Koba Tofu Grill

Koba is probably my favorite soon dubu restaurant in Irvine,
The top spot was held by Irvine Tofu House, the one on Jeffery, in the same plaza of Yogurtland,
But the last experience there wasn't too pleasant.

Let me tell you the story.
I went there around 2 p.m., in one of these hot summer afternoon,
The AC wasn't on, and I had to peek around to find my waitress, no one was in the front, none, zero, nada.
And while I was trying to enjoy my meal and sweating at the same time,
Few unwanted guests were around our table too, those little flying creatures.
So I made up my mind that I'll never come back again.
I can't stand swinging my hand and trying to eat at the same time.

Good thing that I discovered Koba-

And no way you can find flies there, it was nice and clean-

Koba's Banchan (little dishes)-

The only thing I'll miss the most from Irvine Tofu House is probably their stewed potato,
How much I wish Koba serves that as one of their banchan also.

My Oyster Soon Dubu-

Look how fat that oyster is.

I also tried my friend's ham and sausage soon dubu,
The ham was surprisingly smooth, the texture was really creamy.
I couldn't figure out why, maybe because of the fat?
I don't know, but at least I know that it was Goooooood!

God I'm hungry.

  1. that is just too delicious looking.

  2. Ah, another fellow Irvine-resident. :)

    You were correct...the oysters were fresh, plump, and succulent. This is a good place. :)
