Yay! Huntsville has a new Korean Fusion Restaurant and it’s wonderful! Last night I had the pleasure of visiting a tasting event at a brand new restaurant: Big Oh’s.
One of the perks of having a food blog, you get invited to cool gigs and people feed you. Seriously, if you have a food blog you know what I’m talking about and if you don’t have one you should, so you’ll know what I’m talking about.My husband has recently become a workaholic so I went to the tasting with my dear friend Deidre. I couldn’t have asked for a better date: good conversation, excellent food, a lively atmosphere, and a compassionate ear for when I complained about my workaholic husband. We sat at a small two person table (it’s more intimate that way), but a short time later I saw two friends I knew: Aska and Nico. Big Oh’s was packed and there were no tables left, so I invited Aska and Nico to join our little table. We crammed around the 2 person table, our elbows knocking into our neighbors and kicking each other every time we shifted, but we were cozy.Then a mutual friend Amanda comes in and we thought, What the hell, and crammed her into the mix. As the evening wound down plenty of seats and tables opened up, but we stayed in our tight formation enjoying the food and company. At the end the owners even jointed the mix and our table for two became of table of 7!It was wonderfully fun and I can honestly say that Big Oh’s was great, with excellent food (the Bacon Kimchi was to die for) and pleasant ambience. Everyone from the staff and owners to the invitees and guests were happy and friendly. I’m looking forward to going back.This time my photos did not do the food justice. I was woefully unprepared, (no flash, no tripod, no reflector, etc.) but I can say that there were piles upon piles of food when we started and as we were leaving I noticed there was almost nothing left, aside from a platter of veggies and who’s going to pick vegetables over bacon kimchi.
