saddens my mother more than the bigger fact that we’re not living in Korea anymore.

When I say “best kimchi,” I mean it (see for example 5.070 Mom’s Kimchi …), and not just in the mama-boy sense.
Again, IZ’s all-in-one-bite (see for example 7.338 Haemul Pa Jeon).

The galbi was kinda off, frozen too long.  “Glad you’re here, finally be done with it.”  Thanks, Mom!

  1. Mom’s kimchi is the best. My mom makes the most incredible baek-kimchi (water kimchi). I’m also absolutely obsessed with water kimchi brine water. I can drink it like water.

    1. of course, maybe you’re mother’s kimchi is the “best,” but I mean that my mother’s kimchi is literally the best, like in history.
