We can't thank our friends, family and fans enough for coming out to our inaugural Launch Party on September 4. Over 120 people showed up for a fun-filled evening of good eats, giveaways and games.
Chef Esther Choi (the host with the most) of mokbar put together an incredible sampling menu featuring a cold ramen salad, bibimboppers (deep fried bibimbop rice balls stuffed with cheese and served with a kimchi bechamel sauce), mini Korean hot dogs, topped with bacon and chilis as well as her version of tteokbuki (crispy rice cakes in a spicy gochujang sauce).
We gave away a ton of gear (one of each shirt), 3 different kinds of artisanal kimchi, animal themed iPhone cases (from our friends at Anicase) and much more. And we even had Korean food trivia.
Thanks to everyone for making the event a huge success. We had a blast meeting and hanging with all of you and can't wait to see you soon.
