Cycle 13 – Item 147
1 (Wed) May 2022
at Yeogjeon Halmeoni Maegju 1982
-Changgok, Sujeong, Seongnam, Gyeonggi, Republic of Korea-
with W, HRS and family
Today was local election day (national holiday).
Invited HRS over for lunch, and she brought along her daughter + son-in-law (he’s Korean-American, so she thought we’d hit it off).
Not planned as such, it turned out to be a Pan-European spread: Gambas al Ajillo (Spanish) + Salade Niçoise (French) + Penne with Shiitake in Truffle Cream Sauce (Italian). In my haste, I forgot to toast the bread, salt the eggs, and top the pasta with arugula, which only occurred to me as I was looking at the photo. Nobody seemed to notice anything amiss.
After lunch, IZ and I took Louis Le Pieux for his monthly spa treatment.
While waiting, we hung out at my favorite pub.
The Rabokki was quite good. First time that I’ve had it with cheese (American processed cheese), which just melted into the mix and mellowed out the spice a bit, not as weird as I would’ve thought.
