With around 7-8 items on the menu, Buk Chang Dong Soon Tofu is one of the best Korean Spicy Tofu Soup in the city. This is my fave Korean Restaurant in Toronto and I would also say the best hangover cure =P
(p.s. it doesn't hurt that it's all male Korean wait staff)
For less than $10 each, you get your tofu soup, 4 side dishes and rice.
4 side dishes seems to be relatively few compare to the other Korean restaurant but I assure you it's plenty.
Kimchi Soon Tofu (Kimchi, Beef, Pork)
There's a 5 level of spiciness to choose from and of course I had mine Extra Spicy which is level 5 (^_,^)
There's a choice of "white" which is plain and not spicy at all...
in my opinion if you can't handle the tiniest bit of spice, just skim the soon tofu and maybe switch to Bibimbap or Bulgogi instead, the Soon Tofu just have to been spicy.
It arrive bubbling hot and a raw egg is provided for you to crack into
I'm personally not a tofu fan but the one here are just super super smooth, moist and yummy.
It was with "purple" rice which is also served in a stone pot but it's scoop out into a regular bowl as soon as it arrives and water is then added to the stone pot to the remaining rice that's still stuck =)
You will probably be thinking that rice + water = tasteless... but you are wrong, their rice are super aromatic especially when cook in these stone pot
I have been there many many many time but have always ordered their Soon Tofu but that day we feel like: Hot Pot Bibimbap
Super cute square egg and served with a heaping of sauteed veggies and Gochujang (chili paste).
Perfect ratio when mix together, you get a bit of everything in every spoonful
my fave thing about Bibimbap is the "rice crust" at the bottom of the pot... the one here are cook to perfection, just simply a super crispy yumminess
Highly recommend !!!!
Best Tofu, Best Spicy Korean Soup and one of the best Bibimbap in T.O.
