I went for lunch at Han Ju Tofu Hot Pot restaurant at the Crystal Mall in Burnaby.
It’s a small hole-in-the-wall kind of place, accessed from the outside of the shopping plaza (it might seat 30 or so patrons).
I ordered the korean bbq beef on rice bowl.
This is a serving of bulgogi (marinated and seared beef), with some spicy tofu and blanched vegetables served over white rice.
The vegetables were okay, but not particularly memorable. The tofu was spicy and well seasoned. The beef was tender and savory-sweet.
It’s a decent sized portion, and a fair price.
The room is a little crowded and probably in need of a refresh, it’s a worse for wear.
The service was efficient, but not noteworthy otherwise.
