Tofu House Grand Opens San Diego College Area Location

November 19, 2021

San Diego's decades-old Tofu House Korean restaurant has grand opened its third location in the SDSU College Area.

Founded by Seoul, Korea-native Joonsok Kim in San Diego's Kearny Mesa in 1998, Tofu House is a casual restaurant with a menu centered around tofu soup, hot-stone plated Korean barbecue, and seafood dishes. In 2015, the second Tofu House opened in Mira Mesa. During the pandemic, the restaurant was one of the first to implement an outdoor dining model in the original location's parking lot, which was lauded as an example of how restaurants should set up by then-mayor Kevin Faulconer.

The third area Tofu House held its grand opening this week in the plaza that also houses Tajima Ramen and Big 5 Sporting Goods just steps from the San Diego State University Campus. This is the company's first franchised location. In addition to its full food menu, the new location also sells beer, sake, soju, and the popular hot corn tea.

Tofu House SDSU is now open daily from 11:30am to 9pm at 6061 El Cajon Boulevard, Suite 4, in the San Diego's College Area. For more information, visit and check out the menu below.
