Gimme Shelter at Korea House

Quick blog before my workday begins... K.G. and I dined at Korea House on Charlotte Pike last night and it was super fine!

Alert to all Nashvillians who like Asian food and don't mind trying weird pickled vegetables: Go to Korea House, order #7, the beef barbecue, and enjoy mixing the beef with all the dozen tiny bowls of goodies they bring you and wrapping it into huge fronds of romaine lettuce.

If you aren't in Nashville and want something Asian-inspired besides Pad Thai or General Tso's Chicken, give Korean a try. The last time I had it, I was in San Francisco with friends E.H. and V.H. (who's in Indonesia now, BTW, and I am sure is having some great food adventures of her own!), and it was a little shoe leather-tasting bad experience.

Happy Wednesday...


  1. Nice to see your words again.
    Always fun to read adventures with food!!

  2. I'm thinking Korean food will be on the menu again sometime.

  3. I thought Korea House was on Edmondson Pike just off Nolensville Road - do you mean the sushi place, forget the name of it, at the east end of Nashville West by the bowling alley?

  4. Korea House is at 6410 Charlotte Pike # 108. The place near the bowling alley/Big Lots is not Korea House, I don't know the name of it but I think it's Japanese/Thai. ????

One of my favorite pastimes is to visit the library & peruse new and old cookbooks.

I think this is probably most definitely violating copyright law, but when I check out cookbooks and find recipes that I like, I'll copy them and file them in my almighty 3-ring green food binder. This binder holds recipes torn from magazines and newspapers, family recipes emailed and handwritten, takeout menus, and paper menus from restaurants we've visited and enjoyed. It's my big book of food awesomeness, and I'm always in search of items to keep it growing.

When a friend mentioned the Food52 Cookbook Club on Facebook, I figured it would be a fun way to experiment with foods I might not normally cook, and to expand my horizons beyond the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Library stacks.

The Best Way to Keep Cannoli Fresh and Other Baltimore Stories

My mom and step-dad were up visiting for Thanksgiving and after gorging ourselves on turkey and the sites of D.C., I took them on a day-trip to Baltimore.

After a visit to my mom's favorite museum (she's a mosaic artist), we aimed for lunch at Rocket to Venus in Hampden. It was closed for lunch, but our trip up Charles St. wasn't for naught - we stumbled onto residents of 34th St. setting up their Christmas displays! This street is Christmas at its best, or worst, depending on your tolerance/interest in all things Christmas. Erin teases me for being a scrooge, but I have to admit, lights and what-not are nice at this cold and dark time of year.

After a brief walk through Hampden, we aimed for lunch at Kooper's Tavern in Fells Point. The tavern was most certainly open, with rowdy sports fans packing the bar and even spilling onto the sidewalk for fresh-shucked oysters. (My friend Gideon would have camped out right there for their Chincoteagues!) After some deliberati…

Oh Hygge Yes: Soups for Making Your 2018 Cozy & Warm

On the first day of 2018, the scene is set. 

The fireplace is blazing. Our dog Loretta is curled up on the love seat next to me. Candles on the mantle are flickering. My small-ish second glass of red wine blooms warmly with each sip.

There's no Netflix on the TV.  No radio blaring the latest news.  

Quiet. Gentle. Cozy. 

I'll have a second and third helping of this in 2018, please and thank you.
