공씨네주먹밥 Kong’s Riceball

I often find that little hole in the wall places are the best kind of places. They typically serve some of the most unusual and delicious little finds. Take our secret restaurant for instance. It’s so off the beaten path and it has some of the best food we’ve eaten since living in Korea. I guess that’s why we really can’t let the week go by without grabbing dinner there at a minimum once.

Last night I got a text from my girlfriend Mary asking if I wanted to meet up for lunch at a little hole in the wall near both of our homes, Kong’s Riceball. It’s been on my list of places to check out because every time we pass it on walks we chuckle to ourselves. Humorous name, right? Plus the slogan reads, “Get some FUN – Fast Unique Nutritious.” Obviously it was hook, line, and sinker.

I’m sure you can guess what Kong’s serves up…if you guessed rice balls, you are wrong. Just kidding, of course its riceballs silly!

You get a choice of filling like tuna, spicy grilled chicken, spicy anchovy, flying fish and cheese, marinated beef, roasted pork, crab meat and broccoli, salmon, spam and even kimchi. These little guys remind me of the Korean kimbap triangles that are sold in convenience stores here, only BETTER.

Kong’s forms a ball with the seasoned rice, sticks the filling in the center, and then roll it in roasted sea laver or seaweed. It’s really tasty, I promise! Plus, it’s really convenient and would be a great snack for when you are on the go. We got the flying fish row, the crab meat and broccoli, and pumpkin porridge. I completely forgot to post the cost! Super cheap! Mine was only 6,000W!

Check it out and let me know what you think!

Then for a little sweet treat pop on over to Cafe 7 Gram across the street, just like we may or may not have…


Friday Night Farewell

It’s F-R-I-D-A-Y!! Woot-woot. Can you tell we are a little excited for the weekend? What’s on the agenda you ask? Well we are planning to try a Korean buffet style restaurant located in New City. The restaurant is located on the second floor of a building directly across from the Jihaeng train station. We haven’t included the name because we still need to obtain the correct spelling to provide it.
We ended up walking because it wasn’t raining for once and it’s in rather close walking distance to where we live.

Anyways, our dear friend Brad will be joining us tonight. Brad is leaving Korea in a few days and will be reuniting finally with his family back in the states. We are going to miss Brad dearly, however, we are really glad that we got the chance to get to know him and become good friends with him. We know that no matter where our travels take us we will still maintain a connection and hopefully one day get to meet back up again. Brad, if you are reading this we are praying for your safe travels and awesome homecoming!

Well folks this post is going to be short and sweet. We will post pictures of our night when we get home later.
