I had a date with my preggy friend last Thursday and decided to dine in IHOP which is actually one of the few places I go to alone very often. It’s my friend’s first time there and she kinda feels weird having breakfast meals for dinner. But then she said, that’s to be expected whenever she’s with me. (Okay, friend. I’ll take it as a compliment!)
I think those who know me can tell right away which one’s mine… 😉
So it was my day off and two of my friends just finished from work and we’re all hungry. One of them really wanted to have rice and soup so we went to the Thai restaurant I frequently go to with my other friends and colleagues.
We had seafood tom yum, chicken satay, tempura and a variety of fried rice. The rice serving seemed too much for me that I wasn’t even able to order my favorite sticky rice with mango anymore. The tempura was quite disappointing though. I don’t think I’d ever order tempura from them again.
Anyhow, it still was a good late lunch (or early dinner) with my friends last Friday.
Do you enjoy Thai food as well? What’s your favorite dish? I’ll be delighted to know! 🙂
My friend and I had an unplanned dinner yesterday and we ended up dining at Korea Grill in New Park Hotel.
The side dishes (banchan) weren’t very good except for the kimchi. The Rabokki (라볶이) was good while the Jjamppong (짬뽕) tasted quite differently from what we were used to, but it was still okay.
Rabokki = Instant Ramen noodles + tteokbokki (spicy Korean rice cakes)
Jjamppong = spicy noodle soup (with lots of seafood)
We also ordered hotteok (not included in the photo) which I think is the winner for the night. Hotteok is basically sweet pancake and is one of the most popular foods in Korea.
Korean and Vietnamese are my top favorite cuisines and I am not sure which one to put first among these two, unfortunately, there are no Vietnamese restaurants around here (as far as I know).
By the way, the service was very good.
How ’bout you? What’s your favorite cuisine? Let me know in the comments. 🙂
