This Londoner goes Korean in Abu Dhabi - #AdventuresOfAFussyEater

Guess who finally took their Korean obsession one step further...

...Yep after months of binge watching K Dramas and throwing random Korean words at my brothers I finally took myself (and dragged my left toe along) to a Korean restaurant, Manna Land. Imagine how fated it felt when the posters to my left in the restaurant were of Kim Woo Bin... Signed too *gasps* *Fan girlingggg so hard right now*

Quick Disclaimer...I'm a super fussy eater. I'm what you call "rice n stew". I really don't do experimenting and all that, so this was a HUUUGGEEE deal for me.

Our side dishes from Top Right - Egg plant (which I didn't try), Tofu, Fried Pumpkin (turns out I don't like pumpkin). Bottom Right - Kimchi (I wanted to, just couldnt bring myself to try after Aishah pulled a face), Diced cucumber and carrots, Spinach (My Fave! Tasted like cold spicy efo)

Anywhoos not one for taking risks... I ended up shooting myself in the foot and getting a simple meal. Then coveting (quick plug, if you haven't seen my fashion story by now really where've you been?)  my counterparts meal.

 It's all so fresh and colourful. In front is Aishah's Daksal Bulgogi. Thinly sliced chicken marinated in a special sauce. Further back is my Chicken Bokumbap... fried rice specially made without the veggies - How plain Nimz, how plain

I really hate hating what I eat... so I always play it safe. Especially when I'm paying for it and it's for iftaar... fastest way to ruin my mood is to give me dead food for iftaar! I'll just cry.

My veggie less Chicken Bokumpap... it tasted soo good. I did myself a huge injustice by not trying something riskier. 

But buyers remorse is so real guysss!!!

I really wanted to try the beef dumpling soup...but I didn't want to hate it, so I went for trusty rice. Y'all already know what I'm getting next time...

Green Apple and Lemon, Aishah had some watermelon something something... at this point who cares what Aishah had right? She clearly won the better meal competition... *le sigh*

YO! My drink banged!!! Freshly squeezed Green Apple and Lemon juice... t'was soooo refreshing! Perfect iftaar drink

More pics and that...

Definitely renewing my #TeamTryNewThings subscription...

And it's off to the Korean Cultural Centre next for this K-Obssessed Gal... I can't get enough of em I tell ya
