my boss asked me to attend this event next friday with a coworker. apparently there are numerous underground eating and food clubs that have been popping up all over new york, especially in williamsburg (that's in brooklyn for all you non nyers), every once in a while. the location is always at a secretive/private venue and is constantly changing- you also need a special invitation and code to purchase a ticket. anyhoo, i was able to secure a ticket with a coworker and am pretty psyched to go. yes- i agree, sometimes my job has its perks. the menu seems pretty appetizing: bacon poached swordfish? berkshire pork tartare? crispy american lamb breast? um, fuck yeah, count me in.

speaking of food, my friend treated me to dinner last night and we went to shanghai mong in koreatown. i've eaten there before, but never noticed this amazing dish they have for $8.95. they have this special that comes out with 1/2 an order of jjajangmyeon (짜장면) and 1/2 an order of jjampong (짬뽕), how fucking genius is that??

the forever ongoing debate of ordering jjajangmyeon (짜장면) or jjampong (짬뽕) at a restaurant is finally solved, amen.


  1. that sounds pretty sweet. tell me how it goes.

  2. I'm going to have to check that restaurant out. Thanks for the insider tip.

  3. whoa, i've never heard of these foodie clubs. obviously you're much cooler than me. ;-)

    btw, i finally remembered to add you to my blogroll links.

  4. Please elaborate on jjajangmyeon and jjampong.

    Now I'm curious what it was that you had for dinner.
