It has been far too long since I last visited Uri Jip Restaurant! Mama Chang was surprised and happy to see me when I walked in for lunch. She then chastised me for being gone for over a year or two! The island is full of Korean restaurants and everyone who likes Korean food has their favorite.
A new Korean restaurant opened late 2014 amid little fanfare in a location that had once housed Aji Ichi Japanese Restaurant. Mi-Dahm Restaurant (the sign outside has transposed the “a” & “h” in Dahm ). “Mi-Dahm” is a Korean phrase that means to talk about food, which is something you will undoubtedly be doing once you start eating here!
Chowon is ideal for those looking for a home-style Korean dining experience. It really has a bright, relaxing ambiance. It is usually filled with Korean customers, so you know you are getting the real deal when you are eating here.
Chowon Restaurant is becoming more and more a local favorite for those looking for a flavorful home-style Korean dining experience. I like to use the word “clean” when I describe Chowon because it is small and really has a bright, relaxing ambiance.
December has its own special charm that brings back cherished memories of holiday celebrations and traditions, and shopping the commissary provides savings and value that make today’s celebrations just as memorable.
Halloween candy, turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, pumpkin pies, apple crisp, roast beef and Christmas cookies are all tantalizingly good treats and easily available over the holidays.
I have dined in luxurious restaurants and exotic tiny local eateries around the world, yet when it comes to naming the most memorable meal of my life there is only one that comes to mind – our family dinners on New Year’s Eve at my grandfather’s house back in Tbilisi, Georgia.
