My time in South Florida was quickly slipping pass me. With just 2 full days left before heading back to California I wanted to make sure I accomplished two important things. One, spend quality time with my mom and two share the unique taste of Korean food with my family. I accomplished both of these in one day.
First I went out to a local Art Museum with Mom, because art has been important to both our lives.
Afterward we walked around the nearby park and riverside.
yelp.com. There was a different one I tried to go to first but they never answered my calls.
However, I considered that to get the authentic Korean taste you need a lot of ingredients. Also I noticed that there were Korean people at the restaurant so it must be a local favorite amongst Korean expats.
The spicy factor wasn't too bad and stayed on scale with mild. I just warned everyone that if the dish is red that means it's hot.
Even the young ones liked their meal, but found the concept of sharing odd. They remarked how they still felt hungry afterwards.
All in all, it was worth the price to share this daily experience that I have in Korea with my family. I know the place was expensive so I have doubts they will return there. Yet, perhaps they will find a cheaper Korean joint to go to.
Certainly I had a good time being in a Korean restaurant in America and feeling some nostalgia towards my foreign home. Next time when I go back to the states it will be fun to try out more Korean restaurants.
