Day 5.108: Dinosaur - family-style
My Korean business guests were once again an excuse for a meal out and this time it was 'our' turn to show them a piece of American culture. The association of 'Korean' and 'barbecue' is certainly nothing new, but I was far from sure how they would respond to big chucks of smoked meat.
All eleven of us had a rather good meal.
We had thirteen of their hottest wings, two of their family-style meals, each with a whole chicken and a rack of ribs, and one with a pound of pork, one with pound of brisket, two links of the hot sausage (to give everyone a taste) and one portobello sandwich for the vegetarian. At the end, there was a bit of each of the family-style sides left (we had beans, coleslaw and fries) and a cornbread muffin. We successfully and happily ate everything else.
It was a really good way to experience the place - everyone was able to eat more of what they liked and, after a few days of eating out twice a day, no-one needed to eat more than they wanted. The service and food were both excellent and despite my mixed expectations, I was impressed and will, I dare say, be back.
