Dinner at Gaonurri in NYC

For Pooja's good-bye (sad face btw :( dinner, we went to Gaonurri for some delicious Korean food.  First of all, the view there is amazing as there are windows all around the restaurant.  There happened also to be some fireworks across the Hudson in Jersey for some wedding, which could not have been more scenic.  All of the food was delicious but we all got pretty full from the appetizers so we didn't get through most of our entrees.  Despite the nice ambiance the prices weren't too terrible.  They do have a great Restaurant Week menu, which I would like to take advantage of when the time comes.  Dan and I meant to come but didn't make it.  Next time.
Haemul Paejan - Scallion Pancake With Market Fresh Seafood-Squid, Calamari and Chopped Clam.  Tasty and full of lots of seafood but could've used more salt

Calamari Salad - Fried Calamari Tossed In Honey Wine Go-Chu-Jang Sauce Served On A Bed Of Seasonal Mixed Greens With Pear Dressing.  By far the BEST THING we had that night.  The calamari was perfectly crisp and the sauce had the perfect balance of sweet, salty and spicy.  The pear dressing and veggies were also super refreshing.

Small order of Japchae - stir-fried glass noodles with seafood.  Tasty and not too greasy but no one though it was the best they've ever had

My Dolsot Bibimbap w/galbi, topped w/fried egg.  Of course.

Chicken Jjim - Braised Chicken Thigh And Breast In Sweet Soy Sauce With Vegetables And Rice Cakes.  Debbie and Pooja shared this.  Both seemed a little perplexed about how it looked and how it was prepared.  It was a little sweet to me but not bad

Free ban chan - not so impressive

My bibimbap mixed up
