Anyway, if you go back to that old post I said we got a 'great deal'. HAHAHAHA! I'm cracking up over that one...but OK, if this car will last us for another 10 months I'm still insisting we got a good deal. :o)
Aren't my friends pretty? Wonder what they are up to? Well the back seat of my 'hooptie' is broken. Stuck. The seat won't lift up. They are sitting on top of the folded down seat and yes, we are driving out into the world's 3rd largest city to go to lunch. You think we are crazy? Well maybe, but they had a choice, drive in Korea or let Trishie drive and sit in an unsafe car. This was their choice. And they are happy about it. And we all lived to tell the tale.
This is where we had lunch.
We don't know the name of it.
Heck, we didn't even know where we were going.
Diane was a fearless leader.
She told me where to go.
But check it out....see that van?
That is my van.
That is valet parking.
I parked the car myself.
I gave the 'valet' my key.
When we were done I gave him 2,000 won.
He gave my key back to me.
Valet parking at its finest.
Marci eyeballed this Plum Wine.
We had to drink it because....well....really, who would not want to be seduced into softness?
I made that face....you know the one.
The one that after you have tasted something so bad you gag a little.
Yeah that one.
Give me a bowl of makkoli any day.
Michelle made the face with the Makkoli.
(Don't worry, I only had a few sips - I was driving remember!)
As with many Korean restaurants you cook your own food.
I've got to tell you, I LOVED this restaurant.
The food was amazing.
Perfect amount of spice for me.
Some of the other girls weren't huge fans, but only because they are new to Korea and they don't like seafood.
We should have ordered the plain bulgogi for the newbies.
Exit Commissary gate - turn left
Stay right - Turn right onto Itaewon Street
Turn left on Daesagwan-ro - this street has a light.
(You will be going through a street with many lights and lots of people walking - near Hannam Village)
At the light pretty far down just before you come to the big intersection (Daesagwan-ro) turn left a - it's kind of a crazy light - I think it is just flashing, maybe not even a light at all - but more of a 4 way stop.
The restaurant is on your right just a few stores down.
Park on the street in front of the restaurant.
