Yesterday I met my friend Kathy at Takatsuki. She lives in Ibaraki and teaches English at a University nearby.
After lunch and some window shopping, we were browsing around the Takatsuki shopping arcade.
I came across a kim chee shop that I had been looking for. The shop was featured in a foodie magazine and every time I've gone to Takatsuki I had been looking for it.
I didn't realize this, but you can also eat inside. They serve bi bim ba, buta kim chee (pork kim chee), chijimi (pajeon) and many other dishes. (will have to go back to try them!!)
They sell a bi bim ba veggie set. I bought one of the sets (400 yen--about US$4) and decided to make bi bim bap with it. The set comes with spinach, mung beans, zenmai (flowering fern/osmunda) and daikon (long white radish) namul.
I put some of the veggies onto some rice, added a little kim chee and corn, topped it with a sunny side up egg and some bi bim kook soo sauce.
Kind of mixed up Korean style food, but this was a great dinner with almost no cooking involved.
