Mix and Eat Bobs House - Pleasanton Healthy Korean Restaurant

Mix and Eat Bob's House Pleasanton – When you see the name, your first reaction is certainly not..."this must be a Korean restaurant".  You likely think it's some greasy spoon, American dive.  Next, if you venture inside or check out their website, you notice they have a very strange menu...meat, rice and veggie bowls along with some wraps, sides and... pizza???!!  Apparently, according to some inside sources, they have pizza because the landlord requires it...apparently the previous restaurant served pizza.

Despite the idiosyncrasies, the food is actually very healthy...sans the pizza (which if you've read my reviews before, you know is something to avoid if you want to lose fat and be healthy).  I actually just ate here for the first time on a Friday at lunch a couple weeks back (I sat at the table outside on the right in the picture above...such relevant info).  Get here before noon if you want to get a seat and not have to wait in line...this place attracts a number of the lunch time office crowd.  You can get the food to go as well.  Bob's is located on Hopyard in the strip mall behind Burger King right by the 580 freeway in Pleasanton.

With that said. before you head out to Mix and Eat Bob's House on Hopyard in Pleasanton check out my choices below from their menu. 


Bibimbap lets just follow the steps they have on their menu
  • Select rice - I would opt for no rice or brown/basmati
  • Choose vegetable - Go for the fresh vs sauteed as you don't know what type of oil they's likely not a good one
  • Choose Meat - I had the short rib, but any of them would be fine...except vegetarian where you would get tofu which isn't healthy!
  • Choose Plate - I chose the regular instead of hot stone...unless you want the veggies cooked

Side Orders - those other than the salad appear to involve bread or frying
  • Seaweed Salad looks to be the best choice

Wraps eat only half the bread…and ask for the sauce on the side...the gyro with soda I left out...because you certainly don't want to order soda...I just had a water.
  • Chicken
  • Bibimbap

Pizza (by the slice, or whole pizza)– generally you’ll want to avoid pizza with all it’s bread, but if you go with pizza opt for the by the slice (yes it technically costs more, however you won't overeat and you shouldn't base food purchases only on price).  If you order a whole pizza, order one size smaller than you think you'll need…you could also order seewead side salad so you’ll be less likely to want as much pizza

Just a few other things worth mentioning.  It seems as if they cater to those who want to make an effort to eat healthy, which is great since most restaurants of this type are anything but healthy.  Their menu states that they use all natural ingredients, no preservatives and no msg.  The all natural doesn't necessarily mean anything...but it's likely better than you'll find in most places (the food looks and tastes fresh).  They also have a note on their menu to ask them about any special dietary needs and requests.  Again, another sign that they will try to accommodate you if you're trying to eat better.
