MiRak Tofu Mill in Sacto.

Tracy L. | Feb 9, 200412:26 AM

I am a newbie to Korean food so I don't have many experiences to compare it to. Since I love Vietnamese and Thai I thought I'd give MiRak a try for lunch. MiRak is located at La Riviera and Folsom Blvd. in what used to be Kip's Kabobs. The place looks very different than Kip's did. Much nicer than before but not upscale.

I had the tofu and seafood soup. While the seafood {clams, oysters and shrimps) wasn't plentiful it was sufficient to flavor the broth. The soup was just spicy enough for my taste and as far as I could tell it was a red chili pepper base. The tofu was excellent, it was light and fluffy and absorbed the flavors wonderfully. I liked the accompaniements particularily the raw egg. I was enjoying the other accompaniements so much the wait person offered to serve me more. The tea was a new experience for me as well. At first I wasn't sure I liked the roasted corn tea, but after the second cup I was hooked and drank the whole pot (I am not a big tea drinker so drinking the whole pot is unsual for me).

It seems like the restaurant caters mostly to those people looking for the korean food experience but not wanting to eat at the mom-pop shops. Now I'd like to try the mom-pop places to compare to MiRak. I'd like to try MiRak again too with a few other people so I can sample more of the food.
