@MyongChoi looks like a great date restaurant, albeit v formal. the flower pot was a big hit, esp since the dirt was mushroom powder, so u pulled out ur veggies, dipped in anchovy garlic oil, dipped back in mushroom powder. lmk what u think.
@Annoddah_Dave i was full after the amaebi and abalone. but the timing, w/ all the dishes coming out simultaneously for the event, was such that dinner took 2 hours, so at the v end i was just right.
p.s. not a t-shirt!
i like the video interview. good initiative to turn on the camera during a laid-back convo, w/ the result that we finally see a more personable side to this new chef in town. nice job, chuggy :)
