Good-bye Hatch Chile Season

It’s over… well, mostly over. Hatch Chile season is coming to a close, and that makes me incredibly sad. Why does Pumpkin Spice get four – five months and the poor Hatch Chile only gets 1? Not fair.

Well, while they have it available, get your fill of the Urban Crust Hatch Green Chile Pizza. We tried it the other week and I honestly don’t know what I’m going to do when it goes away.

New Korean Stall in the Food Court

Oh man, it’s seriously been a while. What can I say? I’m lazy and work has been a bitch. But, with the little one on the way I may find myself with a lot more time on my hands than I know what to do with. Might as well start this up again, right? Right.

So, last night, after a fairly exhausting week at work, I convinced the Hubby to go to the Food Court for dinner. It’s located in the Jusgo (formerly Asia World Market) shopping center.

If you haven’t been, it’s an interesting hodge podge of Asian restaurants and one random Cajun restaurant. Filipino, Korean, Chinese, Japanese, and Boba Tea.

We haven’t been in a while, and I noticed they opened up another Korean restaurant called Hodori (Korean text reads: Boon Shik which roughly translates to something akin to “comfort food”).

I had to try it. It’s new, it’s Korean, there’s no way I’m not going to give it a shot. So, I ordered the Kimchee Fried Rice and some Gim Mari with Dukbokki. Continue reading

A ramen shop opened up near our house so we decided to check it out. The Sapporo Ramen & Grill is located near the Asia World Market on Legacy Dr in Plano, TX. It’s in a renovated former frozen yogurt shop. As you can see in the photo above, they’ve covered up where the fro-yo dispensers were with cleverly placed framed pictures. It almost looks like it was done on purpose. Continue reading

Ok, so the photo above, that was food for 3 ladies.  3 very HUNGRY ladies.  I couldn’t get all of the food in one shot due to the angle, but rest assured that there was more food on the table.

I Love Spam!…and L&L

Holy Mother of God do I love Spam.  I don’t know what it’s made of, and I don’t want to know.  All I know is that I’m addicted to its salty goodness.  And while Spam by itself is pretty great, Spam and rice is heaven.  It’s very homey to me.  My mother frys spam bits with kimchee and makes fried rice that way.  It’s a delicious, delicious combination.  You should try it.  Salty and spicy…  mmmmmmmmm…..
