A quick entry before I head off to the Thanksgiving feast!

Sunday, after a long hike, SB and I were starving.  We headed to Korea House in the Japantown area of San Francisco.  I was up for a full Korean meal, since I had only satisfied the fried chicken portion the night before.

We both ordered dolsot bibimbap — a rice dish that comes in a clay pot. (Wikipedia has a great description of the dish).  We also shared seafood tofu soup and lots of little appetizers, one of my favorite things about Korean restaurants.  It’s a good thing we were hungry — it was a lot of food!

(A bibimbap sidenote: the first time I had bibimbap was on a Korean Airlines flight to Taipei via Seoul.  It is, to this day, the best airplane food I’ve ever had.)
