Breakfast (9:30 a.m.): I decided to call this dish “stamina bowl,” because it is packed with some serious good stuff! It has about two cups of shredded cabbage, yamaimo, natto, kimchi, and pork slices, on the bed of rice, served with goma sauce and ponzu.
Lunch (1:30 p.m.): I’m such a creature of habit. I had the same “stamina bowl” for lunch. I can’t get enough of this yummy dish.
Dinner (9:00 p.m.): Tiffany’s boyfriend Jesse is in town this weekend for his birthday so a bunch of us went to Hamjipark in Korea Town for some pork goodness. Shannon, Raf, Kevin, and I shared two orders of pork short ribs and some banchan and salad. I’m so proud that I didn’t drink any alcohol!
This restaurant specializes and is famous for pork dishes, but I have to admit that the food was mediocre at best. Servers were nice but they virtually disappeared after they took orders (even that took forever). I can’t figure out what’s so great about this place. This is one of the only times that I didn’t agree with Anthony Bourdain … but dinner with friends was a lot of fun!
