Happy Dinner with my friend in Happy restaurant

in food •  3 months ago

There was a restaurant on the boundaries between the old and new road.
As soon as passing through the old alley, there was a restaurant where we promised to meet.

Actually, the restaurant was on the boundary close to the old desolate alley.
So I couldn’t recognize the restaurant at first, as I passed by the restaurant.

From what I heard, the restaurant was a Korean traditional, but the appearance looked like not a Korean traditional but a Western traditional style.

There were the interesting patterns and letters on the wall which made me think it not a Korean restaurant. The fixed idea always makes people confused. I was not a exceptional case.

The appearance was much more modern style.
I could see the inside of the restaurant from outside.
The atmosphere of the restaurant was cool.

As soon as entering the restaurant, I could see the kitchen. The deployment of the Kitchen was some what different from other Korean traditional restaurant. Usually the kitchen in the Korean traditional restaurant was located in hidden place.

The Kitchen was clean and bright.

A young man of nice smile guided us to the table which was near the window.

Menu was on the table. Menu was simple.
Interesting thing in this restaurant was that I could the kinds of the rice.
In Korean society, the rice was very important.

As an agricultural society, the rice had been simply not a rice but a symbol of the life and an essence of the culture through thousands of years.

It was first time for me to choice the rice.

Me and my friend ordered the white rice and the brown rice.

This restaurant was very cautious about selecting the bowls.
All bowls were almost art piece. The bowl was made by the famous ceramic Artist.
They set the dinner. It looked really awesome.

Side dishes were beautiful and delicious.

I took the photos to share with you

Below was appetizer.

Setting table

Rice

Side dishes

We drank a bottle of SoJu. SoJo was diluted by the traditional way.
Name of Soju was ‘Wha Yo’


(Oysters)

Desert : boiled pear with honey

Me and my friend had had a best dinner that night in recent days.

I just happened to forget to tell you the name of the restaurant.
It was ‘Heang Bock Han Sang’ which meant ‘happy table’

Very excellent post. Your gift of being a great storyteller will take you far. You took a simple concept of posting a meal shared between friends and created a post that was interesting and informative. Way to go! I will continue now to follow your posts and I'm sure be very satisfied with what I read. It is truly an experience for your audience!

Thanks for sharing your experience. I feel like trying it out because you've presented a detailed restaurant review. If i were the restaurant owner, I'd pay you a lot for this article. You deserve it. 😊

·

hahah, thank you

·
·

very cool, what you do :)

thanks for upvote :)

·

Did you hear about the new restaurant on the mars? Great food but no atmosphere.

wooow so delicious food dear

yummy))

·

Se nota lo lindo y lugar agradable para ir a pasar, de ve todo muy rico!

Just yesterday I read an article on how important the culture of eating in your country is. And the attention on how they are served shows it ..

·

hahaha,
Thank you for your attention

looks great and delicouse

I wish I had been at the restaurant having the best time

·

one day we'll definitely have dinner together there my friend...keep patience

The food looks flockin' great, the location looks very cool, if the company was good I'd say you definitely had a winning dinner.

Very nice place! thanks for sharing.

is that kimchi soup side dish? Looks amazing meal!

I found it ironic, @slowwalker, that after finding the Pimatgol had disappeared you came upon a modern Korean restaurant close to an alley that was anything but traditional, and in fact, was very modern.

The pictures suggested it was very clean and almost antiseptic in appearance, almost bordering on being stark and minimalist. It didn't bode well for your mood.

But you were greeted by a young waiter with a friendly smile who guided you to your friend waiting at a beautifully set table.

It turns out that the restaurant is named‘Heang Bock Han Sang’ which in English means ‘happy table’. You also enjoyed a happy meal.

So despite the loss of the traditional alley and its culture which made you sad, the day turned out to be a celebration.

What is the universe telling you, my friend? LOL!!

·

LOL
C'est la vie

nice food

thanks for sharing this amaizing moment.

I agree all is beautiful and tasty...

What's the difference between white and brown rice? I think I've only seen white rice here?

Brown rice has more fiber - Here is more on it https://www.aworkoutroutine.com/brown-rice-vs-white-rice/

Thank you for your kindness

There were the interesting patterns and letters on the wall which made me think it not a Korean restaurant.

that simply taught you not to judge a book by it's cover, appearance can be deceptive at times.

You guys really had a nice time there, it's always a good idea to experience such once in a while.

Yes, but it was diluted, so closer to the rice whisky

This is really beautiful and the food look delicious. As a Nigerian, I have always wondered if Korean and Chinese dishes are the same. Are they the same or just similar?

음식들이 보기에 정갈하고 맛있어 보입니다. 애피타이저로 나온 것은 팥죽인가봐요. 달콤한 그리운 맛이 느껴집니다.

부엌은 오픈 키친인가 보네요. 요즘에는 요리도 손님들의 눈과 귀를 사로 잡는 버라이어티 - 예를 들어 커피 전문점 스타벅스에서 손님들의 오감을 자극하기 위하여 커피 머신에서 일부러 원두를 볶는 소리를 들려주고 하는 것처럼요. -가 되었기 때문에, 예전부터 오픈 키친 형태로 많이들 변경한 것 같아요.

가게 이름이 행복한 상이어서 또한 친구 분과 좋은 시간을 함께 공유했기 때문에 행복하셨을 것 같습니다. 좋은 하루 되세요.

Food looks so yummy . thanks for a detail review .

Thank you for stopping by

one word is enough in my opinion, Never Give Up

Incredibly delicious photos. I've never tried Korean cuisine. I have heard that in Korea they eat dogs. But maybe this is just a joke. Anyway, your pictures are very appetizing. I would love to visit this cozy place with a beautiful name. I share the view that good food is one of the components of happiness. At the very least, to cause joy and configure on a positive the food perfectly. Have a good day. Thank you for a fascinating walk.

Hi slowwalker..it was the best meal i ever seen in last few months.. So many traditionnal dishes.. All are looking tasty.. Heang bock han sang meaning happy table.. So it was my second word i learned from you.. Shots are beautiful as usual.. Overall the restaurant is awsome

·

Jeong sik dang is one of the most famous restaurant in Korea.
But this restaurant is not so well known.

First I thought the bottle is a vodka bottle :D .. Food looks so different and I am sure it is delicious cause it looks like that , greetings Lena

·

hahah,
let's do it

Oh my goodness. My husband @nebi and I love Korean food and my mouth is watering just looking at all your photos! Thanks for sharing!!

Thank you for dropping by

This is really a high-quality review of a restaurant. Also, this place really looks luxury though. I think there is bright future with much of potential in Korean food to be internationalized in other countries as Japanese foods have been succeeded with successful marketing and strategy, targeting a particular group of consumers. Normally, when Japan exports its food in other countries, they don't export not only the ingredients and the receipts but they also bring the authentic way to cook the food itself. I believe that this is the critical way how Japan has been enjoying much of success, exporting their food and culture.

Frankly, Korean food hasn't been successful in other countries. Some say that Korean foods have been successful in its business in overseas market through K-Wave movement but the foods in successive track in the statistic is not the authentic Korean food as it is mentioned in this article. On the other hand, the foods are likely to be snack how we call "Bun Sik" in Korea or dessert form.

I think the matter is how we could export the food elaborating with the word "luxury".

In this term, I think there are much potential to be success in Korean food industry. It is because the foods are actually very rich and well-made that the authentic luxury foods were served for the King and the royal families back in the old time.

Therefore, here is my own critical suggestion that we must target a particular group of consumers in the beginning of the export process. Particularly, Southeast Asia countries tend to follow up some luxury stuff that other rich people are wearing and eating.

Hence, we really need to have a particular and critical strategy to proceed it in the near future when we could exploit the K-wave fever

Yes, we need to choose you for the minister of culture.
I agreed.
