The meal started with some basic dishes. 물김치 (water kimchi) and a seaweed porridge. Both good, but not quite what I was craving...
After a little while later the good stuff started coming out. Sashimi, and the good banchan (side dishes).
Doengjang soaked cabbage, garlic and mushrooms and thinly sliced radish folded with sesame leaves, plus lots of salad type things not pictured here.
Though it wasn't on the set menu, we were brought out a special 빈대떡 bindaeddok because we had to wait a little longer than we expected for our food. We were so busy enjoying the ambiance and the starters, we hardly noticed that our food was taking too long!
Just because we finished the galbi didn't mean the meal was finished. Then they served up doengjang jjigae with rice and the meal was finally finished off with a cup of refreshingly sweet bokbunja juice.
I feel like I've been really spoiled this month with all my great students and fun end of semester parties. I wonder if next months will ever live up to this one?
