I enjoyed a tasty lunch at Barn Joo, a Korean gastropub that is known for its farm to table approach with “a touch of Korean soul”. The name means “musical accompaniment” or “drinks accompanied by your meal” in Korean. Sadly, I gave up white rice for Lent so my options were limited. I ended up going with fried udon noodles and galbi (Korean BBQ marinated beef short ribs) — so good! The galbi was tender, fatty, and super flavorful. Will be back for dinner once Lent is over!
