JANG GA NAE Korean restaurant and the late CHRISTMAS exchange gift

THIS POST IS ABOUT ME CATCHING UP ON MY PERSONAL SOCIAL LIFE------When I quit work at an online ESL company way back 2008, I was not alone. Most of my batchmates braved the storm.Three years later, we have turned into a bunch of  home based workers with salaries higher than the average employee but with no social life. In short, deprived.

Such is the case every Christmas. We all droll over the idea that everybody's busy exchanging gifts while we are on work mode.Yeah, we miss company Xmas parties. Such is our deprivation. We didn't even manage to meet prior Xmas or New year so I decided to call on a lunch date with them on January 7,2012. One of our friends,Josh, came up with the idea of exchange gifts. So there, we were very noisy in a Korean restaurant january 7 exchanging gifts and all like a bunch of deprived kids while people were looking, confused. :)

It was a day of food and catching up on each other. wanna share some of the photos I snapped in JANG GA NAE Korean restaurant in Ortigas.

JANG GA NAE Korean restaurant is as authentic as you can get when it comes to Korean food. The owner is Korean and it is named after her.It was formerly known as Menato and has a different feel before.Kinda miss the old interior. The food though is as good as ever.

...............asked the help of my student in South Korea to help me out in naming the following food and understanding what the ingredients are and how they are prepared. I am the worst food blogger in town you can find. I am into food blogging for the sake of eating. The remember-the-name-of-the food-part is where I such at, specially if it involves Korean terminologies. Thanks Jenny for the help. :)

PS: Until now, I still prefer Korean food over Japanese food. Came back to Moshi Koshi in Shaw Blvd the other day to give Jap food another try but the satisfaction I get with Korean food is still more pleasant. I am not saying I will not be trying to like japanese food altogether, if I can remember, it took a few conscious effort to try Korean food before I fell in love with it.

Yun lang. hihihi. To my friends, mag twitter narin kasi kayo para dilang tayo puro skype. :)

  2. OMG! Perfect post! I just had dinner at a Korean restaurant along Macapagal Avenue last night. I love Korean foods ever since I started appreciating it. Bukod sa masarap, e healthy pa. Those side dishes and barbecue perfectly fit together.
