- B.H. Chung looks like crap from the outside (especially with the awful sign), but inside, it is airy, comfortable, and clean, with lots of natural light.
- The menu is extensive and has a lot of appealing choices. Good for groups that don’t know what they want to eat.
- The katsu curry is DELICIOUS in a simple, mom & pop cafe kind of way. The katsu on it has crispy breading, which makes it extra-yummy, and the curry itself is well-seasoned, with a slight hint of cinnamonyness. It’s the best Asian-style curry rice I’ve had outside the house. The portion-size was also ginormous, so it’s perfect to split with a friend. (Note: our craving for this katsu curry drove us back to B.H. Chung three days later.) (Miko)
- The katsudon is good, especially with the zucchini, but it’s a little on the bland side.
- The gyoza tastes nice, but it’s not amazing.
- The stew is also fine, but the fishy taste is a little overpowering. There are much better versions of this dish at both of the Tofu Houses.
- The server is extremely handsome and pleasant. We call him “the son” because the place has a family-owned vibe, but we have no idea if any of the employees are actually related to each other. He is really quick to notice if we need water refills.
- This is the restaurant that inspired the idea of the “one-dish wonder” (which Spicy City also qualifies as)–a place that probably wouldn’t wow us except for that one dish that we HAVE TO come back for.

I've never seen Katsu Curry like that before! Must try. Actually, half these places on your blog I never heard of! haha 🙂
And I like the one-dish wonder label/tag. Might copy that… 😉
We'd never heard of half these places either…which is why we decided to do this! We've definitely found a lot of awesome stuff we never would have before.
