The in-flight service was pretty good.

We were frequent to Korean BCD Tofu House in Irvine, CA.
What are some prices for a combO order? I'm curious. I went out for lunch the other day. I had a steak, fries, coleslaw, garlic toast and a Rickard's Red draft plus a Guinness pint. Cost me $42 including a tip.

I also may have missed m/any references to any fruits, which are still considered a food group.
Green Plums
Cherries
Quinces
Apricots
Very good time to be buying California artichokes, though I've sometimes had to pay as much as $5/ea.

So far, no Colorado cherries, and the California stuff that I've seen has looked sorta "meh".

When it's done right, mackerel grilled with a bit of salt is a favorite dish of mine. When it's done wrong, mackerel can be all the nastiness that people dread about fish. Probably wouldn't want to cook it at home, at least not indoors, because it has a strong fishy odor in the best of times.

California cherries came early this year due to the milder/hotter weather, as was reported in the news. Local prices are about $2.89 and declining.
Ditto for Green (sour) Plums but their season lasts but a week.
If you are a fruit lover, try not to read the origin or what it takes to get produce to YOUR market, year around.
Suddenly, you will realize that "fresh" has become relative word!

And ~$28.49 for round trip to the restaurant.o_O
Naw...lol. Cost a couple of bucks at most. I've seen Korean restaurants in my area. I rarely go out for meals though. I cook. I like it. :D

Depends on what we're talking about, but IME, pears, pineapples, tomatoes and cherries suck if picked too green, and the best way to get properly ripened stuff is from local sources i.e., farmer's markets. USA supermarkets treat produce mostly as a logistics problem rather than something that should taste good. I like Costco as much as the next person, but I don't buy pears there.

Was kind of surprised that hot tea with every meal is not a given in Korea as it is in Japan. At the time of my visit (April 2013) weather was still a little bit cool, but heaters were turned off, and ice water was the rule rather than the exception.

I see synthetic chicken made from processed plants, but no one seems to be making synthetic broccoli yet. I imagine some facsimile of broccoli could be made from animal products so that carnivores could satisfy their cravings once in a while.

Your humor may someday make you wealthy and your wallet fat (or vice versa or both).
Keep working that synthetic-broccoli idea but don't forget to use smilies when appropriate.;)
