Korean food at Jang Su Jang in Santa Clara, CA

This review is a little different because I dont know the name of even one dish I ate. I didnt order my meal. All I have are pictures and the taste of wonderful food in my tongue and mind. Next time I will do a better job not just taking pictures but also writing down names. With that caveat, here we go.

With the help of a Korean colleague who did my ordering for me, I enjoyed an excellent vegetarian lunch at a popular Tofu Korean BBQ place in Santa Clara called Jang Su Jang.The place has a long wait. So make sure you land there ahead of time. The ambiance is very pleasant and the seating is cosy. The service was very good.

The food was fantastic. I was told what to lay off from and made my choices clear. No egg, no mushroom, no meat, no fish sauce and I still ended up with a good big lunch.

The Korean grain tea which was warm and had this earthly smell which was fantastic. The vegetarian pancake was outstanding. The main dish with veggies on a pot of hot and crunchy rice and sauce was so good, not a grain was left when I was done.

This is my second experience with Korean BBQ and with the right guide to order, the cuisine is fantastic. Strongly recommended with a Korean speaking friend/colleague.


Ambiance: 8.5/10. Very clean and nice ambiance.

Service: 9/10. Very good service. My drink was refilled well before I  finished it. Servers were on the job and extremely attentive.

Food: 8.5/10. Loved it. Very tasty and given the amount of fresh veggies, pretty healthy too.

Price: 7.5/10. Slightly on the expensive side but not too pricey.

Restroom: N/A

Overall: 8.5/10. Every once in a while a restaurant comes along which boasts a cuisine that is not necessarily vegetarian friendly, but with the right help can end up as a feast for the taste buds. This was one of them. Strongly recommended.
