Heritage Plaza shopping center is adding one more good reason to eat in Irvine. I spied the storefront in the early phases of construction bearing the distinctive orange and green corporate logo of Los Angeles based chain BCD Tofu House. They serve rather good renditions of Korean soontofu, the fiery chili laced stew of soft silky tofu.
The BCD stores are all sparkling clean, cheery places with solidly good food. Some of their shops are open around the clock, a MAJOR bonus for night people like me. I no longer have to schlep to their Garden Grove store for a late night fix. Please, please, let the Irvine store be open 24/7. We can finally go somewhere close to my house that’s not called Denny’s!
They’ll still make the second best soon tofu in Irvine, in my opinion. My favorite place? Working on a story about it for publication. Soon, dear reader, soon, I will reveal it.

Next to the Sav-On drugstore, Cold Stone Creamery, Phoenix Food Boutique, Wheel of Life all-vegetarian Thai, L&L Hawaiian barbecue, etc. Not that I’m endorsing any of these joints, just helping you locate it in this giant strip mall.
