Grandma Tofu & BBQ

Rating: Two thumbs down
Date: 8/4/12
Time in: 1:20 PM
Servers’ recommendations: Seafood pancake, tofu stews and tofu stew combos, BBQ dishes, bibimbap, yuk gae jang, stir-fried squid/octopus
What we ordered: Curry soondobu, yuk gae jang
Number in our party: 2
Final check amount: $22.60
Price per person: $12.52
NOTES
  • Our stews were pretty disappointing.  I (Miko) ordered the curry soondubu, and it tasted strongly of instant chicken bouillon.  Gross.  Jenne reported that hers was not horrible, but flavorless.
  • The restaurant is unnecessarily fancy — lots of decor and not enough focus on the food.
  • The potato panchan was really good, and the rice was one of my (Miko’s) favorites on Convoy.  We can’t just come here for the potato panchan and rice, though…

Noise level: 3, but only because of the South Korea Vs. UK soccer game that was on TV.  It was pretty fun to watch the middle-aged men cheering at their tables.
