I am so much closer to my LA friends now, and we can meet up for lunch!
Friends wanted to have lunch at Mokkoji.
I’ve been to Mokkoji in Irvine, and liked their beef belly a lot.
Heard the Rowland Heights just opened recently.
All three of us ordered the same thing – Toro Beef with OG Broth.
The OG broth was made with mushroom and kelp.
Very simple, but have good flavor.
我們三個人都點一樣的 – 肥牛和“老屁股”湯頭 (也就是傳統湯頭啦)，
The toro, or beef belly, has equal lean meat and fat.
The meat is very soft after cooking in the broth.
The fat just makes the meat tastes that much better.
A variety of vegetables comes with the shabu combo.
You can also request unlimited refill on the vegetables.
You can either request another bowl, or just certain veggies.
The food was great. We had a great time catching up.
Rowland Heights is now only 20 minutes away from me.
Looking forward to meeting up with more friends for lunch!
