On a cold day, there’s nothing more comforting than a piping hot bowl of tofu stew, and BCD Tofu House in Koreatown is a great place to get your tofu fix. As the name of the restaurant suggests, BCD Tofu House is all about tofu, or, more precisely, soon tofu, which is freshly curdled, extra soft, made in-house and served in a flavorful broth. At BCD Tofu House they’ve got different versions with beef, pork, seafood, or veggies, and you can choose your preferred level of spiciness, which goes all the way up to Danger. I’ve never ventured beyond Medium, but if you’ve tried danger, I would like to hear what it was like, and how you survived:)
The tofu stew is served with rice, a raw egg to add to your stew, and a selection of banchan (side dishes), so it’s a filling meal, and I think the portions are the same size for lunch as they are for dinner. The price for the lunch combos are only slightly cheaper than for dinner, but very reasonable, and it doesn’t take long from you place your order until the food arrives at your table, so it’s a good place to go for a quick lunch, even though you have to count in time to wait for the broth to cool off, or you’ll burn your mouth.
Wonder what BCD stands for? It’s short for Bukchang Dong, a district in Seoul, which BCD is named after:)
