First timer

My blog supporter, Gregory, has finally had his palate exposed to Korean Cuisine. He drove from Tallahassee in North Florida to Tampa, which is about a 5 hour drive. Let me introduce ourselves,

On the left is me, Harmonity (aka Dorothy) and on the right is Gregory.

We went to a local restaurant in Tampa called Sa Ri One, which is it's popular's name, and I invited my other two friends to come along. I had my usual 순두부찌개, and my two friends had the 돌솥 비빔밥. Gregory, however having no idea what he wanted, I suggested something that I never had myself, but had all the small experiences Korean Cuisine could offer. 뚝배기 불고기, which is beef broth with 불고기 and noodles found in 잡채.

As you can see above, it was a very nice gathering of Korean Dinner.

Here is a video of how wonderful Gregory's soup was from Steve Miller's eyes.

I found this personal blog, but also a professional blog for Korea's Tourist Industry, of a traveling video journalist who visited South Korea. He's the guy in the video above and his blog is located at this website.


  1. Thank you very much for treating me to my first Korean dining experience!

    뚝배기 불고기 was good, and I was surprised that the 뚝배기 불고기 had that sweet element to it, expected at first it would be more like a savory gravy flavor. I am not a frequent eater of spicy dishes, so it was a very good recommendation!
    Eating the soup with the rice already on the spoon was new to me, and I saw that suggestion on the video as well. Is that a common way to consume it? I have heard of a variety of spicy Asian dishes being eaten with a lot of rice and now am wondering if that is what they meant.

    1. Yes, it's a very common way to eat it, and I've picked up on it very quickly because it's actually easier to eat the soup with the spoon than it is with chopsticks.
