Every time we go to Green Zone, we swear that we're going to try one of the other restaurants in the strip mall, but we never do. It's hard to pass up the passion fruit iced tea.
But we finally broke our habit this week and set foot into B.J. Tofu House (534 E. Valley Avenue, San Gabriel).
The place could definitely use a makeover, but the prices were palatable.
Complimentary tea. If you want it hot, your server will put it in the microwave.
You can get non-tofu dishes if you like. See? That's Bax's chicken bulgogi.
My dumpling soon tofu was surprisingly good. I didn't have high expectations.
Even the rice with corn was sort of tasty. I think must've been hungry.
This typical Korean post-meal gum lost its charm after all of 10 seconds.
Am I happy to have tried B.J. Tofu? Yes. Decent food for a decent price. The ambiance was terrible, though. I felt like I was eating in a dingy storage closet.
