We have just safely returned from our visit to see the Grandson (and his mom and dad as well, of course). As we reflect on how Zeke has grown and developed over the past year, we also remember our food adventures in the State of Washington. While we were there only a week, and did not scratch the surface, we did get to sample tastes of the local Korean community. Now to be more specific, we stayed in the community of Lakewood, Washington, adjacent to Tacoma. Lakewood has a large Korean Community. Of course, this includes groceries and restaurants.
This was our third trip to this part of Washington, and we had time to check out the community in a little more detail. We had plenty of Korean restaurants to choose from, some specializing in Korean BBQ, others more traditional. For this trip, we choose to take everybody out to Ho Soon Yi Restaurant, in Lakewood.
You will find at Ho Soon Yi, a traditional Korean Restaurant, with many delicious options. Portions are generous, with numerous side dishes (Banchan) for the table to choose from. I, had, the Bibimbap, in the hot stone bowl. Everybody enjoyed their dishes, even little Zeke seemed to like the Anchovies and peanuts. Our server was friendly and attentive.
We all gave Ho Soon Yi two thumbs up, and will be getting a return engagement on our next trip to Lakewood.
I should add we didn’t just eat Korean on our trip, but that is for another blog post!
