Eden gathered us to munch and literally prick on Korean goods (palate revival for the cuisine after a couple of months) at SU RI YA. This was my Korean cuisine experience that actually made me TOIL and cry a little bit, but I never complain on the SPICE these dishes uniquely have. The one at Ralph's Wines in Escario is a first-class resto, so maybe thus the already-cooked servings and napkins.
It was like Shabu-Shabu (the one in Parkmall), but with unusually-NOISY Koreans, and kitchen ambience consisting of off-white tiles reminding you of your comfort room, and black leatherette-covered long sofas that were weirdly high.
3.5 out of 5 Silver Spoons!
Thank God there were (miniscule) potatoes and carrots
A gazillion appetizers! Unsalted pot omelette and FLOWING pork fat coming down from the flat skillet to the FAT ABYSS.
Smoky and teary eyes courtesy of the smoking pork bellies. The table arrangement? Probinsya-ish much
First outfit hurrah for 2010! Channeling a Michael Bastian outfit:
Casual plaid shirt and denim pants under a formal blazer.
Yves Identify. Grey wool blazer
Uniqlo bow-legged skinny jeans
Madico brown plaid shirt
TRAITOR DRINK of the night: MONIN (from Penthouse)
I might never drink this again. It's a pretty much depressing booze! Back to Mojitos.
