Kimchi Mari Guksu

at Bon-Ga (본가)
with Wife, Dominic, and my parents
This dish, specifically the one at this restaurant, was featured on two prior posts last season (see 1.011 Kimchi Mari Guksu), so I won't describe it again here. Looking back, it's probably the single dish, the one at this restaurant, that I've eaten in whole or at least tasted on the most occasions in recent years. After all, it's the best menu item at our favorite neighborhood restaurant.
And now, my father insists on it every time he's in the neighborhood. The problem is, the restaurant only has a handful of menu options, so I need to be careful not to get stuck having to repeat myself.
Anyway, the noodles are usually excellent, but something was off tonight. Even Dominic, who isn't very familiar with the dish, it being a bit spicy for a 3-year-old, declared after one bite that the noodles were "boring."
