My breakfast has been moved to vegetables. Western or Korean, root or leaf, cold or hot, no matter what it is, if it is vegetable, all are good.
I had poulet rôti with the chicken from the countryside. Started to share it with four people, then two more people joined. It was only one chicken but sufficient to enjoy fully for six people. I think I was most satisfied during the moment because there were three bottles of Burgundy wine. Chicken in French […]
At Sokcho, my wife and I were to decide a place to have lunch. We had two options preferred: pork rib grill at Weontong and wild vegetable at Pyeongchang. Because both restaurants are pleasing, we hesitated a bit, then agreed on pork rib grill. On the highway, we happened to meet heavy traffic to Weontong, at […]
I had tteokbokki. It was made with Italian gnocchi, not with rice cake. Sounds weird! But the taste and the texture were all right—a good substitute for tteokbokki when no way of getting rice cake.
I got a chance to taste a rum, Cuvée de l’Océan from Trois Rivières. The rum surprised me with its purity and frankness. It recalled me of the highest quality vodka, ultimately filtered. Very similar to vodka in many ways but its light touch and unique flavour told me that it was a rum. Albeit […]

A friend couple brought me cheese from Australia. I’ve had no experience of Australian cheese since then. Named Burramine blue, it was quite an unusual blue cheese; French ‘Fourme d’Ambert’ or ‘Tomme’ in look, French hard goat in texture. In spite of quite a good looking as a cheese, the cheese was a bit disappointing. […]
I got to have a chance to try my first ever chocolate from Kazakhstan. Aru, a Kazakh girl, gave it to me. Once tried, it was so quick and easy to feel a prominent milk flavour. Boldly pronouncing but delicate. At the moment, I became curious about the source of such a pleasant and robust […]
Sea bass with potato; it sounded odd in their combination. On the table, however, it looked maga-nificent. Its size and look overwhelmed the people around the table. It was good. Very good. With a glass of white wine, It was a lot better. Sea bass was excellent. So was the potato. It was a moment […]
