Tasting the boundaries

 (i) Decorated ceiling.

My palate does not have many boundaries. Like most of you, I love tasting food from around the world. While waiting for my meal, I made a list of obvious boundaries. My first thought was that they protect us. When I noticed the ceiling, I realised I was sitting in the story.

 (ii) Beer translates well across borders.

My friend popped over to say hello. I know that some readers like beer, so I asked for a photo, keeping her face out of frame. Privacy rights are conceptual boundaries that are sometimes crossed when photos are shared. My friend liked this photo and gave me permission to share it.

 (iii) Cheese bibinba in a hot stone bowl.

My meal arrived and I steadied the edge of the heated stone bowl. I mixed the toppings with the brown rice underneath to cook up a taste sensation. You can just see the cheese melting.

 (iv) Stone bowl.

Later, I had some Korean pancake made with mochi rice. The edges were nice and crisp.

 (v) Korean pancake.

I hope you can enjoy some crispy, edgy food this week. Until next time, be well.

I absolutely love Korean dishes! Myyyyy! The bibimbap looks sooooo delish. This post makes me wanna run to the Korean restaurant in front of my office and get one right now. Haha!

Don’t apologise, Udit. I thought it was a very strong and purposeful statement about blogging being a growing experience. Trust me, I know about the accidental stuff. Not to worry, I’ll wait for the updated version. Have a great weekend when it rolls around. x

I am a kdrama addict as well. Hehehe. I have a local resto, family owned that I go to, to satisfy my Korean food cravings but the place you go to is lovely. Love the ceilings!

Thank you! I am familiar with Korean dramas. I find them fabulously entertaining. They do know how to write their romance dramas, don’t they? Have an over the top awesome day. x

They have very good plot and that’s what keeps me company when I’m up and awake even on non working days since I work night shift at the hospital. One day I would love to visit Seoul😃

It must be a happy place to have a wonderful ceiling like that. Your photos look delicious, the rumbling in my tummy is confirmation. “When I noticed the ceiling, I realised I was sitting in the story.” The moment I read your words I knew this was going to be a delightful treat. Hmmm, wanting Korean pancakes now, but will have to settle for kim chee instead. Peace.

Hugs to you, my friend. Kimchee has a powerful ability to lift my spirits, especially in soup, after I’ve had a cold. I prefer to eat from friends’ kitchens as there’s that extra touch of warmth. I hope that one day you will get to try the pancakes.

Thanks, Lynn. I’m so happy you dropped by. I love this dish because it is so tasty and filling. I had no room for kimchee tofu soup and could barely finish that pancake but at least I survived the photo challenge. x

Beautiful and looks scrumptious! I think that ceiling is amazing, too. It’s interesting how much a ceiling can influence/set the atmosphere of a place like a restaurant-lighting, texture, color. Thanks for sharing part of your evening!

Thanks, Jennifer. I’m sure you will get to mix it up in a hot stone bowl one of these days. That ceiling was funny because I go there all the time and didn’t notice until that evening, when I was seated at the opposite end of the main section. Interesting how your perspective changes when you’re taken out of your comfort zone. x

I’m thinking how my preconceived notions re Sushi were smashed at this local Japanese/East Asian restaurant. Good. But they need to send their decor back to the 1980’s disco they bought it from. 🙂 That, & one of their specialties is named “Heart Attack on a Plate”. I kid you not.

I’m glad you had a great time at that restaurant. I saw this comment when I just woke up and completely misread it. This is a redo at a response. I would love to see the decor if you could manage it. Thanks for the linkup over at your blog and thank you for sharing your story. x

Thanks so much. I love South Korea. Every trip there has been fun. People are just interesting and real. Kimchee is fantastic. I discovered it in 2003 and it was homemade. I’ve never looked back. My supermarket imports my favourite brand for me. Yummy.

I never knew you tried so many different things. It’s great that you tried out Korean cuisine. Pretty cool that your supermarket imports things because it’s sometimes hard for us in Canada to get the brands that we need.

Thank you again, Shane. I’m glad I enjoy good customer service. I miss going to the S Korean countryside and seeing rows of oversized earthenware (jars) with kimchee just sitting out in the sun. Awesome. Thriller. Enjoy your day, Shane.

Thank you so much. The interior is super dark so I’m fortunate I got some clear captures. I wondered if anyone would even be able to make out the ceiling. I’m very happy it went over well with you.

Thank you, Jacqui. It was very tasty. There’s a fast ooh ooh dance you have to do with your fingers to make sure you cook the egg thoroughly while stirring. I always use a hankie. x
