Alex's Book Review / Korean BBQ




Song:  Comfortably Numb

Group:  Pink Floyd





This is a tremendous book.
All high school students should read this.

Alex read it almost 6 months ago.

I have only just started it...
but right away...
I had found it so deeply interesting.

I am sure it will become one of my favorite books.

Anyway...
yesterday, when Alex told me about this book...
I not only said I would read it...
but I wanted Alex to write a review of it.

At first...
Alex was hesitant to write a review on this book as he was still doing 
his homework from his college and university summer classes.

However...
I know how quickly Alex can put together his thoughts...
and I also know how well he remembers things.

I told him there was no rush...
that he could just finish it over this weekend.

Well...
just a while later that night...
Alex had typed this up and had submitted it to me.

He had completed this assignment from me in 30 minutes...
right after he completed his homework.


I do this every so often to not only improve Alex's reading and writing skills...
but to let him know how well he can write.

To be able to write a book review on something which had been read 
six months prior...is a great confidence builder.

A child who can write an impromptu paper in 30 minutes...
on something which he had not been expecting to have to write on...
teaches him to read deeply from the beginning.

A skimmer cannot do this...
only a true reader who soaks up the thoughts of the author can do this.


This is Alex's impromptu book review.







I had picked this song because after eating my fill at this Korean BBQ...
I had felt comfortably numb.

I was so satisfied (and so full :)...
I felt so light and so, so...sleepy.

After eating lunch here today (almost two hours of bliss)...
as soon as we got home...
I took a peaceful nap of over 3 hours.


This Korean BBQ just opened last week...just a few miles from home.

FINALLY!!!

True Korean Bulgogi!

What a great feast we had here.

It is all you can eat...
all the Bulgogi...
all the other types of meats...
including shrimp.

Their lunch runs from 11 AM till 4 PM everyday...
and it is under $20.00...
for ALL YOU CAN EAT!!!







I just kept ordering plate after plate of Bulgogi meat and shrimp.







This seafood tofu soup was some of the tastiest of soups I have had in my life.

I had two bowls of the soup...4 bowls of the rice...
and so many orders of meats to cook right before me...
that I just lost count.

I was in heaven!




Alex also loved the Bulgogi and the shrimp.

Each meat was spiced so well.

You can see the shrimp shell dish in this picture.

We just kept ordering and eating and ordering and eating...
we spent almost two hours just ordering plate after plate...
and eating as if it were Thanksgiving.

I really don't know how they make any money on their meals.

I know they must have lost money on us  :)



We now have a special place to go 
 to enjoy a long and leisurely meal
 where Alex enjoys everything.



Alex is doing so well in everything.

He deserves a place like this.

Whenever Alex wants to go to this restaurant for lunch...
we shall go.

  1. And it's a place we need to come even if we're not doing particularly well at the moment or for a longer time.

    Bulgogi for the homeless and the poor!

    And Alex's HOW NOT TO BE WRONG review is awesome.

    And I used to duck out of book reviewing regularly. Still think a book review is best written by those who deeply engage in it.

  2. Thank you for your comment. Alex really loved the book. It makes sense to him.

    If you are ever in Reno...this restaurant is a must go to.

  3. Alex has become a really fine writer.

    You guys are going to put that restaurant out of business! I'm amazed that any of the all-you-can-eat restaurants you go to in Reno can stay in business. :) Glad you can enjoy such a feast.

  4. Alex always gets good grades on his essays at school.

    One of the things I love about Reno is the abundance of AYCE restaurants. I once had a manager staring at me at an AYCE sushi restaurant. He must have thought I was passing my orders to others. I was particularly hungry on that day. :)
