new soon tofu in sawtelle plaza

yay! new place to open up where the upper house used to be (near the corner of sawtelle and olympic).

sawtelles slowly but surely being koreanified.

    Can you please give me some more details on where this new place is?

      They probably need a BBQ joint and some nondescript bars before the Koreanification is complete, but I'm all for a new soon tofu joint on the Westside. My UCLA buddies, especially, will embrace the fact that they don't have to swim down the ocean of traffic on Wilshire Boulevard just for a bowl of soup.

        there is tofu-ya up the street. it's decent but sure beats fighting traffic to head to ktown when you have an itch that needs scratching.

        walking distance > driving =)

          For soon tofu there is also the bizarrely-named but not-bad "Asian-Ya Soy Boy Tofu House," at Gateway & Barrington.

          And a BBQ joint has just opened up, a little further south on Sawtelle at National. http://www.chowhound.com/topics/482993 (And you can even get bing su nearby, at Sepulveda & National).
