So Gong Dong Tofu House
Five minutes drive from Stanford. More commonly referred to as Tofu House…
Because of the variety of soondubu (순두부 soft tofu soup) here. Served with a raw egg and brown (purple) rice with red beans.
You crack that egg into the boiling stone bowl, and stir it up. Pieces of soft tofu break. Steam. Taste. Slurp. And perspire a little. This soup works wonder when you’re feeling sick.
For textural contrast, this place has the crustiest bibimbap. And I measure bibimbap’s goodness by its crunchy rice crust at the bottom. Came off easily too. 😀
There are only six side dishes, nothing out of the ordinaries. All good. The potato is the star.
And how I wish the Korean restaurants on Telegraph could have the same parking lot as this place.
