Cho Dang Gol
The tofu comes boiled, cubed, spiced, ground and in tiny, buttery bits called dregs. Jung suk, the signature tofu casserole, has cubes of delicate white bean curd as well as those dregs. Stews mix snow-white squares of tofu with treats like baby octopus or squid. In nontofu territory, the pajun combination appetizer presents four generous pancakes, from mild, crispy leek to zesty kimchi. Sizzling kalbi (short ribs) are served on a cast-iron griddle with lettuce leaves for wrapping. Sadly, the well-regarded restaurant serves no dessert—not even Tofutti.

This busy Korean restaurant in the heart of Koreatown, has been making delicious hand-made bean curd since 1997. If you are reluctant to try tofu, Cho Dang Gol's tofu is the one for you to try, as it is creamy, soft and melts in your mouth. The stuffed mushrooms and tofu slices are great appetizers. Some really good main courses to try are the stir fried squid or the stir fried tofu trio. Besides the amazing tofu, you can have fantastic Korean barbeque, soups, noodles and rice dishes. The staff are super friendly and willing to explain to extensive menu of Korean entrees.
