Korean Food is Love
Last night I took Johnny (in Erin's car - what a brave girl) up to Hanha Reum ( = "Number 1 Place" - for my korean inept follk) in Catonsville. It's an Asian food mart and it's awesome. First off, and John can vouche for this, there are so many hot Korean girls around there that just oogle over young white men able to say "excuse me" and "thank you" in Korean while I decide which red pepper paste I want.
"Oh, you know Korean?"
"You bet baby."
"Old girlfriend when I lived in Korea."
They instantly melt. And since John is a hot man...they give us an extra time of day just for the shit of it. Actually last night a cute little thing helped me find my one mission "Mul Man Du" (water dumplings) now that's not as smiple as it seems. Most dumplings are big and shaped like the eyes of Liz Taylor but these are small little pearl beeds. They are great when you get a big bowl of soy sauce but some cinnamon in and sit back and watch West Wing (my plans for this evening). Anyway we got that and the following delicacies:
This is some of the stuff I bought - I'm so excited to cook this stuff for a week or so.
!Warning sloppy awful pictures ahead!
Spicey ramen. Koreans equivalate this to our consumption of potato chips or pretzels.
Normal pork dumplings. Ehh...they are ok
Milkis! Carbonated milk drinks..mm mm mm!
Wrap your meat in mint leaves and feel healthy.
Put this on the meat before you put it into the mint leaves.
The little ones at the bottom that are open are Mul Man Du (water dumplings)
Meat to put the sauce on.
So Erin and Vickie didn't eat any. Mike slobbed through his and Johnnie and I almost had the semblence of a normal evening. It was close. But I think tonight when I go home I will make some Ramen, Mul Man Du with Cinnamon Soy Suace, and Kelbi. I will watch West Wing and update JVMM
it will feel much more like Korea...lol...
