Shots from last week’s surprise Robyn Appreciation Dinner.

This photo by Claire captures Robyn’s surprise just right – I love it!

Group shot here.

At the dinner table: Robyn, Diana, Olia, Lee Anne, Greg, Claire, John and myself.
Location: Arirang in Korea Town.

Why? We couldn’t think of anyone more deserving of a surprise party than Robyn, the sweetest friend anyone could ever ask for. And what better way to celebrate than with communal bowls of noodle soup? ^_^

Between eight people, we shared two massive pancakes, and three even more massive bowls of noodles. It was the perfect amount.

We ordered three different types of noodles. Pictured is the Seafood in the front, and the Vegetable Kar-Jeabe in the back. They’re all topped with the same tangle of vegetables, so look alike till you give it a good mix and unearth all the seafood (clams, shrimp, and octopus) in the former. All the “Kar-Jeabe” noodle soup consists of two types of noodles: Kalguksu (knife-cut noodles) and Sujebi (noodle chunks / torn noodles).

And here is the Chicken Kar-Jeabe. Robyn once wrote about how very chicken-y the broth is. But seriously, you have no ideas JUST HOW chicken-y she means until you try it. Put this on your must-eat list :)

And the two pancakes. First, kimchee and mochi…

…and then the seafood pancake. Mix your own sauce to dip.

After we’re pau eating…time to blow out the candles!

And cut the cake!

Nomnom. From Sugar Sweet Sunshine -> Chocolate Almond Buttercream with Chocolate Cake. FYI, yes we did consider opting for a huge bucket of banana pudding in place of cake, but cake route seemed more appropriate ^_^

Happy Saturday!
