Bulgogi Update

I went with the recipe from epicurious.com and it turned out great.

I have to confess my meal lacked kimchi.  I didn’t make it down to Koreana Plaza on Telegraph in time.  I’ve never been, but supposedly Koreana (formerly Pusan Market) is the place to go for all your Korean specialty food needs.  Still, my bulgogi was a hit.  I splurged and got expensive ribeye from Enzo’s, and had them do the extra-thin-slicing there.  My knife skills are still at the amateur level. 

I did the table up with the “good” china, silver, crystal, candles, and surprise balls from Tail of the Yak, but none of the pictures turned out well.  I think I had the ISO turned all the way up, because they look grainy ???  Here’s the only one that looks any good:
