It’s the weekend before Brendan’s trial exams. Coincidentally my sister Ginny and her husband Vincent were in town as well.

To give Brendan a morale booster before his exams they decided to take him out to a fancy Korean restaurant near where they live.

Truth be told we’ve never been to Daebak Dakgalbi, and since they served food that were not for the everyday person by any stretch of the imagination it never crossed our minds to come here.

Ginny and Vincent went all out and ordered the signature Daebak Dakgalbi (Spicy Stir-fried Chicken), the Bul-Dak (Spicy Fried Chicken), a bowl of Kimchi Stew just for Brendan and a bevy of Kimchi side dishes.
