Song Pa replaces Totoro in Mountain ViewUploaded: Feb 16, 2016
One Korean restaurant out, and another moves in: Longtime downtown Mountain View eatery Totoro was replaced last week by Song Pa Korean Cuisine.
Family-run Totoro, which served traditional Korean food from a tiny space at 241 Villa St. since 2002, recently closed.

A family that owned a Korean restaurant in Pleasanton called Song Pa took over the space and opened a second restaurant of the same name, owner Anna Won said Tuesday. She said she owns Song Pa with her brother and mother. The family sold the Pleasanton restaurant before moving to the Mountain View area, she said.
Song Pa's menu is similar to Totoro's, with dishes like bibimbap, kimchi fried rice, japchae and bulgogi. There’s also an entire vegetarian section on the menu.
Song Pa is open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. every day of the week except Sunday
