Korean Soon Tofu

mangalord Aug 3, 2009 10:18 PM

I'm looking for a Korean Soon Tofu place (similar to BCD Tofu house) that serves the typical galbi and such dishes alongside the soon tofu. Are there any places that people can recommend besides BCD Tofu house?

I've got a mix of Asian and non-Asian's but no Korean speaking people.

      Strongly agree with both recs. I personally prefer Beverly Soon Tofu, but both of them are better than BCD.

        I second that emotion.

          I'll third this. Get the BBQ squid and soon dubu combo. You get a choice of regular rice or bean rice (kong bap) with the soon dubu.

            Fourth, though I am split evenly on the Sokongdong/Beverly Tofu House question. Sokongdong has better panchan but BTH makes better barbecue to accompany your tofu.

              Actually, recently I've felt that Beverly has better panchan. Everything just tastes fresher. Although Sokongdong provides the raw crab and has more in number overall, I think Beverly executes its items better IMHO. I will definitely support the better BBQ being at Beverly.
