Sam Woo BBQ is an institution in Southern California. I don't even know how many locations there are. Probably a dozen. I've eaten at four of them. These photos are from a visit to the San Gabriel restaurant in the 99 Ranch Plaza (140 W. Valley Boulevard).
I've loved roasted hanging meat since I was a child. Is that weird?
House special pork with preserved vegetable ($6.50).
Sam Woo Combination Platter ($16.95).
Not a fan of the chicken and the large intestines, but everything else on the plate is great.
Beef chow fun with tender greens ($5.75), ong choy with bean curd sauce ($7.95), and tofu with spicy pepper and salt ($6.95).
All quite tasty.
Reliable. Good prices. Fast. Winner.
