Game Fair & Korean Dinner

Hi there^^

Last sunday my friend Ray and I went to the Game Fair in Essen. It was really huge and you found every kind of game there: parlour games, videogames, trading card games, but also books, clothes and dvds, especially in the Fantasy Hall. There was also a great area for comics where you could also find mangas and merchandise.

But the area für trading cards was really huge. Pokémon and Yu-Gi-Oh! had their own areas where you could buy cards and play against each other.

The Pokémon & Yu-Gi-Oh! Trading Card areas

Special for me was the large amount of Star Wars. I love Star Wars and surprisingly I saw it everywhere! Books and figures were mainly to be seen and I couldn’t help but buy a special collection^.^

But the best thing was a moving R2-D2 in original size! So cute X3 The cardboard standup of Darth Maul was also cool.

We took a rest in a connecting corridor where a stand of HARIBO (a firm which produces/sells wine gum) was located. On a long table every kind of Haribo wine gum was offered. After looking to long at it, Ray finally had to buy some *lol*

But it was interesting to watch the people at the stand and which were passing by through the corridor. Some of them had such large bags with them or even a trolley bag.
In one hall we also found some funny korean games. One named 'ChopChop' was about getting plastic fruits with chopsticks out of a bowl XD


After a few ours Ray and I finally left the Fair. It was nice and maybe next year we go there again.

But this wasn’t the end of the day! Close to the fair hall a Korean restaurant is located, so we took the chance to taste it^^
The restaurant ‘SaRangBang’ looked really nice from the out- and inside. They even had little birds in a cage and two turtles in a aquarium (our table was directly next to it, the turtles were so cute^.^). It was very comfortable.

The menu is not so large but the offer is still quite good and the prices are normal. Ray chose baked chicken with sweet and sour sauce, I wanted to taste vegetarian Bi bim bab (vegetables made and served in a special pot) but it was sold-out (I am cursed… T.T). So I tried the chicken curry. Of course both got along with a pot of rice^.~
And it was so delicious! I couldn’t expect how the curry would taste because I always eat Thai or Indian curry but it was great and really not so fatty.

our dinner X3
So I can really recommend the restaurant!
This was also the perfect end of a nice day.
