As I mentioned earlier, my birthday was awhile ago and I love to celebrate it. It's an excuse to go out to eat delicious food with friends and family. Okay, so I do that on a normal basis. But for birthdays, I tend to pick nicer restaurants or places best visited as a group. So when the Feisty Foodie asked me where I would like to celebrate my birthday, I immediately answered Sik Gaek. I've been eyeing their seafood hot pot for a long time now and this would work out beautifully. She graciously organized the whole shebang and I found myself in Queens one night to enjoy some food with my FBM friends.
As with any winter birthday, it was really cold out. Props everyone who took the effort and came out in stride. It was much appreciated. And to warm ourselves up, we had watermelon soju ($30) served in, as you can see, a whole watermelon. It wasn't strong whatsoever so it went down very easily. No one became buzzed from it so it seemed kind of like a waste though refreshing.
Again, thanks to everyone for coming out and celebrating with me. I had a really good time!! And a special thanks to Yvo for organizing it. Check out her pictures and write up here.
