So during a recent lunch with my mom, as per usual, the conversation moved onto food, and she told me Hand Made Noodle House, my brother’s family’s favorite kalguksu (Korean knife-cut noodle soup) restaurant in New Jersey closed. According to the owner, the restaurant couldn’t make money selling $10 bowls of noodles so they revamped into a more all purpose Korean restaurant serving Korean barbecue and soups. I’m sure this was sad news to my brother’s family, but me, I was fine. Better noodles were always a few blocks away. READ MORE »

Hurrah! My appetite is back! In fact, last night, after too many shameful $5 lychee martinis at Verlaine, I somehow managed to scarf down a slice of pizza on the way home and then a bowl of instant Korean ramyun when I got there. And yes, before I went out, I had a galbi (Korean BBQ rib) dinner.
