Seoul Garden - Mom's 60th Birthday (Saturday, April 3, 2010)

Ethan and I drove to Ann Arbor for the weekend to celebrate my mother's 60th birthday - an eleven hour drive from Manhattan.  My brother Jason, flew in from Denver on Friday night and stayed until Tuesday morning.

We went out to dinner at a restaurant called Seoul Garden. It was a big crowd between my parents, grandparents, aunt & uncle, my cousin Beth and her two kids who flew in from San Francisco.  We've been here many times for family events and it's always pretty good...not NYC Korea-town good, but Ann Arbor good.  I ordered the Yook ge Jang (spicy beef broth, with shredded beef and mixed vegetables).  Ethan ordered the Soon du bu Jigae (soft tofu, and assorted seafood served in spicy broth).

Hae Mool Pa Jun (seafood and scallion pancake)

After dinner, Jason, Ethan and I stopped in a pub to watch the end of the MSU vs. Butler basketball game where I ordered some breadsticks...I guess I got hungry again.  

Right across the street there is a place called Cafe Luwak, that serves the Superman ice cream - my childhood favorite.  I only discovered this place because did an article on this and was amazed that this is so close to my parents house and I had never been here before.

Heavenly good!
