Fresh off Sunday’s adventure in dining at the Brazilian steak house in Itaewon; today we walked across the street from our apartment to a brand new place that does steak Korean-style.
Because it is so expensive we rarely indulge ourselves with beef during our stays in Korea. Don’t really miss it too much because I love me them pork dishes– especially daeji galbi and samgyapsal. But on special occasions, like meeting the esteemed Kevin Kim or celebrating Jee Yeun’s sister’s birthday, we can splurge for the cow. Now Tabom Brazil is all the meat you can eat for around W30,000 a head. And at the place pictured above (name escapes me at the moment) we got more meat than we could eat for W45,000 (they add W2000 per person for the side dishes). Jee Yeun liked the Korean style better than Brazil (surprise, surprise) and I’ll just say I like both apples and oranges.
In other news, I had my consult with Dr. Yoo yesterday where we discussed the findings from my recent comprehensive physical exam.
Actually, my liver is fat but otherwise healthy. The best news was my lungs, colon, and prostrate are doing fine. The stomach thing wasn’t cancer either. So I need to continue waging the battle of the bulge through diet and exercise. And take some pills.
Lots of pills. Which I guess are supposed to keep the cholesterol low so the 50% blockage in one heart artery doesn’t progress any further. Don’t want my sweet old heart attacking me any time soon, that’s for sure.
Life is good.
