Pure Flavors Shine Through at Tofu Tofu

“I finally found a worthy competitor to Pyung Chang in the South Bay” for Korean soft-tofu stew, reports DezzerSF. The unassuming Tofu Tofu has shot to the top of the “Dez Top 10” soondubu joints in the South Bay.

The stew arrives bubbling hot in its cast iron pot, with bits of zucchini, onion, and jalapeño. The use of jalapeño to augment the red pepper flakes, which are only medium spicy, lets the flavor of the anchovy-based broth shine through. You can get soondubu with beef, pork, seafood, or oyster; order pork and you get a nice amount of tender meat that appears to be a belly cut.
