|Very beautiful Hanbok (traditional Korean clothing) worn by the Greeters upon entering.|
|The base menu, but you will find other goodies. The prices are very low compared to most restaurants, and the food has a homemade effect. This is the closest taste you will get to dining in a Korean-American home.|
Originally, I am from Gainesville (moved there when I was six years old). After High School, my husband and I moved around quite a bit. When I lived in Gainesville last year, I would come to the Gainesville Korean Baptist Church once a week for Korean language lessons. Also, I was lucky enough to be accepted into the Tower Road Branch Library's Language Exchange Program, where I was able to learn from and teach many adult Korean students. If you are interested in this program, please contact Jin Lyons by submitting your resume and completing a formal application at that branch.
Even though I live in Tampa now, I try to visit at least 1-2 times a month to visit my family (who still live there) and meet with my Korean language teacher/friend at the church. Luckily, I have made a great connection and I am able to learn about the culture and food. It was so nice to see happy familiar faces at this event.
