I finally have fast internet! It only took a wee bit long. BUT I made sure to finish this post for you all! Well, first off, Happy Veteran’s Day and Monday! I just want to say thank you to all who have served in our military include my father for 20 years of service including two tours in Iraq!
So, a little while ago, my family decided to have dinner together at a local Korean restaurant called Choi’s Korean Kitchen. Now, I know it may seem that the restaurants I go to just so happen to be Korean…I promise that different Foodie posts are coming! But here is a little run down on how my time went!
DISCLAIMER: I was neither paid nor asked to do this post. This is purely based on a personal experience and the meal was paid for entirely by myself or my party with no discount offered or persuasion.
Choi’s Korean Kitchen is located in Fredericksburg, VA about 25 minutes away from my home! It’s a bit closer than Yechon, but the food tastes just the same: delicious and comforting. Now, my family are Korean food fans but Anthony is still learning about all the yummy-ness.
In my last Foodie post, I explained that most Korean meals come with 5-6 sides. Our sides were much like that of Yechon but much more pickled veggies like the radish and carrots above. They also had the bean sprout dish that my brother enjoyed! The kimchi was a tad bit spicier but that was probably because my dad was like “Oh, we like the spicy.”
We also ordered an appetizer of Spam Musubi or Spam Rice Balls. My dad and Anthony fell in love with these the moment they took a bite and Anthony even made them a day after too…BUT these are actually quite good because the spam they use is not as salty as the spam I grew up with. It’s got a milder taste in my opinion. But it’s a great combination with the seaweed. I would definitely suggest this to you all.
So, I have an easier time with noodle dishes, but I want something to the effect of Bibimbap…which ended up being Dol Sot Bimbim Myun. Now, I have tried looking up the correct spelling because I’ve seen it spelt three different ways, so if the spelling is incorrect, please please please let me know! Anyways, this dish is essentially beef and an assortment of veggies in a yummy beef broth and buckwheat noodles. Now, I had a blast with the cucumbers, carrots, and radishes alongside those buckwheat noodles. I’ve always enjoyed soba noodles, but in this broth, they were superb.
Look at those noodles. If you aren’t familiar with buckwheat noodles, they are kind of like angel hair pasta noodles but made with buckwheat and quite frankly, I think they are much softer. Anyways, overall, this was yet another great Korean experience! The owner was very accommodating to my brother’s vegan needs and she constantly checked up on us and had many conversations with us! She makes the restaurant feel like you’re in her home and she is cooking your meal.
If you’re in the Fredericksburg area, be sure to stop by Choi’s and have a Korean family experience like never before!
