On Saturday we decided on the spur of the moment to check out the Salt Lake Farmers Market. It was noon by the time we got there but we had just enough time to let E watch a clown tie balloon animals and grab some lunch. When it was his turn E got a balloon lion but when presented with said lion he promptly decided he was afraid of it and refused to hold it. I think he was afraid it was going to pop. We grabbed some really tasty kebabs for lunch, pushed E on the swings for a while and then headed home. It was really fun but next time I'd like to go a bit earlier in the day. It was brutally hot and delicate flower E broke out in heat rash.
That night N and I went to check out a new Korean restaurant in the Fort Union Area called It's Tofu. While the name seems a little unfortunate it's a nice Korean place, especially for the uninitiated. It's decorated nicely and along with the normal menu they give you an album of with pictures of every dish in it. So if you haven't had Korean before but want to try it it's a good place to go.
My tofu soup with side dishes and rice
I'm a sucker for homemade tofu so I decided to try their Soon Dubu soup. It was pretty good but a little less spicy than I expected. We also got a kimchi jun (pancake appetizer) which was really tasty.
It's kind of far from our house so I don't know how often we'll go back but of all the Korean restaurants around here it's the place where I'd take friends unfamiliar with Korean food.
After dinner we headed to Wise Guys comedy club to catch the set of a family friend, Jenna Jones. Jenna was really funny and Keith Stubbs the headliner was good too. I would have enjoyed it more if we hadn't been sitting by some frat-boy type who insisted on loudly bagging on the comedians in an attempt to impress his date. Bleh. Such are the risks at a comedy club I guess.
Overall, it was a great weekend.
