Hannah Hosts Lisa And Goes To Visit CSULB 4/18/2013

Nothing Else Counts In This World!   

Out To Dinner We Go

Lisa took a tour of the CSULB campus. The hilltop portion on the 322-acre campus overlooks the Pacific Ocean. Eighty permanent buildings house the various colleges, 63 academic departments and programs, 24 centers, four institutes and four clinics.

The striking beauty of the campus owes much to the planting of 3,200 Helen Borcher flowering peach trees that were donated by the citizens of Long Beach. Secluded landscape areas and buildings of appropriate scale help maintain a learning environment that encourages small group identification and personal privacy in the midst of 37,000 individuals sharing the same site, on what is essentially a large urban campus.

Simply great food and excellent service!

Octopus Carpaccio - Korean food is so very pretty

Did You Know? - Carpaccio is the international name of a typical Italian dish made with raw meat. The dish was proposed with this name for the first time in Venice, at the time of an exhibition dedicated to Venetian painter Vittore Carpaccio which took place around 1950.

The diffusion and the name of this typical dish from Piedmont called the "Carne cruda all'Albese" (which was considered only a starter and never a main course) is due to Giuseppe Cipriani, founder of Harry's Bar in Venice, who prepared the dish for the countess Amalia Nani Mocenigo ] when he learned that the doctors had recommended that she eat raw meat.

Inspired by the paintings by Vittore Carpaccio – the Venetian painter known for the tones of his reds and whites – composed the dish that today we all know by the name of "Carpaccio".

Eat dessert first???? Sure!

Sue did the Bibimbop

Did You Know? - Bibimbap (비빔밥, Korean pronunciation: [pibimp͈ap̚]) is a signature Korean dish. The word literally means "mixed rice". Bibimbap is served as a bowl of warm white rice topped with namul (sautéed and seasoned vegetables) and gochujang (chili pepper paste). A raw or fried egg and sliced meat (usually beef) are common additions. The ingredients are stirred together thoroughly just before eating. It can be served either cold or hot.

In Korea, Jeonju, Jinju, and Tongyeong are especially famous for their versions of bibimbap In 2011, it was listed at number 40 on the World's 50 most delicious foods readers' poll compiled by CNN Travel.

A variation of this dish, dolsot bibimbap (돌솥 비빔밥, dolsot meaning "stone pot"), is served in a very hot stone bowl in which a raw egg is cooked against the sides of the bowl. The bowl is so hot that anything that touches it sizzles for minutes. Before the rice is placed in the bowl, the bottom of the bowl is coated with sesame oil, making the layer of the rice touching the bowl golden brown and crisp.
