Day 31: Around the World – Food Edition

Today was one of the few Saturdays without an MSBA event.  Everyone took the day to sleep in as much as possible.  After a late night of talking and watching television, I woke up around noon. Mike, Tee, and I sat in the common room of our suite and talked about the previous night and the sports news that was being talked about on ESPN, such as Bryce Harper being named as an injury replacement for the All-Star Game in Kansas City.

Later in the afternoon, I decided to go get pizza from this place that Brandon recommended called Artichoke Basille’s.  This place struck a note with me because there used to be a pizza place on Franklin Street in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, where I go to school, that was called Artichoke and Basil Pizza.  The place was sued by a pizza place in New York for trademark reasons.  I had the seen this place earlier in the summer and immediately thought to myself that this must be the place that sued one of my favorites places on Franklin Street.  I will admit that Artichoke Basille’s was very good!  The pizza may have been $5 a slice, but the slices were massive and 1 slice is plenty for a meal.
That night, Tee invited me to go to Korea Town, which is really 1 street (32nd Street between 4th and 5th Avenue).  I have had Korean food before not very much, so I trusted Tee’s decision for where to go.  We ended up going to this Korean buffet, where you paid by the pound.  The food was very good and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who likes Korean food or even someone who has never had Korean food before.
