mel, jay, james, and i went out to a jukumi place in our neighborhood the other night.jukumi is like stir fried baby octopus with onions and an extremely spicy sauce, and while that may sound sketchy, it's one of my favorite korean meals.

[once everything is all cooked, you wrap pieces of jukumi with raddish into a sesame leaf. NOM NOM NOM.]

then, with a relatively stuffed belly, you dive into a heap of rice with seaweed, fish eggs, and butter.
