70 Bobcha Taste of Korea recently replaced Moby Dick and Sushi Bar Kazumi. I first heard about it from mmm-yoso. We were in the area and weren’t originally planning on eating here, but when our lunch plans fell through, we noticed this was already open, so we decided to try it out. I was surprised at the quick turnaround, but once inside, it looked almost exactly the same.

The sushi bar was still there, as well as the fridge cases (now empty) that used to hold the fresh fish selection for Moby Dick. The tables were all the same too, there was just some small changes to the decor, adding some curtains and paintings.

The menu of course is different, offering a variety of Korean dishes.

I was happy to see a few dishes on the specials menu that I haven’t seen offered at many other Korean places in San Diego.

Complimentary banchan

The selection was a little small and nothing was particularly memorable.

Stir Fry Kimchi with Tofu

This was Mr. K’s choice. Warm kimchi was accompanied by cold raw tofu topped with sesame seeds. I though this dish was just alright and something I could easily make at home.

Strawberries are in season! I can’t resist buying them whenever I go grocery shopping, though I’ve been buying more than I can eat. Oops.

I know I’ve made strawberry mug cakes before (regular and lightened), but this one is a little different. I added heavy cream to the batter, giving the cake a cream flavor. I really enjoyed this sweet combination of cream cake with strawberries. You can even add some fresh whipped cream and strawberries on top too.

I haven’t yet had the pleasure of visiting New Orleans, so I haven’t stepped inside Sucré . But I got a taste of their famous macarons recently when they offered to send me a box and offered a box to one lucky reader too.

You know how much I love macarons right? I mean I spent half my honeymoon hunting down macarons. Sucré makes all sorts of sweets, but their macarons are one of their featured items and they ship their macarons nationwide.

I was so excited when my package arrived. The box itself is just gorgeous. I plan on keeping it to store things. Inside were rows and rows of colorful macarons. I received a signature 15 piece box, which contains eight flavors: Pecan, Chocolate, Salted Caramel, Almond, Pistachio, Strawberry, Hazelnut, and Bananas Foster.
