House of Tofu Soup is a Korean restaurant that specializes in tofu soup. You can order the soup with seafood, beef, pork, dumplings or mushrooms and choose the level of spicyness. With your order of soup, you get kimchi and a few other side dishes and a bowl of rice. They also serve other favorites such as bulgogee and bibimbab.
Yes! I love coming back to this place.
I know the tofu is 10/10, so instead I tried their kum ja tang (pork bone soup).
It was pretty good, however NOT as pictured in the menu/posters. Being as the price of 12.99 or w/e, it's not bad. You would often have to pay 29.99 for a big pot of it at Jang Mo Jib.
Definitely come here after or before peak hours and you will enjoy it. Come during lunch or dinner rushes, you will be waiting hours for food.
This place isn't bad and I might return if I order something different. we thought it was called "house of tofu" because it had a lot of different kinds of tofu hotpots, but they don't have many at all. Just one tofu hot pot but you can choose from 5-6 different meats & seafood to put in it. So I don't really get why they call themselves house of tofu. Why not just another korean name? They have a lot of typical Korean dishes instead. still the menu isn't large and we didn't have much to choose from. The menu is pretty simple and cute. But the tofu soup was also a miss because it did not have enough beef or seafood flavor. However, it does come in a large pot which the person scoops out for you and leaves open. But we always keep our rice hot, so we just put the rice back into the pot & covered the lid. I had rice cakes with dumplings in the white (nonspicy) sauce. They fried the mandu and poured rice cakes on top. That was terrible! They should've kept them apart. If the mandu was going to end up soggy, they should've just steamed them. Still, the server was quite friendly & gladly refilled our side dishes and they were fairly good. The restaurant reminds me of a canteen but is very spacious.
We used to frequent the Coquitlam location, until the Richmond location opened.
At first, the soups were excellent and flavorful, but the last few times were disappointing.
Other items on the menu to try are the stone bi-bimbap and fried gyoza style dumplings. They do offer combos of Tofu Soup with Bulgogi if you are hungry however.
I guess if you are coming here for the soup, you will be happy, but all the other items are just so so. In Richmond you can go to Jang Mo Jib down the road for a better experience.
