Behind the Scenes

"Still singing in my head 🌸🐚🌸 Thanks to @blainewetzel and the crew at @willowsinn for welcoming us into your home on the first night of the season. Truly a beautiful place and a beautiful experience, a gorgeous expression of terroir and spirit. We wanted to make sure we got back before the restaurants open, and I'm so happy we could make it happen.

"In bed, trying to sleep, dreaming of mandu & soondubu jigae. Hard to believe it's been almost a year since our trip to Korea. Wish I'd bought the other set of round-trip tickets I tried to buy before we even came home. πŸ‡°πŸ‡·πŸ‡°πŸ‡·πŸ‡°πŸ‡·πŸ‡°πŸ‡·πŸ‡°πŸ‡·πŸ‡°πŸ‡·πŸ‡°πŸ‡·πŸ‡°πŸ‡·πŸ‡°πŸ‡·πŸ‡°πŸ‡· . . . . . . #koreanfood #mandu #soondubu #soondubujigae #morebanchanplease #barleytea #pdxeats #eaterpdx #eater #beavertonoregon #eatingintheburbs #tastespotting #tastingtable #feedfeed #eeeeeats #eatingfortheinsta #buzzfeast #munchies #bonappetitmag #foodandwine #koreatown"

"On new year's eve, @paulacakers gave me this coconut soft serve as a present after my meal at @nongskhaomangai and I FREAKED OUT. If you haven't had this before, you're missing out. I'm mourning all the coconut soft serve I could've been eating after my khao man gai all these years. It's so creamy and not too sweet and just a little salty. The crunchy coconut on top is explosive. It's so fun when such simple things are perfect. Thanks, @paulacakers , for the timely reminder to appreciate small things and be a kinder and more giving person. Happy new year πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰ . . . . . . #khaomangai #icecream #softserve #nongskhaomangai #coconutsoftserve #pdxeats #eaterpdx #eater #jbfa #foodandwine #bonappetitmag #bombesquad #foodwinewomen #eeeeeats #feedfeed #buzzfeast #yum"
