Every week involves a seemingly continuous stream of food, drinks and people. Of course not every taste or conversation is post-able, but the range of experiences is usually pretty amazing. Discover favorites from July 25 – 31, 2011, some of which will help to fuel full posts.
7/29/11 – My Friday ended at Young Dong, a Korean restaurant that specializes in Sul Lang Tang, with good friend Matthew “Mattatouille” Kang. A backlit, wall mounted menu touted 14 options, including Beef Cheek Soup. Add scallions, salt, pepper, chile, kimchi (cabbage, scallion, radish) and steamed white rice to the clear beef broth, which in this case contained nearly-melting slices of beef cheek, which are dippable in soy jalapeño mustard sauce.
7/31/11 – Full of Life Flatbread owner Clark Staub prepared Jimenez Ranch rabbit flatbreads in his tiled, domed pizza oven. The flatbreads also hosted smoked mozzarella, roasted onions, roasted garlic, Grana Padano cheese and parsley.
7/31/11 – Christophe “The Oyster Gourmet” Happillon shucked oysters from Baja’s San Ignacio lagoon that tasted like I swallowed a wave. They were that briny, but great.
