Selections include, beef, chicken and other standard dishes. The buffet side dish bar is very good and plentiful.

Last time I tried a Korean restaurant was about a month ago in Los Angeles, California with my wife and one of my brother for BBQ. It was awesome!

Now in the middle of July, I am meeting my two brothers for lunch and they picked Mom's Tofu House in South San Francisco, California, off of Hwy 101. There's a parking lot and amble spaces for cars. Its been awhile since I traveled down here for lunch when a Vietnamese Restaurant, Ben Tres was next door.

In front of th is eatery, there're three outdoor tables, and luck was with us as the warm sun was shining down on us! Menu is posted on the window and inside. It was a busy day and the server gave us the menu, but we knew what to order: BiBimBop (2) and one fried chicken rice plate.

Soon our orders came. We helped ourselves inside for the utensils and the side Korean vegetable dishes (eat all you can!) Delicious! We enjoyed the wonderful weather, chatted and ate the delicious Korean dishes we ordered.

The bill came to about $35 plus tax, excluding tips. Very reasonable for 3 persons.

If one is ever in the neighborhood, driving on Hwy 101, turn off on Grand Avenue in South San Francisco and you are there! 217 Grand Ave, SSF! Try it! You'll like it!

Another hidden gem; you have to love homestyle restaurants. The place is small and does not have much seating. The food is consistently good. You can't go wrong with most dishes: soups and rice dishes. Some dishes are a bit pricey but you get what you pay for, pure flavorful yumminess!

Went for dinner - tiny place, we snagged the last table. The complimentary appetizers were delicious - some kind of pancake with a tasty sauce. Seven tiny dishes of various vegetable specials - kim chee, seaweed, bean sprouts - very nice. Amazing variety of tofu soup - I had the seafood combination, one of my companions had the pork. Both of us ordered the "medium" amt of spice. Was spicy enough to be wonderfully flavored but not too hot. The other gentleman ordered the "hot" amt of spice and had a red face while consuming his entree but devoured every bite. Heard the Korean BBQ was good, too. Good service. Would definitely recommend.
