First of all, I have MAD RESPECT for food bloggers and am a bit intrigued by them. Even when I was living in NYC, one of my favorite Sunday activities was reading the Food section of the New York Times with a soy latte in one hand, as I chilled in Union Square Park. OMG, I’m tearing up just thinking about it.
But seriously, they are very passionate about food in the way that I am about writing or music or making comedy shorts… its as if they speak another language and are quite angry if you aren’t a foodie like them. I could never be a part of their world thought I’d love to be a fly on the wall in their conversations.
We actually also went to a bakery in K-town that had Pot Bingsu, which is a Korean Red Bean Dessert over Ice and Fruit. This is quite the popular Korean dessert and I remember very distinctly when my Mom and I shared a Pot Bingsu when we were in Korea together. We were in the Kang-nam district of Seoul, which is like Soho in NYC, and we were at this WAY OVERPRICED cafe, but it was absolutely fab. I was only 17 at the time but I remember it being one of the coolest moments I ever had with my Mom.
Here’s their pretty cake display. So delicious looking.
And the Pot Bing Su.. I had a few bites and it was cold and creamy. Nothing compares to what I had in Seoul though…
And I saw this trailer for “Julie and Julia,” with Meryl Streep and Amy Adams…and FELL IN LOVE!! I love movies like this especially when they’re about people in NYC. Its about finding out your voice…via cooking.
Check it out! I cannot wait to see this..it makes me want to open a cookbook. Well, not really, but possibly.
