in dinner, movies, restaurant

The Surrogate Valentine/Daylight Savings Double Feature is tonight so I gathered together with my cast/crew for a day-before dinner.

“I thought you were a vegan,” Mike said.

Uh….nope! I’ve been wanting to try Feng Mao Mutton Kebab 2 for a while now, just never had a group big enough to go in on a meat fest with me. We took up half the place!

It’s in Koreatown, so we started off with complimentary banchan

…and egg custard…

IMG_9579

…I devoured 2 plates that looked like this while going over the menu.

As you can see, this place is also Chinese; I spoke in broken Mandarin with the waitress, then gave up. Deciding on food for a huge group frightens me!

Gary took over the ordering, and also the BBQ duties…

IMG_9586

…though we got a lot of help from the servers.

So. Much. Meat!

IMG_9594

I lost count of how many I had. At least a dozen. Maybe 15?

IMG_9587

Mostly mutton, dipped in cumin seasoning. But plenty of pork + beef soaked in sauce…

IMG_9598

…and chicken, straight up!

IMG_9610

In addition to all of those skewers, I ate 3 pieces of fried prawns in mayo with walnuts…

IMG_9608

…and probably 4 pieces of this fried salted…cod? Pork? I can’t remember anymore!

IMG_9616

More double fried something was also consumed…

IMG_9589

…in addition to Ma Po Tofu. Which also had meat.

IMG_9602

IMG_9603

There were vegetarian skewer options too, I just didn’t have any…

IMG_9593

…though I did try some of Abe’s bok choy with shrooms.

IMG_9612

IMG_9614

God, the food was really good. I don’t know how, but we conquered all of it!

IMG_9623

Probably best not to wear cashmere, like I did. Julius is gonna be obsessed with this sweater!

Feng Mao Mutton Kebab 2 (I just love saying that) is within walking distance of one of LAAPFF’s theaters, CGV Cinemas. We wobbled over to the 9:30pm screening of Viette

…written/directed by and starring one of our very talented dinner dates, Mye.

An intense, important, incredibly powerful and personal movie.

A lot to digest last night.

That place looks amazing – have to try it! I love how Korean restaurants always bring you a ton of food before you even get your food. The perfect way to celebrate Eat What You Want Day! :)

Holy bonkers BBQ! Can I be a crew member on your next film? I just want to join for the get together meals! I will happily carry shit around and take out the trash for this meal. ;)

I love how my face is completely obscured by MEAT.

I haven’t had a nice hearty meat feast in ages – it was definitely a mouth-watering spread! Does Feng Mao need to update their pics for the menu? Yours would be perfect!!
