It's been a long time since I've talked about some of the local food that I've had while I was here. I've been to a few great places. I've even gone back to The Distillery. I had hot dogs with sauerkraut! The hot dogs were amazing, and sauerkraut's not as bad as I thought it was going to be. I'm always on the quest to try new places (and even willing to revisit some others).
After being in the Atlanta area for so long, I've gotten used to having a few choice places to eat, especially in the way of Asian food and Philly cheese steaks. That's mostly fueled my food conquest here—I want to find good comfort foods that really get me through. And I've found them! One of my favourite haunts recently has been a little Korean place called Kimchi II.
I never think to take a picture of the interior, but it's very simple but stylish. The servers are very nice, and they have a massive TV where you eat. The TV plays different things like Kpop lives, music video clips, and so on. But the overhead system is playing music not relative to what's on the TV. I just thought it was a funny bit to add.
Once again, the servers are very, very nice. When I was with Andy, our server kept checking on us every couple of minutes. His care was very sweet, but it was hilariously ridiculous after a while. They're very warm and accepting. Sometimes they'll ask you if you've had a certain dish before. They do answer any questions you have about the dishes.

Because there aren't usually aren't many people at the restaurant, the wait for food isn't very long at all. The food is hot, delicious, and flavourful. Don't be deceived by my shoddy photography. The portions aren't quite as small as they seem. They're a bit more than enough to fill me up. They hit that limit and go a little over. I haven't had their cold dishes yet, even though it probably would be advised considering the heat these days.
They stay open late until about 10PM, I believe. And when I went at 8PM earlier this month for a late dinner (a treat for myself), I managed to have a conversation or two with one of the servers (her name is Chloe). They always have the same energy. They're very inviting and caring and always check up on you.
식사를 주셔서 감사합니다 !!
Every time I go back to Kimchi II, I feel very welcomed there. I know that I'm going to get a good meal, and the servers are nice enough to engage in conversation. If you do ever go, say hey to Chloe! She's a very nice person, especially.
And remember—tell 'em GDR—or more familiarly, tell 'em Namseuk—sent ya!
