We arrived late Saturday afternoon after a smooth flight from London Gatwick (this time we breezed through security and passport control) and although we tried our best to stay awake, we were in bed by 8. The next morning, we started our holiday in Vegas with the usual very early jet lag breakfast at our favorite, The Original Pancake House, where we had our fill of fluffy pancakes with sausages and bacon.
That evening, we went for dinner at Korean Garden. Although this is one of our Vegas mainstays, we didn’t have a chance to go there and have a meal last year so we were looking forward to having a Korean barbeque meal. After ordering, we were served the usual banchan (small dishes of vegetables and pickles) and kimchi (spicy fermented cabbage) then the raw meat was set down to be cooked on the hot tabletop grill. We started off with the sirloin steak served with a sesame oil and salt dipping sauce. This was followed by some dak (chicken) and dwaeji (pork) bulgogi (barbeque). We also shared some jap che (sweet potato glass noodles with vegetables) and mandoo (dumplings) which the kids loved. To complete our Korean feast, we also had the beef short ribs stew that is no longer on the menu but worth the wait. The food was delicious as usual and the service quick and efficient. Surprisingly, we didn’t have much to take home, just a bit of the pork bulgogi and the beef stew – perfect for a quick lunch of leftovers the next day.
