Korea Garden is closed!

Ilana and I got together for dinner and a movie tonight. After The Incredibles (great movie, fantastic animation), we were deciding where to go for dinner and I happened to mention this amazing Korean restaurant in Central Square right off of Green Street. She agreed we should go there.

As I approached the door of the restaurant something didn't quite feel right. We walked inside and I noticed they had redecorated. Then I picked up the menu and knew right away something was horribly wrong. This menu was for a Thai restaurant. Thai, not Korean. I stood up, muttering something about how this was wrong, terribly wrong. I just couldn't bring myself to eat there under new ownership -- it's too soon -- so we left. But I did ask the new owner about the change. He told me Korea Garden went out of business two months ago and this new guy bought the place.

I'm sad. Korea Garden was a gigazillion times better than the other Korean places in town. (Koreana just plain sucks, and there are only a couple of dishes at Kaya that I like.) Korea Garden was amongst my favorite restaurants of any cuisine in Boston (along with Ajanta, Roddhee, House of Siam, Helmand's, and Sesame). I am going to miss their gyoza (steamed or pan-fried), yukejang soup, and pork bulgogi.

I’m bummed I didn’t know about it when it was open; I love Korean food.

Seoul Kitchen in Brighton is OK, or at least it was when I lived there a couple of years ago. However, Koreana is not. Stay away from Koreana! And there's a good Korean restaurant here in Chinatown, though I forget its name.

But pork bulgogi is just wrong. It's all about the beef!

I agree that Koreana is horrible. I've eaten there only once and I wasn't able to finish my dish.

Now I'm confused. I thought you said you didn't like Seoul food ... but it must have been soul food.

I've never said any such thing, whether you're thinking of gyozas and bulgogi or okra, greens, and gumbo.

Of course you probably said no such thing. I simply needed a lead-in for the pun, feeble as it was.

Was that your sole reason?

You're floundering around seeking an ulterior motive unless you're just doing it for the hell of it (halibut).

Okay, you've hit bottom with that flounder pun. Those puns are dead in the water -- that fishiness won't float here. (Is that possible?)

You started it with "sole" and I couldn't leave it alone.
