Our first visit there we ordered bul nak ji jeongol (beef and octopus casserole). It basically a stew with beef, octopus pieces, udon noodle and zucchini. Very nice and a bit spicy. This time we ordered gamja tang jeongol (pork bone with potato stew). This order is pretty big and good for at least 2 people (or more). The lady took our order and left to prepare the stew. She came back with a portable stove and utensils. She also brought us our side dishes (ban chan). I was hungry so I started to chew on the side dishes.

The vineyard itself is on a huge area with lots of green rolling mountain surrounding it. It's hard to believe that California is in drought right now. We walked passed the restaurant and was wondering where to go when we saw a group of other people that we recognized and we sort of followed them. We walked through a structure that looked like warehouse but then we saw huge wooden barrels stacked up. And some of the barrels were huge that could fit like a few adults. No kidding. I could walk into the barrel without bending down.

Though occupied the corner, once we went inside, it's not very spacious and part of it was used for kitchen. An older lady (maybe the owner) sat us on a table by the window. There were also seating area around the bar. I estimated that the place could only fit 25 people. And at the moment, it was about 85% full.

So, we walked pass this huge Walgreens and based on my experience it usually sells some sort of t-shirts, But this is Union Square in SF so this Walgreens caters to visitors as well. It has this area filled with any type of souvenirs eg. key chains, snow globes, t-shirts, sweatshirts, pencils, pens, etc. And some of the souvenirs there were unique and couldn't be found anywhere else in the area. And the price was competitive as well. Some of the similar items were cheaper at Walgreens than the other store down the road.

When we got there it was 7 pm. We actually called ahead to make reservation and I was pleasantly surprised that they did take reservation and actually kept it. ha..ha..The place was about 80% full when we got seated. Not too bad for a weekday night.

When we finally went in the place was actually quite tiny. So the tables were like crammed close to each other. But the place looked pretty new and clean. The tables and chairs were dark wooden chairs. And they were pretty high tech. The lady that took our orders used a tablet to send the orders to the kitchen. Maybe that's why some orders came out pretty fast.

Well, it's not quite a feast, to be honest. But it's a bit more different than we normal have. Take a look.
