This week we finally had our first Kogi truck experience. Have you heard of this? Korean/Mexican fusion — Kalbi tacos & burritos, Kimchi quesadillas. These trucks travel around the greater Los Angeles/Orange County area, staying only for a few hours at a time before they drive off to the next location on their schedule. They happened to be stationed a few blocks from us on our date night, so we stood in line, eager to see if it was really as great as they say it is.
I have to admit, it was yummy. The meat was marinated to perfection & the smell of Korean BBQ wafting out of that truck was enough to market itself. The portions are smaller than what we’re used to getting from authentic Mexican places in San Diego, but the prices are relatively cheap.
The line was pretty hefty (maybe 30 people were waiting there before the truck even arrived), so we stayed until sundown. Ate out of trays on the sidewalk, juices running down our hands. Delicious!
After dinner S drove us over to the monster Goodwill by our house. I say monster, because it’s seriously the biggest Goodwill I’ve ever seen — shelves and shelves of houseware items, racks and racks of old clothes. He knew that I’d been wanting to do more thrifting but hadn’t even had the chance to run my normal errands, much less, shop for pleasure.
I came away with some beautiful hidden treasures that I’ll share tomorrow, but check out these big ticket items I saw when I first walked in:
I so so so badly wanted to salvage that vintage desk/chest on the right. It would look awesome with a little restoration. But S reminded me that 1) we’re moving in a couple months & will be storing most of our furniture and 2) I don’t know how to restore furniture. Oh yeah.
Still. I think I can learn. If it’s still there next time, I may just have to learn… What do you think? Is it salvage-worthy?
