Meat overdose

Ate here last night with the offspring, after picking her up at the airport. An accidental find while looking for something else. Can think of at least one HG regular who might also enjoy it. (The pale lump in the middle is a scoop of excellent potato salad.)

Along with the barbecue, Bicycle and Gogi's menu has selections of fried items including ribbons of 'sweet' potato fries dusted with cinnamon and sugar and several Korean dishes listed under appetizers and side dishes -- like a stunningly red kimchi fried rice with a fried egg on top. On our most recent visit we ordered the Budae jjigae, listed in English as "Johnson Soup." Also known as Army stew because ingredients could be bought from the U.S. military bases throughout Korea, Bicycle and Gogi's rendition includes hot dogs, Spam, instant ramen noodles, zucchini and a slice of American cheese suspended in a thick gochujang (Korean chili paste) broth.

I hope that a dinner for about eight.... Looks good, though. Although "Johnson's" grasp of the American melting pot is superb, I think I'd rather die than eat that soup.

You know, I take that back... The concept is way too pure and wonderful to quarrel over something as trivial as taste. Seriously.
