Korean Tofu - So Kong Dong Tofu House

My wife's Korean co-workers took her to this place, on Harry Hines just north of Walnut Creek, last week and she has been asking to go back ever since. I finally got to try it today, and it was definitely the best soondobu I've had in Dallas. Very flavorful broth, excellent side dishes (including a whole, cooked fish for each person) and decent rice. The place is a little hard to spot - it is in the Plaza Latina (?) on the east side of Harry Hines, but it is in the back on the right side. The sign is in Korean, except for the words Tofu House. Inside the decor is nice and clean, and the staff were friendly and spoke reasonable English (and Chinese, it turned out) and the menu is in Korean and English. In addition to a variety of tofu soups, they also have some BBQ, Bibimbap and arrowroot noodle dishes, along with a few other things. It may take me a while to try them out, though, since the tofu was so tasty. I had the seafood, my wife tried the soybean paste, which had a nice miso flavor to it, not too strong. They will also give you extra of the side dishes if you want, which was nice. It was all reasonably priced, too - $8 for the tofu. Plus, they are open 10 - 10 every day, so there is really no need for me to get the soondobu from Ko Mart anymore.
