Golden Lobster Sashimi Etc.
at Hwa Hwa
-Yeoksam, Gangnam, Seoul, Republic of Korea-
with the Family, Mom and Dad
My mother’s birthday today.
Hwa Hwa is a Japanese restaurant. It’s one of those chi-chi places that only have rooms and only offer course meals (kaiseki).
Currently, Hwa Hwa is my parents’ favorite Japanese restaurant.
As I’ve said it before, I wish that they’d keep the gold flakes and charge a bit less. This is the 4th post on GMTD to feature gold (see also 5.267 (Literally) Golden Sushi; 6.018 Bok Jeongsik; 9.169 Chamchi Hoe).
The food was okay. Everything was impeccably fresh, but otherwise kinda blah in its predictability. The lobster sashimi was the only thing new to me, though I didn’t like it, rather rubbery and flavorless.
Happy Birthday, Mom.
