So, so far, I've been sticking with Chinese food which is cheap and delicious, even if it's not authentic. (Plus, I've never lived in China, so I don't know what's good and what's bad, I just know what I like)
Steamed buns! But, filled with 밭; red bean. Not my favorite in Korea or America, but edible.
Monday was a stop at Hei La Moon, which I first visted just before coming to Korea back in 2008. This time I actually had my camera on me (when don't I have my camera on me nowadays?) and documented what we ate. This is about as authentic as it gets for dim sum, people, and probably not for the weak at heart (or stomach). We were the only non-Asians in sight in this huge place.
Beef filled... rice cakes? Very yummy.
Dumplings filled with shrimp and veggies... yummy!
The Chinese fried bread I wanted to try so badly in China and never got the chance. Exactly how I imagined... fried bread.
Tuesday night another friend of mine and I headed back to Chinatown and went to Taiwan Cafe in search of those soup filled dumplings I had in Nanjing a few months ago.
But though we found them, and they were good, they were not nearly as good as that little shack on that side street in Nanjing. But, how could they have been?
Crispy noodles, beef and veggies. Best of the evening
Our table spread. In the middle is a beef and watercress dish that was also delicious!
This is, I'm sure, just the beginning of my adventures in Chinatown while I'm home, so stay tuned!
