This enormous jar was so heavy to hold while taking the photo in the other hand. I don’t want to disrupt my forty (my 40th) pickled eggs!!!! They are so perfect. Thank you @marelynlarios for doing this 🖤! And thank you @marelynlarios @jackalshirts @megan.e.clarke @artbyloreque @ihabali @carlyehutch @ @slabqueen for all of the handmade art and wonderful time at #ifac .
[ The Kitchen ] 🇰🇷 In the mist of me dying from final exams, I have decided to waste my 1 night out of many, so I could go get Korean food (because I was craving it....still am sorta craving it tho) ▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️
Soondooboo-Jigae (spicy soft tofu stew) 7.5/10
I was actually craving some budae jjigae (Korean based army stew) but they didn’t have that, so this was my next best option. The stew contains some beef bits, some bok choy, mushrooms and A LOT of tofu. The strew comes with a bowl of rice and banchan (side dishes) of kimchi,
eomuk (fish cake), and some kongjaban (black beans)~ I’m not a huge black bean person, but the fish cake was really good 😁 Overall I enjoyed the soup with rice, though it would be even better if they added more veggies in the stew instead of a load of tofu. (yes I am aware that it is a tofu stew after all).
Dolsot Bibimbap (hot stone pot bibimbap): 6.5/10
The egg on top was super cute, and added flavour to the otherwise a bit bland rice+veggie mix. The rice tasted a lot of sesame oil (I am biased and don’t really like it) and the beef was almost like very lightly marinated ground beef ??? The gochujang did help bring out more flavour, but I just didn’t really enjoy this as much as the tofu stew. Oh and this meal also comes with the side dishes~ ▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️
It’s a really small home restaurant, the whole vibe screams “home cooked comfort food”
This place is a little bit expensive for the quality of food I got (but they come in big portion so I guess my poor student self should be thankful ?) I forgot the price of the food, but both orders above are over 11 dollars (ended up spending about 30 bucks for 2 ppl which is not terrible but still I’m cheap 💸) I might come again for the tofu stew, but not really rice bowl ▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️
Facts about me: I have close to zero tolerant for spicy food...but I still go through the pain for my cravings.
That’s all for today,
Lots of love, bai 👋🏻
