I met up with one of my sorority sisters and we both had lunch together at Kum Gang San restaurant located in K-town, Manhattan. The restaurant had two floors and it was very immense inside. The decor was also nice. How about the food? I think it was pretty average for Korean food…nothing special. It still filled me up though.

I ordered the gop dol bibimbop, which came in a hot stone pot. There was also another option on the menu if you want it served cold. My dish also came with a small bowl of miso soup. The bibimbop came with the usual marinated beef, sauteed vegetables with seaweed, and a nice egg on top. I thought it was kind of dull…the flavors just didn’t pop in my mouth. Unfortunately, it was quite disappointing. My sister ordered a dumpling soup. The banchan (small side dishes) were okay…I particularly liked the bean curd. Towards the end, we were given these small bowls of complimentary icy strawberry desserts.

Great place for lunch if you are in the area but definitely not a place worth trekking to unless you are meeting up with a friend. 🙂

Every now and then, my mother makes this really delicious and soft steamed cake (but in this case, cupcakes). It is very similar to the sponge cake and consists of very basic ingredients such as sugar, flour, and eggs. You would also need an electric mixer. You can find the recipe here. Even though it looks plain, it tastes sweet and it would be unnecessary to add anything.

A nice tasty treat was the last thing I got from Reading Terminal Market. Although I was not able to get it straight out of the oven, it was still delicious and tasted very homemade. The chocolate and peanut butter was very chunky and thick and tasted very good with the saltiness of the pretzels.

Cindy And I were on a rampage at Reading Terminal Market trying to eat and try as much food as possible. We decided to try the Strawberry Nutella Crepe from Profi’s Creperie.

The strawberries could have been a little bit more riper but how could you go wrong on desert when nutella is involved. Spread nutella on a piece of cardboard and I will eat it!

Had this again at Paris Baguette. Portions are so much bigger but quantity does not equal quality, especially in this case. I did not find this very flavorful and had way too much shaved ice on the bottom. I also did not like how they added milk to the bowl, it made the dessert very soupy. The baked goods looked very good though but did not have a chance to try them.

Went to H Mart’s food court which features a bakery called Tous Les Jours, which serves patbingsoo or shaved ice with fruits. It was so hot outside and this was a welcome treat.

My patbingsoo was topped with bananas. kiwis, strawberries, sweet red bean, oranges, pineapples, peaches, and rice cake cubes, all on top of a bed of ice. I mixed it altogether and it brought back memories of childhood.  I remember the last time I had this was when I was about 10 years old.

For 20+ years of being a mother, my mother sure knows how to whip up anything in the kitchen that screams out, “eat me.” Unlike her daughter, I for one, cannot cook a descent meal no matter how hard i try. today, she created this dessert made of fresh mangoes, mango nectar, unflavored gelatin, heavy cream, tapioca pearls, etc. after combining the ingredients together, she placed it in the fridge for 5-6 hours.

Without hesitation, I placed the first bite in my mouth. The texture is just like jello and it tasted absolutely scrumptious and mango-licious! 🙂
