late lunch at dokebi - tried their mexican-korean brunch menu.
the "huevos koreanos". despite the cheeky name, it was quite good!
i had the regular favorite, mushroom bibimbap, but in hot stone bowl.

back from a short trip for thanksgiving.
it was quite a short trip, unfortunately...
despite all the deliciousness and warmth of all of us together,
it was a sad first thanksgiving without paul...

veggie bibimbap i made last night.
with fresh arugula, steamed and seasoned kale (2 kinds), kimchi, and eggs (lost).
craving greens lately.

despite dokebi being our go-to place for korean food in brooklyn,
we found out that williamsburg cafe on wythe turned korean while biking one day.
so we went to give it a shot - a HUGE place, with us and another table,
i guess it was an early dinner time on a wednesday.

we got the spicy pork bbq dish and a dwenjang jigae.
the pancakes (i think mungbean pancakes??) were free.

the food was just okay. nothing amazing.
especially since dokebi has amazing soups/stews,
and the last spicy bbq pork i had was in sunnyside,
which was amazing - so this was a bit of a let down.

they have sushi rolls though, which were decent!
(didn't get to photograph them)

i haven't been documenting my food as much as i'd like lately... :(
amazing hand pulled noodles on doyers street in chinatown,
one of my favorite streets/alleyways in the nyc.
they even brought us fresh cilantro later as toppings.
fresh hand pulled noodles with eel (top) and fujianese wonton(bottom).

belated food report from LA part 2.

day of amy's and my show opening, a big group of us (artist friends and their other halves, & the nice people from arrested motion) went to a nice izakaya dinner.

then the opening:

then to a bar :

i didn't get to take more pictures (of more food, more gallery visits),
nor did i take any pictures the next day,
which was our free day with friends after the opening.
it was fun to see friends nonetheless,
and excited to see some of them again next month!
belated food report from LA part 1.

this trip was rather short - 4 days, 2 of them flying - and hectic with a lot of driving to get a lot of work done.
first meal on our way driving up from long beach to santa monica
was our old favorite, spoon house - a japanese pasta house.
mushroom & uni pasta on top, and their house spaghetti with meatballs.
the spaghetti was really good, the sauce being tart and spicy.
mushroom & uni is heavenly... despite their raised prices.

then some furry bike in venice :

i wonder why you'd need to be so warm in LA.

then morning 2.

a mediocre breakfast somewhere in culver city.
