Stan’s Burger Shak – Hanksville

After leaving Moab, we headed westward, and spent an evening in Hanksville. It’s a town that’s about 50 ft long. Our motel was within walking distance from Stan’s Burger Shak. In fact, our continental breakfast was there and you get a coupon for the place upon check in. With very few other options, we had to check it out. It’s attached to a gas station, so it’s handy too.
Here’s another animal head!
S was feeling a bit healthy, so she got the turkey and avocado sandwich. White bread, I love crappy white bread like this. I bet I would have liked this sandwich.
I wasn’t feeling healthy so I got a buffalo burger and onion rings. These onion rings were way overcooked so it was a crunchy mess. It doesn’t mean I didn’t like them, but really, they should have paid attention a bit more so they were cooked correctly. Did this burger taste like buffalo? I have no idea, this was my first time eating a buffalo burger. It tasted pretty much like a regular meaty burger, but maybe a tiny bit different. But it wasn’t anything offensive or even too noticeable. I liked it just fine. It was a formidable burger, considering it was attached to a gas station. When in Hanksville, be sure to visit!

Wicked Brew – Moab

In case you don’t want to get your coffee in person, Moab has a cute little drive-up coffee spot called Wicked Brew. You can get your coffee fix without ever getting out of your car.
They’ve got hot coffees, cold coffees, teas, and some baked goods. And it’s all organic, fair-trade, shade grown stuff. There are a couple of chairs out back too, in case you want to hang out. And places to put your bike. You are in Moab, after all.I got myself an iced latte that day, as it was extra hot out, and the dude inside the shack was more than happy to help me. It was indeed cold, tasty, and strong. It kept me going for an entire day of hiking!

Pre-Party Lunch – More Food Court

We had to go to H-Mart in Elkins Park to pick up the rice cakes and to Ko Ba Woo to pick up the food from the caterers. So while at H Mart we had lunch at the More Food Court. My brother’s mulnaengmyun. Pretty darn good! It’s fairly zesty and vinegary already, without needing to add any extra.
Here’s my mom’s bibimnaengmyun. It’s the same noodles as the mul one above, but without the mul (water). It was pretty darn spicy and firey.
My SIL’s shrimp and veggie tempura. It was ok. The veggie selection was heavy on the carrot and missing sweet potatoes or yams. She even fed some to baby E and he ate it up! It was E’s first tempura.
I was feeling noodley so I got the jjajangmyun. It wasn’t the best ever, but it was quite respectable. What really made it stand out was the generous helping of noodles it had. It was seriously heavy on the noodles, and that’s why perhaps, I felt like there should have been more of the stuff on top. Why can’t they get the ratio right? This food court has a bit of everything… I could eat lunch here pretty much every day!
