The Bunnies Are Back (Well, Almost)--Jurassic Restaurant in Hacienda Heights
I'm not sure how long ago it was that I last dined at a Playboy Club--probably more than 25 years ago. Well the closest thing I've seen to this is the relatively recently opened Jurassic Restaurant at 15301 Gale Ave. in Hacienda Heights. Jurassic is one of those crazy theme Taiwanese nighttime restaurants, this one decorated like a cave. More notably, the waitresses there dress up in very interesting costumes. Some, like the policewoman, the letter carrier, and the football referee are dressed slightly more modestly than Hooters girls. But then there are the French maid, the candy striped nurse and the girls in the outfits rather reminscent of Playboy bunny outfits (including headgear vaguely similar to bunny ears). Foodwise, I only was able to order the salt and pepper bean curd, which was actually slightly stinky tofu and which was pretty good. I'd be interested in any other comments about the food. Clientele wise this seemed to be almost exclusively a college age/young adult crowd (it was very busy), so I'm not sure if us older folks really fit in.
