I asked Kyeong He if she wanted to have lunch sometime this week and Tuesday was the only day we both had available in common. We also invited Krista (thus K&K). Krista and I met up on the corner near my house and Kyeong He showed up in a cab and told us to jump in.
She took us to a traditional Korean soup house that serves a kind of fermented bean paste soup (similar to miso, but fermented longer). She says it's really delicious but all Koreans basically say that it smells like feet, and she wanted to warn us about the smell of the place. She took us there not for the soup, but for the pork cutlet (or donkatsu). I actually want to go back and try the soup because Jayden made some similar to it and it was really good.

After lunch, we went for coffee and a place called illy coffee. Dallas has wanted me to go there for awhile, but it's closed when I finally get off of school. One cute thing about this cafe is that it is also a ceramic cafe and the owner teaches pottery in the back. Dallas wants me to sign up with him and I had Kyeong He ask the lady some more details to see if it's possible. I had a milk tea and it was ok, but next time I'll go back to my typical latte. Then on our way to work, we actually saw my boss crossing the street. I introduced my friends and later they said that he looked kind of scary or like a solider. I thought that was funny.
That pretty much sums up my Tuesday! Hope you enjoyed looking at food, because you're going to on my next post too :)
