Fresh Kimbap & Spicy Jjol Myun

Tried a new Korean place for lunch. They have 12 kinds of Kimbap and other Korean dishes, which are all I am curious about.

Today, a lunch buddy and I had one of regular kimbap and one of popular dishes from the Refreshment category.

SPICY JJOL MYUN NOODLE $8.99
We love this noodle although it is a little too spicy.

FISH CAKE WITH VEGETABLE ROLL $7.00
It tastes fresh and much better than ones from a Korean Supermarket I usually have. Surprising how huge one order is too. Even more surprising we finished all (the lunch buddy is such a small eater and I am not fully recovered yet with my sore throat).

They still have a lot we would like to come back for such as tempura, premium kimbap, spicy rice cake etc.

Finally, Seeing My Doctor

Breakfast

I finally saw my doctor for my sore throat. She say it is not a cold either virus or bacterial, but could be an inflammation with some chemical.

As my symptom has changed, she assumes that it’s getting better and most likely healed naturally. However, I am recommended to try “mometasone furoate inhalation powder.”

At Home

Humble Potato by UberEATS

I am sure that I have been infected with some kind of bacteria. It’s been more than 10 days since I started feeling a sore throat. It’s getting better, but not completely cleared yet. Now I regret a bit that I didn’t take antibiotics sooner.

Driving back to LA. Why the traffic completely stopped!? A helicopter was flying over and searching for something too.

Lunch: Bún bò Huế with pho noodle + iced tea $9 including tip
It’s been a while since I went to Huong Vi for lunch last time. Nowadays I usually go for dinner after work. The owner and the girl who serve me in the evening were there today. They remember my preference of pho noodle and ice tea. I feel cared.
