Bunny-unnie and I hung around in my neighbourhood last Thursday, and today, we met up on a whim. My neighbourhood is called “Gyeongnidan”, hence the entry’s title :) The places we went to our repeat because they are just that good.
Last Thursday, we wanted to go to Mesiya, but they were closed, and another restaurant we wanted to try wasn’t opened either, so we headed to Son’s Kitchen, a Korean restaurant we both adore. Bunny-unnie got the dotori mook set, and I got the marinated brisket set. Both are delicious, and I just love how we get all these side dishes. All together, our meal cost less than 30,000 won ($30 USD). Afterwards, we went to Chansbros to have some coffee, and I gave her some extra notebooks I had, a couple of being Moleskine.
Today, which is Tuesday, Bunny-unnie contacted me an hour before I got off work to see if I could join her for dinner. I did have time, so we met up. We thought about going to Mesiya, but we hesitated because we had no idea what “agedashi tofu” was, their meal of the day. So we tried to go to two other places, but we found them to be closed. We took that as a sign to go to Mesiya and try that unknown tofu dish. We’re both glad we did. It was delicious! Fried tofu in a broth, with their usual salad, dried sweetfish, cucumber with garlic, rice, and fruit. Yum!
After Mesiya, we headed over to by 92 to get some banana cream cakes to go. See, we like their cakes, but we dislike their coffees. So we took their cake and headed to Chansbros where we both like the coffee. Chansbros doesn’t sell cakes or other pastries, so they allow people to bring outside pastries to eat with their coffee. We did that, and oooooh, it was a match in heaven. By 92 cakes + Chansbros coffee = foodie orgasm. NOM.
And that was my Gyeongnidan adventure. On a side note, yesterday, I met a friend who’s moving back to the states, and we had the Italian buffet at Greenstreet, this restaurant in Dragon Hill Lodge. It was pretty good. What I liked was how you could choose your own pasta ingredients, and the chef would cook it for you. It was yummy!
Let’s see what my next foodie adventure will be. We’ll find out soon!
