A Taste of Korea

Our Homeschool group has a geography club that I created a few years ago. Each month we independently study a new country, this month was S. Korea. Falcon's Tae Kwon Do instructors family are Korean and they own a local Korean restaurant. I have never tried Korean food in my life and thought this would be a great experience for us to go eat there. I invited our homeschool group as well. On the first Thursday on January, 15 of us (children and adults) showed up eager to eat some Korean food. Two of the families had eaten Korean before and myself and 1 other family had not.

The outside woodworking of the small restaurant that sits in a strip mall. This entryway was amazing and really set if apart from everything near it.The Korean owner did all of the woodworking and painting himself. I was blown away.

I especially loved this, so cute!

Sign that says Korean Restaurant.

View of the inside of the restaurant. It was small only having a total of 8 tables but big in terms of Asian style and taste.

Here is a painting that sat over one of our tables, the owner did the artwork himself as well and all the indoor and outdoor woodworking. The owner is also a Grandmaster of Tae Kwon Do.

Here is my food, doesn't it look pretty? I could not tell you what I ordered because I just said okay to all the recommendations from our waiter and it was all FANTASIC. I now find myself craving Korean food and have been searching the Internet for Korean recipes. I will defiantly go back and eat there very soon, my mouth is watering just thinking about it.

Not sure what this is but I thought it was neat!

I am so glad that I was able to bring this country to life for my children and really get an authentic taste of traditional foods from S. Korea. I highly recommend this restaurant to all my friends and family. A beautifully designed restaurant, great service and mouth watering foods that has created a craving that will only be suppressed by eating at this restaurant in the very near future.
