Tofu House – Markham

IMG_7090

Nevermind me in the photo and focus on the restaurant (It was very difficult to get a decent picture of the restaurant outside, as the lighting wouldn’t cooperate). This Korean tofu joint is the next best thing to Buk Chang Soon Tofu. Let’s weigh the options.

The menu has a variety of options,  but really disliking the $2 difference for some of the dishes. The style is similar to Buk Chang’s, serving appetizers but they don’t serve the soy beans like Buk Chang, I always look forward to eating them when I go out. And we got some salad, which dressing’s tasted like the ones at Japanese restaurants.

By similar style, I mean the rice is served in a hot stone pot and the soup in another. We all ordered different soups; seafood, assorted, mushroom and bean paste (I think). The over all taste was average and the tofu was very soft.

The restaurant is small and there are only two waiters, who aren’t very active at cleaning up the deserted tables. The service was average, as I didn’t expect much.
If you’re not willing to drive to Yonge and Finch for some Korean food, this place will do.

Day 12 – Seoul (Part 9)

A trip to Korea wouldn’t be complete without having some ox tail/ bone soup. It wasn’t on my list of foods to try but we passed this restaurant by accident, after failing to find Slow Garden (please check out Day 13 for Slow Garden). We sat down after 1pm so it wasn’t busy. We each ordered a soup (that came with rice) and there were three kinds of all you can eat kimchi at the table.

My soup had rice cakes, my favourite!

After spending time at Ihwa-dong Mural and taking pictures, we decided to pop by and sit down at the Rilakkuma Cafe.

There aren’t any dinner pictures because we settled for all you can eat kbbq. There wasn’t anything special about dinner that night besides tons of food to eat! There was a spray that you could squirt your clothes, jackets and bags after eating at the restaurant. It’s supposed to remove the barbeque smell.
