I decided to try this restaurant for lunch before coming to the airport. The place was owned and run by Korean. First, Soondoobu stew was good with many side dishes. There were two servers. Young Korean guy was grumpy while Korean lady was friendly. This place was very small with too many tables for its size so I wanted to eat and to leave as soon as possible.

Great food along with good customer service. The restaurant is very small. Went for dinner and the place was packed! The dining tables reach the front door so that causes a line out the door. Must try #23 Bul Go Gi Dol Soy...it comes with rice,beef, veggies in a 'very hot' cast iron bowl. It was awesome! Also try the Ya Chae Jun which is egg battered veggie pie..really good! The restaurant is wheelchair accessible. There is a meter parking lot or street meter parking on Grand Ave. the cost for food is a little pricey but worth it!

Mom's has a full and wide range of Korean delicacies other than just tofu dishes. The
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!
