Lunch! What'd ya have? (2018)

Recommended Posts

Those look like very desirable small clams. Big ones are easy to find here, little ones, not so much.

 

Generally,  I prefer the smaller ones, given the choice. Sweeter without being sweet, if you know what I mean.

 

MY neighbours won't forgive me though. They are all convinced that clams may only be eaten with mustard greens in soup or they well spend eternities in hell, if they are lucky!

Thanks for the trivia.  Art was good but age has taken its toll on his sweet voice yet he did great all things considered.     Small intimate theater was a nice venue 

 

He is actually a cousin of a friend of mine, Both Art and Louis Perlman.  The boys from the Bronx 

More trivia: my sister used to go out with Art Garfunkle's cousin, I think his name was Sandy. Looked like him, too. Tall, thin, blond afro. This is back in the late sixties, I guess. (We were the girls from the Bronx.) Sorry to interrupt lunch.

Bimbimbap with beef tartare.

Two plates of lettuce, both with Korean dressings.

Everyone was slurping this beef rib soup.

I tried 1 of these later. Fillings are in the containers in right corner.

Vienna is capital of all things breaded and deep-fried, Korea is capital of all things deep-fried (probably).

Chewy dough filled with sweet potato noodles, onions and scallions. There's also a kimchi version.

Lunch at the market.

Hot broth in a paper cup and salty shrimp sauce for dipping.

Koreans laugh in the face of winter! Even food stall benches have heating. Outside it's cold, inside everywhere it's boiling hot. Blasting heat comes from under the metro seats, floor heating in the house or room is on full blast night and day.

This place has everything else, too.

It's a very atmospheric market.

Pork cheeks with potato and tomato stew.  Makes the day feel a little warmer.

Instant Pot rice pudding with lots and lots (too many) raisins.  Aiming to re-create food memory. This didn’t do it.

While I did some grocery shopping, Deb made lunch for herself and decided to take a nap. Left to my own devices, I decided on an IP artichoke with spicy lemon garlic aioli and a beer.

Low Carb Crispy Calamari- coated with Almond Meal. 

Doubt I'll make it again. While I am not a fan of squid, and the boys said it was good, it strikes me as one of those foods to be left for when you inevitably fail your diet :). Some things just cannot be substituted!

Couldn't take anymore garlic unless I could grill it.

Nice soya bean and tofu soup with "brisket point" (see menu above).

I'm a slow eater. Everyone is long gone.
