Lunch Date 1 Korean Grill
I like cooking (obviously.) But I also like to eat out, get some inspiration, expand my senses and just get some good grub that I didn’t have to prepare. My darling dear husband and I decided to try to have a lunch date at least once a month for this very purpose. Yes, I can be extravagant in my choices or wishlists to try, but for this to work for us we decided to be a bit practical. A lunch item is often half the cost of a full dinner and you get to sample some fabulous food. Added bonus, I am hoping to indulge in some specialty food shopping along the way. Today I hit up Mitsuwa MarketPlace and Le Sur Table on the way home! Score! Both were having sales!!!
For lunch, I had the baby octopus pictured below, but my darling had the Dak Bulgogi, sliced chicken marinated in specially fomulated house sauce which was just delicious and the layers built the flavors exquisitely! Our server and host were extremely personable and obviously proud of their restaurant. It didn’t hurt that we arrived at 2:15pm and the regular lunch crowd had thinned out considerably. No need for dinner tonight! DDH didn’t like the hot tea, I loved it!
