Cycle 13 – Item 283
15 (Sat) October 2022
Meat Cheese Mustard Bun
-Gaepo, Gangnam, Seoul, Republic of Korea-
with W and IZ, DK
IZ’s school hosted a family event today, which included sporting activities and BBQ lunch.
I went with the chicken, which had the components of a burger – (overcooked) meat + (unmelted) cheese + (French’s) mustard + (cold) bun – but fell short of being a burger.
We invited DK, one of IZ’s friends, over to our place to hang out for the afternoon.
Afterwards (on the way to taking him home), we went to dinner at Jinmi Pyongyang Naeng Myeon (he lives nearby).
DK’s first experience with Pyongyang-style MNM. He said that it was the best MNM that he’d ever tasted.
Small world, we soon realized that DK’s father is a very close high school friend of IZ’s uncle (W’s brother) best.
