When I feel especially hungry, I crave Korean greens, spicy things, and various Greek and Italian foods. (Olive oils, spices, herbed lentils, tangy greek yogurt, lemon, greens etc) Lately, I know i've been cooking plainly, as I am dreaming about huge amounts of sautted bok choy with garlic.
: Yesterday, I was nearly crying about my fav Korean place in Manhattan that shut down 5 years ago. That's sad. It's been 5 years. Maybe more. Maybe it's more like 7.
I think I am going to drive to the Korean market, which is over an hour away and it's pouring rain. But I desperate. I think I have kimchee in the fridge, however. But it's from Storp & Shop and not the same.
But yeah, road trip for me. Do you have a speciality food shop near you? Sometimes that gets me going.
