My dear cousin, Lei, is a real Korean TV series addict. She watch almost all popular Korean drama. Heck! she even watch other not so popular drama to kill time while on her night shift as a doctor in a hospital. Sorry lei, I just blow out your secret :P. And because of her I start to watch Korean Drama too and I'm hooked. Come on, who doesn't dream of a good looking guy grabbing your hand, pleading you not to leave him? Or about MBC's director, Sunbae, who sings for you at the Karaoke (this one is for my mom, she's a big fan of "all about eve" and he's in pseudo-love with Chang dong gun.)
As always, the complimentary Banchan for starters/side dishes. That day they serve two types of bean sprouts, pickled cucumbers, caramelised potatoes and of course kimchi (clockwise)
Our Zambong was definitely not made with the freshest sea food but more like teeny weeny pieces of octopus, shrimps and veggies. But their house-made noodle was excellent, it was cooked al dente and had a bounce that no dried noodles can imitate.
The scallions seafood pancake was again made with a little bit sea food, but it was deep fried with a lot of scallions so we could accept it and say that we liked it.
Here is the Tangsuyuk, which was actually, deep fried pork pieces in sweet and sour sauce. It was great on the first bite, but after some time, we felt bloated from the deep fried batter and there were really more batter than pork.
And here is the spicy octopus on rice, which I ate alone on another day, As you can see. I forgot to bring my camera and this photo was taken with a mobile phone camera.
