A "BYJ-meet" in Central Java...
Never guessed I'd "meet BYJ" in Central Java !!
But I was soo lucky to pass a Korean restaurant
and see something through the windows ...
yup, I saw a large illuminated image
of a very familiar and beloved face ^^
My daughter and I found this restaurant near the hotel,
actually there are two near to each other ,
one is this...Goryo Garden Restaurant, and another
is Kobe Garden Restaurant, which also serve Japanese Food .
We were going to enter through these doors....but...
Rusak in Indonesian means broken
Okie...if you've got a non functional front door,
you know how to inform your guests in Hangul
to go to the side door instead.
[Who knows Yoong Joon comes calling and can't get inside]
Do you see the white monitor on the wall ?
The one with the back lighting ?
Yep.....behind the pics of SNSD !...well...
THAT's a picture of BYJ and CJW in WLS !!
Can't see anything, right !
Just a smidgen of Yong Joon's hair and arm.
I tried to take pix of that picture many times...
it always comes out like the pix above.
" It's because the back light is too strong", the waitress said...
Hmmm, bet I wasn't the only one who'd tried to take a pix of it !!
No worries...I'll just put in that well known pix myself !
See ? It's exactly like what we saw !
After we ordered, the Banchan or side dishes came out first
After that, my daughter's order...
Mul Naengmyeon or cold buckwheat noodle.
It's so hot here in Semarang, as it's a coastal town
...this is just right, so fresh and cooool :
The dark grey/brown small noodles were a bit rubbery,
so you have to use not only your teeth..but also scissors,
to cut the noodle as you eat...mmmmm yummmy...
[was wondering what the scissors were for]
Careful as not to poke your eyes out with that scissor.
Really delicious and refreshing !
Then, my order...I played it safe and ordered Bulgogi.
Me can't eat hot food...if u know me well, you'd know that..
The Bulgogi was just right...mmmmm..mmm !
Don't know if you can do it with the meat of the Bulgogi or not,
but I spread a Ssangchu leaf and wrapped the meat
with some banchan and kimchie in it,
put the whole thing in my mouth...
and ate it K-drama style, exactly !
And...to my surprise ...it was sooo GOOD !!!
Got busy spreading, putting, wrapping, chomping^^
As we ate...we opened our ears wide...
coz the owner, a middle aged couple,
and all the other costumers in the restaurant,
were Koreans !! and they were speaking Korean ^^
We felt as if we were in a K-drama..
sadly...we found out we still needed subtitles !!
As we were leaving, I read the paper above...
it translates [incorrecty] into Indonesian as :
Sesame Oil Made for Oneself
I think I can safely translate it into English as:
Home Made Sesame Oil ^^
Thanks for following us
in our adventure in a Korean Restaurant
where we "met" Yong Joon ssi !
