Only come here for the cakes

I'm always here. I have tried a lot of their cakes & sometimes I just repeat the same cakes because I'm afraid to try something new. I love the Lavender & Rose cheesecakes. The ones made with brownies are pretty good too. The lighter, Japanese style cheesecakes taste like mousse, which I don't like. And the mochaccino cake is the best cake in Vancouver to get at night. Every bakery that opens at night cannot compare and I know my cakes.

for the first time, I decided to try the pasta. I usually really love Aoyama, which serves the same Japanese style pasta. But this place only serves pasta & omurice, whereas Aoyama has other options. Sadly, I will never eat anything other than cake here. I had a regular pasta and it was tasteless. I could've thrown this together at home with like salt only. The chicken was subway chicken, which is terrible. It looks dehydrated & rehydrated. It's bubbly, chewy, and does not flake like real chicken does. My bf made the mistake of ordering the same thing. The mushrooms taste either dried (but that's not possible since it's super expensive) or pre-cut days/weeks ago. The garlic sauce was not much better. My bf basically described the pasta as all prepared separated & tossed together after all cooked. Nothing blended together. The chicken& mushrooms had no garlic taste. The asparagus was done well but was really cheap. It was sliced so thinly, I barely saw any flowers/heads. They were probably mostly stalks. Good asparagus should be kept whole and just sliced width-wise. Sorry, but please keep the cakes good! the service is usually very good and food came quickly. but quickness was unnecessary since more time is needed to prepare the food. The lights are too bright if they want to create a romantic atmosphere.

House of Tofu Soup4651 Garden City Road, #1110, Richmond
Decent & may come back for something different

This place isn't bad and I might return if I order something different. we thought it was called "house of tofu" because it had a lot of different kinds of tofu hotpots, but they don't have many at all. Just one tofu hot pot but you can choose from 5-6 different meats & seafood to put in it. So I don't really get why they call themselves house of tofu. Why not just another korean name? They have a lot of typical Korean dishes instead. still the menu isn't large and we didn't have much to choose from. The menu is pretty simple and cute. But the tofu soup was also a miss because it did not have enough beef or seafood flavor. However, it does come in a large pot which the person scoops out for you and leaves open. But we always keep our rice hot, so we just put the rice back into the pot & covered the lid. I had rice cakes with dumplings in the white (nonspicy) sauce. They fried the mandu and poured rice cakes on top. That was terrible! They should've kept them apart. If the mandu was going to end up soggy, they should've just steamed them. Still, the server was quite friendly & gladly refilled our side dishes and they were fairly good. The restaurant reminds me of a canteen but is very spacious.

Not a success unfortunately

I've been looking for good Korean food in Richmond and sadly I'm still looking. This place looks lovely and reminds you of home. Very spacious too. So props for that. However, their menu isn't as big as other restaurants; it doesn't have a lot of small dishes. They have meals, meat dishes, platters, and large hot pots. So we just had two personal meals. They are very stingy on the side dishes. Kimchi are not refillable. The owner was reluctant to even refill the other side dishes. I think there's only 1 refill on side dishes other than kimchi. The salad that comes with the meals was combined into one plate, assuming we want to share our food. But the salad was so small, it was meant more for one person. The seafood/beef tofu soup had mostly mussels and 1 half piece of shrimp. The bowl itself is smaller than typical Korean restaurants. they try to make this up by offered a few leaves of lettuce & a half bowl of congee. Medium was not hot enough for my bf and he found it lacked in flavor. It had almost no beef in it. I had the stirfried beef udon. There wasn't enough beef and many of the pieces had a lot of fat in it. However, everything was hot (but all Korean restaurants make this a priority) and the udon was quite tasty. Still not as tasty as Good Friends. But $9.99 per meal isn't worth it when we can get a bigger bowl & better taste for $8.95 that includes better & unlimited side dishes. The side dishes did not have enough variety and I didn't want to eat them all like I usually do at some really good restaurants. Perhaps their lack of MSG is the reason for the meal not being satisfying at all, but then I'd rather eat at another restaurant even if it has MSG as long as it tastes better. We left still thinking that the best Korean restaurants are in Burnaby & Coquitlam, with a couple in downtown.

Well worth the drive.

We learned of this restaurant through Dine Out Vancouver. All the menu offerings looked tempting, so we booked. Later we discovered some negative reviews on this website and had second thoughts.It was Sat. night and not much chance of getting anything else on short notice so we chanced it. we had our fingers crossed on that long drive from New West. and were very pleased to find we worried for nothing.
I had lobster, done to perfection, and my wife had a delicious (and also done to perfection) salmon wellington.
The service left nothing to be desired, we didn't have to wait long between courses, and plates were cleared away within minutes of our being done with them. The servers were friendly and efficient,and a window seat was a bonus,even though it was dark out.
All and all a pleasant expierience and well worth the drive.
