Vit Goal Tofu Restaurant (Korean)- Durham

suse | Sep 3, 200607:39 PM     49

I find myself compelled to put in a good word for my current favorite local comfort food place. I love Asian tofu dishes. Ever since discovering Vit Goal a couple of months ago, it has become a weekly habit. Despite being located in a little strip mall off 55 near 54, the place has charm. The servers are lovely and the tofu soup is delicious. They also have a few beef dishes, a seafood pancake, pork dish, and octopus (we haven't tried these yet), but if you don't like tofu, I don't know if I'd make a point of going. We've tried the tofu soup with vegetable dumplings (yum), with mushrooms (enoki, shitake and mystery mushroom)& w/beef and kimchee (meat is minimal, more for the flavor). The dumplings and mushroom are my favorite so far. The (literally) boiling soup is served with an odd cold soup on the side, a Korean iced tea (both an aquired taste, I think), rice and a few small dishes (Kimchee, either bean sprouts or potatoes, cucumber). It's a fairly new place. There's a nice Korean grocery store next door. Give them a try if you are a tofu fan like I am. Oh yeah - the medium spicy is plenty spicy. Our 12-year-old gets the mild. The flavor is very good and not too spicy.
