Butcher's Block - if you happen to be at the Farm while visiting Athens and this is still around (menu is constantly changing) - try this. The pork belly is ridiculously tender and creamy, sausage under a bed of sauerkraut is kickin and the grilled casatillo is tasty as well.
Yukgaejang - often overlooked for Han Il Kwan's Korean BBQ, is their yukgaejang (a spicy, beef soup). One of the many Korean dishes you'll miss out on if you only follow the mainstream stuff (ie. bulgogi, galbi, bibimbap, etc...)
Tonkotsu Ramen - it's halfway between my house and school so Haru makes for a perfect lunch stop. I like their shio ramen as well but I can't resist a creamy tonkotsu with tender pork slices swimming amongst ramen noodles. Don't forget to order the pork takana rice with your noodles as well!
Cheesy Eggs + Waffle - no, this isn't a typo. WH's cheesy eggs are good - I don't even care about the fake butter they use because it's that awesome. Their waffles (although hit or miss depending on the location) are tasty as well. No, I was not hung over or drunk while eating these. Who said I'm a food snob?
The Shed at Glenwood
Sheep's Milk Yogurt and Carrot Cake - words don't do justice to this thick, creamy yogurt accompanied by dates, crunchy things (pecans?) and sweetened with honey. Just
AYCE Korean BBQ - that's all you can eat Korean BBQ for either $9.99 or $14.99! $9.99 scores you chadolbaegi (thinly sliced beef brisket) and ssamgyupsal (pork belly) and the pricier option gets you fresh, unmarinated, boneless galbi. Dish out the extra $5 and get the galbi. Go now while it's not at the peak of its popularity because as a lot Korean restaurants go - quality suffers as business picks up. Wait...why am I sharing this then??
Sope, Flautas, Chilaquiles (Rojo) - it's cheap, servings are generous and it's tasty. My favorite are the sope, flautas and the chilaquiles but other dishes are worth trying as well. If you don't have the appetite to try a lot of things, get the chicken sope. It's awesome.
Braised Pork Belly (Lunch Special) - braised for 6 hours, only available at lunch and only 1 pot of these are made per day. Incredibly tender - it melts, in, your, mouth. It even has a fried egg with it - how can you resist? Go early and grab their $4.99 special.
Chinese Breakfast and Buttermilk Fried Chicken - good Chinese at an Irish pub? Yes. Slices of tender, braised pork belly on top of fluffy rice seasoned with soy sauce. If that's not good enough, you get a sunny side egg to take it over the top. Their buttermilk fried chicken is also very good and it's on top of buttery grits which will ultimately be garnished with fried chicken skin. Take your statin and go now!!
Actual cooking and more food stuff later this week.
