Pyeong Chang Tofu House Restaurant Review

: The main event at Pyeong Chang is the "soon," or soft tofu soup, piping hot bowls of chile-infused broth loaded with silky, custard-like tofu and a choice of add-ins, including kimchi, beef, pork and tender dumplings. The soon is accompanied by stone pot rice, the vessel it arrives in so flaming hot that the rice directly touching it fries to an addictive crunch. Together, they make a fine meal, rounded out by the flurry of fresh panchan (side dishes) that come with each order: fiery pickles perhaps, or tender chile-flecked bok choy, rounds of slightly sweet potato and simply dressed bean sprouts. Korean favorite bibimbap also fares well at Pyeong Chang, featuring more of that crispy rice along with bits of beef and vegetables, topped with an egg, which cooks as you stir it with the other ingredients. This is an ideal spot for a rainy winter night, when the cups of barley tea and bowls of soon will warm you to your toes.
