Food Friday #027 — Kimchi Garden

Being back in Berkeley without a meal plan means A) getting extremely creative with limited ingredients (think chili ramen) or B) giving up on cooking and eating out. The second day, after chili ramen options were exhausted, I headed out with Kyle and Kelly to try some more of the local food options. I meant to do that during the school year, but being tired every day and having meal points to burn meant I ate at the dining hall more often than not. Luckily, I made up for that in the week and a half I was here.

We arrived at Kimchi Garden, a place a bit further off the beaten path, as it is inside a corridor near Asian Ghetto. Not knowing what to get, I ordered the special of the day, the chicken teriyaki plate. Ordering was super easy as the cashier was extremely helpful and patient. The service was quick and the food was decent, but I feel like I can't comment legitimately on that as I was feeling nauseous that day. The portion was huge; I could only finish about 2/3 of the plate. My only criticism would be the atmosphere, as the setting was quite bare and the entertainment/decor amounted to a TV screen playing inaudible rap music videos.

 I'm not in Berkeley at the time this was published, but I wanted to space out the Food Fridays to Fridays only, so the next few are probably scheduled as well. To be honest, I'm not sure if I should continue this series because I don't enjoy writing these posts as much. It would be more useful and interesting to make home recipes. However, it does encourage me to get out of the house a bit more and try new things, so even if the posts aren't great, they do serve that purpose. ◊
