This milestone snuck up on me, but lo and behold: this is my 100th post! Writing this blog has been very rewarding and has helped preserve my sanity in the face of life's monotony and drudgery. Thank you for reading and I hope you'll stick around for a hundred more! Moving on...
Last Saturday, I had the pleasure of meeting up with Anjali of Delicious Coma. We had lunch at Yu Chun, a Koreatown naeng myun hot spot. I had never eaten there, but chose the place based on its street cred and it was a winner (what a relief)!
Their famous kimchi mandoo: these babies were big! The filling was surprisingly full of flavor, which I appreciated (I hate it when mandoo are lackluster and unmemorable).
Naeng myun: I loved their version. Glorious broth and ice chunks to keep the bowl delightfully cold. No wonder this place was packed when we went. I wholeheartedly endorse Yu Chun for naeng myun cravings!
And for dessert, where else but Scoops?!
Anjali chose peach red wine and mascarpone Oreo.
I had coconut green tea (would be great at the end of a sushi meal) and brown bread (the Grape Nuts really work and I liked it, but I didn't fall in love with it).
It was so lovely to dine and gab with Anjali, can't wait to do it again!
