First things first,
Look what I registered for today!!
I’m doing the half marathon not the full but I finally registered! Today was the very last day to use a $10 coupon code so I signed up. Can’t WAIT for half marathon #2!
Aaron is at a show right now at Howlers so I’m here on my own tonight. I’ve watched two episodes of Tudors then read blogs, played with Twitter and looked at homes on Craigslist… I found a few nice ones 🙂
Last night, Aaron and I went to a notary to switch my car registration from my parents to us. I finally own a car! 26 years old. We own a house too but I’ve never actually been involved with the purchase of either of those things. Some day soon hopefully. Re-registering the car was the first step in trading it in for a new one. One that isn’t a gold, two door, rear wheel drive sports car.
After the notary stop, we had dinner at a new Korean restaurant in Squirrel Hill called Green Pepper.
Now let me preface this by saying that neither of us had ever had Korean food and weren’t familiar with it at all. With that said, take this review lightly because perhaps … we just don’t have refined taste buds.
Green Pepper was a tiny little hole in the wall on Murray Avenue. There isn’t really a sign outside so we passed it right up.
The walls were bright green and the tables and chairs were black. It was packed in there too. It’s small but every table was taken. We were seated and then sat there looking around for about 10 minutes before a waitress came over and asked if we were ready to order. Hmm. We ordered an appetizer of Korean sushi and then I ordered the vegetarian Bibim Bop for my dinner and Aaron ordered Pork Dumpling Stew.
We waited quite a while after ordering but finally our food came out. The appetizer came and then the entrees within about 3 minutes of each other.
Aaron and I both tasted the sushi… Aaron tasted it first and didn’t say anything. Then I tasted it. AHH. I couldn’t even swallow it. Seriously. 1 napkin down.
My dinner was a bowl of rice with a bunch of veggies on top and a fried egg. It also came with four little sides that I think I was supposed to add to the bowl.
We should have done some Korean food research before going I think because I had no clue how to eat it…
Here are the little side dishes that came with mine:
Aaron seemed to like his dumpling stew but he definitely didn’t love it. That’s kind of how I felt about my dinner too.
All in all, we were glad that we went and had a good time trying something new. I don’t know if this food was necessarily bad, I think maybe we just didn’t like it.
No matter what though, it was fun and interesting …and memorable!
