Soon Tofu

So last night I went to eat soon tofu in Korea Town. My family and I usually go down to the galleria to get a quick good bite to eat and buy some groceries like kimchee and gyoza. The galleria is a great place to eat because it has a supermarket downstairs, shops and gift stores on the middle floor, and restaurants on the top floor. So we went there only to find out they had NO soon tofu! But instead there was a great bibimbap place called Yang Ji Express.(Just so you know bibimbap is a rice bowl with meat and vegetables and spicy sauce mixed into it.) It had other things other than bibimbap but we just ordered two orders of bibimbap with a side order of tofu soup (not as spicy as soon tofu). It was great and very filling, so if you swing by Korea Town check out some of their food.
I know by the title of this post you thought it would be more about soon tofu, so here is a great restaurant in Korea Town that REALLY sells soon tofu. It's called BCD Tofu House.

What I love about it is that it has great soon tofu,kimchee,etc, and they keep the rice in the stone pot to fry and in the end they add water making something a bit like porridge. But you have to taste it to believe it!
If you live on the west side and want soon tofu, but don't want to drive all the way to Korea Town, then I would suggest a few places like Tofu Ya on Sawtelle or Asian Ya which is just off of Barrington and Gateway.

If you guys know any good soon tofu places tell me and I'll try it out!

A Few Great Restraunts

Oishi!!! A good ramen and curry restaurant. On the west side of Los Angeles, I love to go to Curry House on Sawtelle for curry rice. I love the chicken cutlet curry there. Kids enjoy it because they give a small kids meal with a toy on the side. They also give the kids fun activities to do while they wait for their food. If you pass Sawtelle be sure to check it out.
If you don't live on the westside, here is a great restaurant for ramen and curry. My coach Steph introduced this restaurant, Tamaya, to me and the rest of my basketball teammates. It has great curry rice, ramen, 7up floats, and many more! I love the 7up floats a lot because it's really unique with 7up,of course,and a choice between green tea or vanilla ice cream. Have fun eating at this restaurant!

My first blog

I drew this small cartoon earlier today using word and as you might have guessed I'm a rice fan!

I like any dish made with rice and I like all kinds of rice even rice pudding!
I'm going to use this blog to talk about good food and fun, easy art that kids and adults might like. Have Fun!
