in dessert, take out

This morning I attended a 4-hour meeting, which took place in Koreatown



Cafe Bleu is a bar/lounge at night (supposedly with great garlic fries!) but during the day it serves as a cozy space for 20 to talk show biz:


Breakfast pastries from Porto’s Bakery:


I ate half a cheese danish…


…plus a raspberry nipple cookie


Lunch was from the neighborhood!


KyoChon’s famous Korean fried chicken


Sushi and fried rice


I had a sampler of drumsticks/wings and a little rice action


Went back for more chicken (all but the hot wings)…


…plus a SUPER seaweed-y soup


Usually I remove the skin when I eat poultry, but never when its fried – especially when it’s been double fried (<—apparently, this is the difference between Korean and “Regular” Fried Chicken). My favorite, surprisingly, were the plain chicken fingers, though the honey glaze wings were particularly yummy as well.

For those of you who aren’t lucky enough to be near a KyoChon or Bon Chon, my buddies Hong and Kim have a recipe on their site!

Did you see my tweet from earlier today? The same but different. :)
My first comment…that looks like a box of tiddies…and then scrolled down to your own narrative. Then…big giant bellowing laugh. The perfect pastry for a little naughty lingerie party, right?!

I can’t stop staring at that fried chicken….oh and maybe the raspberry *cough* cookie. I miss Portos, but I’ll definitely have to check KyoChon’s out. Brb, salivating…

Haha I love your commentary… I’ll just be reading along, and then BOOM Lynn is talking about nipples. Way to keep your readers on their toes ;)

Porto’s is the BEST!!! Whenever I visit home, that is the FIRST place I visit for a guava cheese pastry and a potato ball stuffed with meat! mmmmm!!!!

Clearly, those cookies were served COLD. ;-)

I love korean food…but it’s so hard to find vegan friendly korean restaurants :P (for me)

I like seaweed but that soup would be a bit too much for me!

That is one seaweed soup haha, and that raspberry cookies looks delicious. I love raspberries!
