I have a monthly play date day with my sister. We live in the same house but we don’t actually get to spend much time together, so we started this play date thing about two months ago. We go out for brunch or lunch and chat for 2-3 hours without any distractions. (Though on this occasion, I was quite distracted as I was busy taking multiple photos of food as it was arriving. *guilty*…Perhaps we should go to a non-Korean restaurant next time to spend real quality time together. )
A few weeks ago on our play date day, we decided to go to a Korean restaurant in the heart of Brisbane CBD. I didn’t have any particular food that I craved for as I’ve been cooking and eating Korean food for most of the meals since I came back to my blogging again, but my sister said she wanted to eat Sundubu Jjigae (Uncurdled Tofu Stew). While each restaurant might sell the same food, they all have different strengths in different food. According to my sister (who often visits various Korean restaurants here), soup & stew is best at Maru. So off we went. While Maru’s been around for a couple of years, this was my first visit. It was just after half past one, so it wasn’t as busy as it could be, but still tables were reasonably filled up.
