My Favorite Restaurant

I'm heading over to King's Fine Korean Cuisine tonight for dinner. I'm so excited I can hardly contain myself. I have only gone there once before, for my arrival anniversary this year. It was fabulous! Seeing as I'm Korean, I consider myself a worthy judge of Korean cuisine... despite the fact that I've lived here my whole life and I've had Korean food less times than I've eaten Mac & Cheese, I still give myself the right to critique.

You must go to this place. We didn't stay for the Korean karaoke that takes place at 9pm, and I won't be able to witness that tonight either, but someday I'll hear all those Korean mom's singing their little hearts out in Korean.

At our first visit, the people that walked in with me were the only white people there. I swear I've never seen these people before in my life, I don't know how Saint Paul ended up there, he must've been lost. It struck me as odd that they were in the minority. If you walk into a typical Chinese restaurant, you mostly see chubby white people chowing down, and maybe 1-2 Chinese families (if you're at a good place, like the Ho Ho Gourmet). Not the case at Kings! I have never seen more Koreans in one place, since Korean culture camp. It's kind of fun, and odd.

Regardless, it's a really great place, and I loooooove their beef bulgogi (which says a lot because I don't really eat meat). Everything was good. I look forward to another bowl of Miso soup, and their little dishes, and the kim-chee. In the words of Rachael Ray, "YUMMM-O!"

Love that bull-go-gee. Ask Mitch if you need any other good rec's for Korean restaurants.

Btw, what is a Korean Culture Camp?

Korean Culture Camp is for Korean Adopted kids. It's a week of culture, class, dancing, tae kwon do, and mingling with other little Korean's. Oh the fun we had.
