Just a few items for your "hump day"!
Jeong Won Korean BBQ:
During our visit to Spicy City I noticed the sign for a new Korean BBQ opening up next door:
I asked around and was told one of the former Owners of Arirang House has decided to get back into the restaurant business. There sure seems to be a lot of activity in the Clairemont area. The location is 4690 Convoy St.
During one of my trips to the Mira Mesa area, I noticed that China Chef appeared to be closed. I did a U-turn and drove into the mall to check things out. Per the sign it looks like they are temporarily closed, and set to reopen on March 3rd.
Party, party, party!!!
To quote my "nephew"(my good friend's son)....as a 2 year old, whenever we were set to go to the zoo, Sealife Park, or someother activity. I sure do miss those days.
In that vein, I recently celebrated yet another Birthday. MrB and I both celebrate our Birthdays in February, so it has become sort of a tradition over the last few years to get together and have a party of sorts. MG is the most generous Hostess, and always feeds us well. And as you'll notice, most of the dishes are pretty much targeted toward my appetite.
MG's knowing that I love Kaldereta had her cousin make some Kaldereta! delici-yoso!!!
I was asked for the one dish that I wanted. Having heard so much about the Sisig from Conching's Cafe, but never having the planets aligned during my visits, I requested it:
It is as good as advertised, perfectly balanced. Even the Missus, who "doesn't eat pork" (somehow Bi, Crispy Pata, et al aren't pork?), had 3 servings.
The rest of the good stuff:
AmyA baked us a wonderful cake....but please don't ask what the "numbers" mean...nothing good can come out of that!
There are few things better than a Filipino party! There is a downside though; hearing me sing "Achy Breaky Heart" on the Magic Microphone is enough to spoil the heartiest appetite. As always MG, thanks for your warmth and generosity!
I hope everyone is having a great week!
