not sure why, but its been a tradition that our friend chris takes us to hodori after he picks up from the airport. it’s a 24/7 korean restaurant. as many of you might know, LA has the largest korean population outside of korea. the koreantown in LA is HUGE and packed with so much good food.
as i have mentioned many times in my posts, im not too crazy about korean food in general, but i was reading Roy Choi’s book: L.A. Son: My Life, My City, My Food on the plane, so i was actually feeling some. (anyone else bought the book? i enjoyed the stories, but i found the recipes to be weak and incomplete, what do you think?)
jeon bok jook – chopped abalone porridge
roy choi mentioned a lot about abalone porridge in his book, so i thought i’d try it out. i was expecting big chunks of abalone like chinese seafood porridge but there was none. i guess i ll stick with chinese fish porridge in the future.
