we decided to have a low key valentine's dinner with some korean food that we normally don't get at café 232 - i was craving some miyeok-guk (sea kelp soup - that black mass at the bottom) so we got a small bowl to share, then a large hot steaming platter of Andong Jimdak (soy sauce braised chicken with veggies), which i'd only heard of but never had. it was a----mazing. a tad sweet, if i had to pick a flaw, but with mochi sticks, sweet potato slices and other veggies along with perfectly cooked chicken, it was so so delicious and we savored every bite of it. as it turns out, miyeok guk was a good order to balance out the flavor of the huge stew.
