i just moved back to chicago from LA and im feeling a rather intense withdrawal from one of my favorite food there - tofu bowl! im looking for something like they serve at bcd tofu house if anyone is familiar with that restaurant. im not sure what the korean name is - maybe Soon Doo Boo? also i am a vegetarian, so vegi leaning korean places would be good too. any help is greatly appreciated. thanks!
Another place that specialized in soon doobu tofu is Cho Dang Tofu in Mt Prospect. Smaller selection than BCD, but the quality is pretty good. They do a good job with the rice 90% of the time, with just enough crispy bits on the bottom to scrape off.
They have a one bowl with just kimchi, no meat which would be good for you. They also ask you how spicy you like it when you order. We usually go "putoong" or standard style.
