What Happened Before & After The Night Before Rice House

Here’s some of what happened before and after the night before Rice House



Had Fun: I relished in all of my free time heading into the Grand Opening of Rice House. I’ve always wanted to be a fun mom. My own momz is a very fun mom.



Shopped: This ladle was too big for me, but I did find one just the right size eventually. You know, for Rice House.



Hated: This was two days before Rice House opened on May 1st. I hated seeing things unfinished but I loved the thrill of it too. We couldn’t have done it alone though.



Loved: Davy’s mom and Noah’s Omi spent her own birthday busting her ass to help us finish up last details at Rice House, the day before the opening. We remembered to get her a birthday cake!



Displayed: Starting up the Rice House Grocery wall…


Opened: This was me, before I gave myself 14 total cuts on two hands on very sharp knives, and bruises on my hips from bumping into shit. But I was still very happy, and am still.



Mommied: Noah will always be my baby, and Rice House his sibling.



Rolled: Lots of sushi to roll on opening day. Little did I know that this would be the easiest day ever, for the rest of my days of rice…


DSC00381Dished: I ran out of sushi to serve, eventually, and had to improvise accordingly.


BrusselsGot to meet a Big Brother fan: From Brussels. I was psyched! Such a sweetheart!


I wish I could dish more, but I’m having a hard time keeping my eyes open. And the bow tie, by the way, was a temporary thing. I could never wear that thing every day.

Until next dish…

Always dishing,

    I am so happy for you. Thank you for sharing. It is so exciting to follow your adventures. It is refreshing to see someone doing something they love and succeeding.

  • Just listened to a podcast by Dom & Colin. They interviewed Jack. It was fun to listen to him talking about the BB4 house & how you cooked EVERY meal. Also told them the brilliance of your game by positioning yourself in that kitchen to view the house/houseguests. You’ve come a long way baby!

  • I hope Rice House is successful beyond your wildest imagination! Looks delicious. Maybe one day I’ll be in the area and get to try it for myself.

  • Thank you for taking the time for the update. I don’t usually speak for others but I’m sure many fans, beside myself, were waiting for a sneak peek of your first week. Wouldn’t ask you though, I knew you were up to your ears with work. Best wishes and enjoy this new adventure – and as your first picture above demonstrates…you’ve just started the ride of your life!

  • Aww Jun, thanks so much for sharing that photo!

    Being at the Rice House opening was so thrilling! You’re the first person I’ve met in real life who even knows what US Big Brother is, or who has an interest in US Survivor, so for that alone, meeting you was really exciting… But the fact that we also share a passion for cooking and that you opened a takeout that serves Korean food, which I’ve been addicted to since last summer, made the whole experience so surreal and perfect.

    I could tell you were extremely happy during the event, and I was honoured to be a part of it! I hope you’ll be able to extend your Korean empire to Brussels at some point (we seriously need more Korean restaurants over here)… BUT FIRST! I wish you a ton of success with Rice House and I can’t wait to come back and taste more of your delicious food!

Feel Free to Dish!
