Korean BBQ in Manhattan and Delicious Financier
I have eaten here many times and their meats are so good. I highly recommend this restaurant for Korean BBQ.
We had Galbi, Tongue, Japchae, pajon and Bulgogi but I only have a picture of Bulgogi because we were so excited about seeing each other and so much into talking, I forgot to take photos of those food :-(
Here is their website if you are interested in, I highly recommend this place. They also have good wine selections.
It was so much fun to have dinner with friends. It has been a long time since we had a dinner with this member last time. (One of them were visiting NY from Japan!) We talked a lot about our good memories and what is going on with our life now. It was great to see everybody and catch up.
One of the friends brought me a gift of financier. This is from a good pastry shop called "Financier". I love their cakes but I especially like their financier. Each one of them is small but once you start eating these, it is difficult to stop. They are so good!
Here is the link to their website. I didn't know but it seems like they have 6 locations in Manhattan!
The place where we had dinner is called Korean Town in Manhattan. There are many Korean restaurants and stores right next to each other. On the way back to the train station, I passed by Korean Supermarket so I went in and bought some of the stuff.
One of them was this coconut cookie. This is something I used to eat in Japan. (At least, I believe it is the same one)
Then, this is a famous spicy ramen noodle from Korea. I have heard about this before and I heard it is really spicy. I wanted to give it a try to see how spicy it is. My sister had it and she told me it was super spicy. I will see....
I had a tea time with the financier I got. I'd better enjoy them slowly otherwise it will be gone in seconds!
I wish I could bake financier this good at home!
The weather is great here in NY. It seems like the temp will go up to 78F (26C) today. Wish you a great weekend!
