２月６日夜『Lee's Tofu』韓国スン豆腐店に久しぶりに行きました。ロサンゼルス空港から南に15分ほどのガーディナ市東西ブラザ内にあります。２月５日早朝から南カリフォルニア州は大雨。２月６日も朝から降ったり止んだりでした。寒い雨の日は暖かい鍋が食べたくなります。 "Lee's Tofu" Korean Tofu Pot: I went there for dinner on Feb. 6, 2010, for the first time in 2 and a half years. It's located 15 minutes south of LAX International airport and inside Tozai Plaza on Redondo Beach Blvd. and Western Ave. On Feb. 5th, it rained heavily all day from early morning through next morning. On Feb. 6th, it showered on and off all day. When it's cold and raining, we want to eat hot pot or soup.
店の入り口外と入ってすぐ右側のところ。入り口付近には常に５－８人の行列。 Restaurant Entrance (Left) and right side dining area near the entrance. There was a line of 5 to 8 people waiting at the entrance all the time.
11種のスン豆腐、韓国焼肉、焼肉とホット豆腐のコンビネーション、ビビンパなどがあります。辛さはノンスパイシー、マイルド、ミディウム、スパイシー、エキストラスパイシーの5段階。ディナー価格。ランチはもう少し安い。(写真クリックで拡大) They have 11 kinds of Hot Tofu, Korean BBQ, BBQ and Hot Tofu Combination, Bibimbob, etc. The spiciness can be selected from Non Spicy, Mild, Medium Spicy, Spicy, and Extra Spicy. Dinner price. Lunch price is slightly lower. (Click photos to enlarge.)
レタスのサラダが出され、わかめ、もやし、韓国岩海苔、キムチなどの前菜が出されます。 They served Lettuce Salad and appetizers, such as Wakame Seaweed, Bean Sprouts, Korean Nori Seaweed, Kimchee, etc.
石釜で炊いた炊きたてあつあつのご飯 Stone Pot Freshly Cooked Rice 熱いうちにまわりをスプーンでこそぎます。おこげご飯と熱々ご飯をキムチと韓国岩海苔で食べる、最高です！ While it's hot, scoop and scrape the out-edge of the Steamed Rice. You will eat the hot Steamed Rice and little burned sizzling Rice with Kimchee and Korean Nori Seaweeds. It's great!
6番 あさり貝スン豆腐 ミディウム(中辛)。 #6 Clam Soon Tofu (Clam), Medium Spicy あつあつで沸騰してます。ちゃんと殻つきの新鮮なあさり貝入りです。あとはなめらかでやわらかい豆腐とねぎ。 It's hot and boiling. The clams were with the shells and fresh. The other ingredients are smooth soft Tofu and chopped Green Onions.
3番 シーフードスン豆腐 マイルド(辛さ控えめ)。 #3 Seafood Soon Tofu (Clam, Shrimp, Oyster), Mild 1番上の写真を混ぜるとこういうかんじ。頭付き海老、殻付きあさり貝、むいた牡蠣、なめらかでやわらかい豆腐、ねぎ。自宅で試作したことありますがダシがうまくとれません。やはり秘伝のレサピがあるのでしょう。 If you mix up the top photo, it will look like this. It has Head-on Shrimps, Shell-on Clams, Peeled Oysters, smooth and soft Tofu, and chopped Green Onions. We tried to make this at home a few times, but we could not come up with the good broth soup for this. There must be a secret recipe for this.

This week in Los Angeles, Northern Trust Open Golf Tournament has been held at Riviera Country Club. A Japanese 18 year-old golf sensation, Ryo Ishikawa, is participating. He was the top money winner among Japanese professional golf players last year. He is recognized as the number one golf professional player in Japan. Due to heavy rain on Friday, Feb. 5, 2010, the last portion of the Friday's round was played Saturday morning. Ryo Ishikawa finished at the 4th tie and advanced to the Final first game on Saturday, Feb. 6. Due to showers all day on Saturday, Ryo Ishikawa hit several shots to the bankers, and he finished the Saturday's first Final round at the 14th tie. The winner will be decided today on Sunday, Feb. 7, 2010. Update:When I wrote this article around 5 am on Feb.7th, the weather forecast said it would rain in the morning, but it became clear and sunny from the morning.
The restaurant waitress/owner said, "We are so busy every time it rains!" The customers are 80% Korean, Some Japanese, Japanese American, Chinese, and Americans. There are more than 14 restaurants that serve Korean Hot Tofu within 20 minute driving distance from my house. I like this "Lee's Tofu" the best. Prepare to wait a few minutes on the line on a rainy day. There is a large free parking lot at Tozai Plaza.
