I had a hankering to try one of the many Korean restaurants in the Fort Lee area. So, my mom called a family friend who knows about such places and on Friday, October 21, 2011, my parents joined me at the BCD Tofu House.
The place is not BYOB. We ordered some sort of chilled herb wine beverage. It was a new taste. It reminded me a bit of horseradish. I wouldn’t say it was bad, but I don’t know that I would order it again.
Did you notice that we each got a whole fish? They were complimentary (and tasty).
Also complimentary, as is traditional in many Korean restaurants, is an endless supply of side dishes.
I got the Jap Chae, which was a lot like a cross between chow fun and mei fun. It was flavorful and I would get it again (though, of course, I’d want to try other items first).
My mom ordered the LA Gal Bi beef shortribs. We were all in the mood for some of that.
My dad got a seafood and tofu soup that was so bubblingly boiling hot, you could cook an egg in it.
And you actually do get an egg to cook in it.
It’s a good thing that my father ordered it mild because Korean spicy is very different from Thai spicy or Indian spicy or Mexican spicy.
We had a great time. I would recommend you check this place out.
