Woohoo for Sam Woo BBQ

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).

This is the OG pork belly, people. Nom nom nom!

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.


  1. I want the combination platter in my mouth.

  2. There is one of these about a block away from our new house...

  3. yeah, I don't think I'd be a fan of large intestines either. oh well, more for someone else!

  4. I know where meat comes from, but I don't think I could see it like that.

  5. Who doesn't love Sammy Woo? He's my homeboy!

  6. <3 sam woo <3
    lots of memories of childhood/adolescence there.

  7. Is it sad that I've never been to a Sam Woo? I'm thinking yes.
