I had my best lunch in Korea, even better than brunch yesterday. But my experience at Jung Sik-dang today was so fabulous that I rank it among the very best of meals ever. I now only review lunches, and JSK compares well with Noma (Copenhagen), La Terrazza (Rome) and Konigshof Restaurant (Munich).

Perhaps he is leaving for New York tomorrow. We talked about he someday opening a third in Honolulu...with Professor Choi as investor and Ms. Yim as the manager.
