Tonight's venture took us to Seoul Garden, a Korean restaurant in Mid-West City, OK. In addition to my chopstick practice I also want to rekindle my taste buds toward Koran dishes. I ordered the beef bul-go-gi as I remembered it being a favorite of mine during my last trip to Korea. As our meals were being served we were offered to help ourselves with the miso soup; just add onions, mushrooms, and seaweed to whatever suited each of us individually. It was served with white steamed rice, chicken egg rolls, and the table spread of kim-chi, potato pancakes, cucumber kim-chi, and other items which were served family style.
I thoroughly enjoyed every bite! Things were not as spicy as I had thought (maybe even hoped) but the food was absolutely wonderful. While Seoul Garden is not near my home or work locations and is a bit of a drive to get to, it is still a location which I can definitely see myself returning.
The only downside to the whole experience was the overall lack of customers in the large dinning room. Granted it was a Wednesday night during the summer, but I would have hoped that a restaurant with as high a popularity rate as Seoul Garden would have had more diners. Perhaps they are busier during other times, but tonight was just a quiet night in the Garden.
Until next time, happy eating is only an adventure away.
