Japanese-Korean izakaya

Japanese-Korean izakaya

25th June 2013. Working from home only works if catering is inclusive or if one is a passionate grocery shopper and cook. Neither applies in our case. Which is why we go out a lot. Not only on the weekend but during the week.

An interesting u-turn in my life, I am more happy to go out rather than to come home. Quite the opposite effect to my weekly routine as an employee in the therapeutic pedagogy field.

This post is about what we had for dinner. I know that if you are the 50% of my readership that gave birth to me and the other 50% that is Tomek’s parents, you will be very happy about another food post. Food is a big topic in our families. I guess this is the aftermath of what you get, if you have been a poor eater as a child. The term pescetarian is suspicious in countries that have just recently come to economic riches and consider the daily consumption of animals a sign of prosperity. Korea and Poland do not only share the history of imperialistic neighbours.

I feel the need to stress the advancements in culinary service in Asian countries, and our correlated well being. We go out late and restaurants are still open.  Like the eatery, we visited tonight. In walking distance to our home base, we tried another Japanese izakaya in the hope for Japanese moderation in Korean servings and more seafood than meat choices.

Location: 75-95 Seosomun-dong, Jung-gu, Seoul. It’s called Dining Izakaya Tensho. Their website is in Korean.

Starters. You get those tasty appetizers before ordering your meal. Korean radish and glass noodles.

Tonight we received all meals in the exact order we listed dishes to the friendly waitress who foresightedly didn’t regard the fourth meal we pointed to. Portions are big in Korea.

The picture menus are loaded with serving suggestions not particularly related to the appearance of your dish.
