I recently met up with a new friend, Fiona.
She recently moved here from Singapore with her husband, who is studying at a local university.
We met up for lunch and tried a Korean restaurant that she wanted to try, Chingu.
I ordered the kimbap (Korean sushi), while she had the Bulgogi Chapchae.
Our meals came with some bancha (side dishes): omlette, kinpira gobo & kim chee. It also came with seaweed soup.
The owner also gave us some salad to share. The salad had slices of asian pear in it which gave it a little sweetness to it. There was also a little kick from it too, I think there may have been some kim chee sauce in the dressing.
The kimbap was delicious and really pretty looking, here is a close-up of it here.
After a pretty leisurely lunch, we went to have coffee at Sant'Andrea Cafe. I ordered the cafe mocha, but this one came with more whipped cream than coffee...
Then it was time to go, Fiona was kind enough to share with me some bak kwa from Singapore.
It is like jerky, but sweet. After tasting it, it reminded me of lup cheong.
Thank you Fiona for such a fun day, I hope we can meet up again soon!
