great service, great food, and wonderful staff. Go there more than once, and they remember you. they give you a set of appetizers (included with the meal but not for take-out - self serve at lunch) that is a great introduction to Korean food.

Mom's has a full and wide range of Korean delicacies other than just tofu dishes. The Selections include, beef, chicken and other standard dishes. The buffet side dish bar is very good and plentiful.

Ok Soon DuDu, good service, beef ribs need more work to chew through although it was flavorful. Will come back again if need some tofu and soup.

Another hidden gem; you have to love homestyle restaurants. The place is small and does not have much seating. The food is consistently good. You can't go wrong with most dishes: soups and rice dishes. Some dishes are a bit pricey but you get what you pay for, pure flavorful yumminess!

Went for dinner - tiny place, we snagged the last table. The complimentary appetizers were delicious - some kind of pancake with a tasty sauce. Seven tiny dishes of various vegetable specials - kim chee, seaweed, bean sprouts - very nice. Amazing variety of tofu soup - I had the seafood combination, one of my companions had the pork. Both...
