H Mart Dinners

When I don’t want to cook or have my mom cook, I love heading over to H Mart for something good and quick and hearty. Here are some selections. This is a random spicy pork stir-fry dish from monsieur tong tong. I mean, it was ok, but I wasn’t sure what type of cuisine this was supposed to be. It was pretty spicy.
here the tonkatsu from Monsieur Tong Tong. By far, this is their best dish, and probably some of my most favorite tonkatsu of all time. The piece of pork is absolutely huge and I really like their sauce. I could seriously eat this all the time.
My mom’s hwedupbap type of dish… with all kinds of shredded fresh veggies, imitation crab, fish eggs, and raw fish slices. Isn’t it colorful and beautiful? It tasted great too, except there were some bits of green stuff I did not like. I wasn’t quite sure what it was… it wasn’t exactly sesame leaves, but it wasn’t either. Whatever it was, I did not like!
A heaping bowl of chajangmyun, served with julienned cucumbers on top. For whatever reason, they always serve chajangmyun with cucumbers. I’d recommend all of these to try, except for the pork stir-fry. It’s ok, just not particularly interesting or great.

Japanese Fast Food With Family

My brother lives near this japanese market in columbus, so that’s where we do a lot of the grocery shopping, that and the korean market nearby. This also has a little eat-in japanese food restaurant as well, tensuke express. And people, they have ramen.
My mom and my bro both got the combo meal of beef bowl and soba. If you need more food after this, then I certainly hope you are a sumo wrestler.
My sis-in-law got the pork cutlet. I think that’s her standard order. It comes with miso soup and a heap of colorful veggies. I really like that they try to sneak you into eating some veggies with your giant hunk of pork.
As for me, I had to get my ramen in, while I could, so I got the kimchi ramen. And yes, it was delicious! This place is one of the few reasons that I’m glad my brother lives in columbus!

Boom Noodle – I Eat Ramen

Since I can’t get ramen at home, whenever I’m in a place where I can, I get it. Upon Shirley‘s recommendation, I went to Boom. It’s by the same people who run Blue C Sushi, which is a Seattle conveyor belt sushi place. There are a couple of Booms in the area and I visited the one in Bellevue, which is connected to a Blue C. The place is big and modern, with a bar, lounge, and dining area.
I decided to try the pork buns just for kicks. I had no idea if they’d be decent, and to my surprise, I liked them! The buns themselves were warm and soft and fresh. The pork was shredded and fatty, which made it a bit juicy. For veggie fillings there was lettuce, cabbage, cucumber, and cilantro. It was all served with a ginger cherry plum sauce. Really, these were pretty good!
I wanted some spice so I got the kimchi tofu, with braised pork, tofu, kimchi, raw egg, and green onion in a spicy miso broth. The broth, kimchi, and the noodles were all pretty good, but it was a bit weird. The pork was in big hunks. It made it hard to eat. They really should think about slicing it. I liked the tofu quite a bit. But cilantro in kimchi ramen? Do they not know how much old korean ladies tend to abhor cilantro? To mix cilantro and kimchi is a bit scandalous. It was still nice to eat ramen though. I already miss it. Service was meh. I ordered a drink but I never got it. Yep, the server just completely forgot about it. At least he didn’t charge me for it, that would have made me livid.
