So Appelina and I tried a new place for lunch, called “I Love Tofu and BBQ.” They don’t have a website or I would link to it. It’s a Korean place, just a little hole-in-the-wall, run, it seems, by Korean ladies. Appelina got the chicken bowl with rice and veggies, and I got the Curry Tofu Stew, medium spicy. Both of us ate for only $16 total (no beverages, just water), and A’s chicken came with a small bowl of daikon soup and mine came with a very tiny salad. First they brought out my rice scoop, bowl, and an egg. When I got the egg I texted my husband to ask him what the hell I was supposed to do with it.

Then our assortment of side dishes came. This is my favorite part of Korean food. My favorite is the slices of fried tofu, the picked daikon, and the spicy cucumber.

Here is the very hot stone pot my rice came in. The waitress said she would help me with it because it was very hot but then she never came back so I used my napkin to lift the lid. Later she came back to put the rest of the rice into a bowl for me. But she left most of the crispy rice in the stone pot which was sad.

Here is my curry hot pot. It was bubbling like a lava pit. I broke the egg into the curry and stirred it up, which is what I think I was supposed to do with it.

And here is the adorable tiny dog we saw on the way back to work.

Yesterday I had lunch at a vietnamese lunch truck called The Mandoline Grill. It was very yummy. I was going to get the tofu Bahn Mi (sandwich) but then I said screw it and got the grilled pork banh mi. It was GOOD. Appelina got the chicken Bun (noodles). I also got the vietnamese iced coffee, which was only okay. I’ve had better. Here are pictures:

I don't like cilantro (coriander)

The truck had nice artwork.
