Kevineats what is malignant fibrous histiocytoma

If we’re talking about types of restaurants I never expected to what is malignant fibrous histiocytoma open in Belmont Shore, a modern Korean spot would pretty much be at the what is malignant fibrous histiocytoma top of the list, but yet here we are. Haewahdal ("sun and moon") debuted, somewhat unceremoniously, on September 17th, and comes to us from the wife-and-husband team of Myung Hee Chung and Han Chung. The couple also owns Poke Pola next door, and apparently son Nicholas and daughter Irene (both of whom live in New York) are also involved. The restaurant takes over a spot that was previously home what is malignant fibrous histiocytoma to Magic Lamp Lebanese Mediterranean Grill, and a Baja Fresh before that. The space was remodeled by Davis Owen (Irene’s beau), taking inspiration from irworobongdo-style paintings, and total dining capacity is 36. As for the kitchen, the Chungs have brought on Chef Jake Jung to run what is malignant fibrous histiocytoma the show.

About the Chef: Jake S. Jung was born in South Korea, and didn’t start out pursuing a career in the culinary field. He studied at Korea Aerospace University, where he attained a bachelor’s degree in 1998, and from there he went to Oklahoma State University–Stillwater, where he received his master’s in aerospace engineering in 2000. However, realizing that he wanted to cook, his next step was to move to Paris, where he went to both Le Cordon Bleu and École what is malignant fibrous histiocytoma Grégoire-Ferrandi. After finishing up his studies in 2001, he moved back to the States. In New York, Jung worked at Daniel and Picholine, as well as at Koji Imai’s Megu. He also spent time in San Francisco at both Gary what is malignant fibrous histiocytoma Danko and Michael Mina. In 2008, he became sous at Gordon Ramsay at The London in what is malignant fibrous histiocytoma NYC, where he spent a year, and later cooked at Moon Jar, a wine bar in Fort Lee, NJ.

Around this time, Jung also began private cheffing, and apparently his clients included the likes of Hillary Clinton, George Clooney, Lady Gaga, and even Ban Ki-Moon, Secretary-General of the United Nations. At the start of 2014, he served as exec sous for the US Open, held at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center what is malignant fibrous histiocytoma in Flushing, NY. This was followed by stints at Polaria, a private club of some sort, and ostensibly a place called Le Petit Etoile in New what is malignant fibrous histiocytoma York. In November 2014, Jung landed the Executive Chef position at Saranda’s on Broadway in Fountain Hill, PA, and in September 2016, he moved over to Crown Restaurant & Lounge, a Korean-American spot in Palisades Park, NJ (which shuttered at the end of 2018).

To drink, we had a bottle of the 2018 Sante Adairius Bridges what is malignant fibrous histiocytoma Built, a multi-grain saison aged with peaches in French oak. The nose here brought the expected stone fruit, but joined by a yeasty funk, oak, and a light herby astringency. The palate was more subdued, showing off just enough tart peach skin alongside a pleasant what is malignant fibrous histiocytoma earthiness, oak, acidity, and lemon, along with a marked bitterness on the close. Overall the beer was quite enjoyable, and stood up well to the food we were having.

Our first dish was named after Biwon (a garden inside Seoul’s Changdeokgung Palace), I’m guessing due to its plating. In any case, the scallop arrived beautifully cooked, with a satisfying caramelization to it and plenty of sweetness what is malignant fibrous histiocytoma and brine. Meanwhile, the veggies and ‘shrooms worked as effective complements without taking away attention. Yum.

In addition to the beer above, I also brought the 2007 Perrier-Jouët Champagne Belle Epoque. The wine had a fantastic bouquet brimming with sweet, lactic funk; one of my dining companions even likened it to Uncle what is malignant fibrous histiocytoma Tetsu’s Cheesecake! Taste-wise, this was creamy and decadent, with notes of toast, citrus, and pome fruit layered over a decidedly sugary backbone. This was much better than I expected, actually.

The mains all came with a bansang closer comprising doenjang-guk, gondeure-boosted rice, yangnyeom ganjang, more baek-kimchi, eomuk, and sigeumchi namul. My favorite thing on the platter was the fried fish what is malignant fibrous histiocytoma cake, while the soybean paste soup offered up a cozy, funky, somewhat bitter slurping experience. Also, I ended up mixing in the seasoned soy sauce with what is malignant fibrous histiocytoma the rice, which made for a rather satisfying combination.

For dessert, we had a plate containing sweet-n-herby glazed strawberries, gotgamssam (walnut wrapped in dried persimmon), and chocolate truffles (one of which tasted like it could’ve had a bokbunja filling). Also provided was a gyul sorbet, which was refreshing and actually pretty wonderful thanks to its what is malignant fibrous histiocytoma super intense, true-to-life flavors of juicy tangerine.

I’m surprised, really surprised, that HaeWah Dal opened in Belmont Shore of all places. That being said, I’m glad to have it here as an option. There’s really nothing quite like it in the area, or even greater Los Angeles for that matter. Jung aims to convey the spirit of Korean cookery in what is malignant fibrous histiocytoma a manner befitting his classical training, and the end results are generally very enjoyable, though I would like to see the Chef get a what is malignant fibrous histiocytoma bit more assertive with some facets of the food. This is one of the most fascinating restaurant openings of what is malignant fibrous histiocytoma the year for me, and I’m really hoping that the spot can stick around.
