I won’t even pretend to know the first thing about Korean food. It’s one cuisine that I rarely find myself eating. But after trying Mr. Tofu that might change. Their sundubu (tofu soup) might be what everyone raves about, but my crush is on the dolsot bibimbap — mixed veggies, rice, beef, and topped with a fried egg.

The regular bibimbap comes in a ceramic bowl, while the dolsot bibimbap is in a large stone bowl (kind of like a large molcajete) that retains heat for an extended amount of time. I should have waited for it to cool off when it arrived but made the rookie mistake of diving in the second it was set in front of me. The result was me burning my tongue and it still hurts a couple days later. Despite the hot temps, it was so delicious that I couldn’t stop eating it. The crispy rice was the best part of it, but the other ingredients were pretty amazing too.

The banchan were tasty, as was the side of galbi. The beef sundubu my wife ordered was pretty good but  needed plenty of chili paste for additional flavor. On future visits I don’t think I can pass on the dolsot bibimbap. The price and value of everything was excellent — plenty of bang for your buck.
