Chodang Soon Tofu in Etobicoke #WorldInMyCity ~Korea

If you enjoy tofu, especially tofu that is made fresh daily on site, you have to pay a visit to Chodang Soon Tofu in Etobicoke. They make their creamy silky smooth tofu fresh on site every morning. The menu is traditional Korean and the tofu stews come with lots of tasty savoury sides including fried fish, bean sprouts, kimchi and cold tofu.

An amazing way to start is with the tofu yaki... lightly grilled in a delicious sweet sesame sauce...

Their specialty, the silken tofu, differs from the regular tofu because it is strained through silk instead of cheesecloth, making the consistency like a creamy custard.

The soft tofu stew comes with a raw egg that you break into the stew to thicken it. There is a selection of flavours to choose from including beef, pork, oyster and mushroom. We had mushroom and beef.

The stew comes with a bowl of whole grain rice which is prepared in a separate stone pot. Hot tea then poured into the stone pot to loosen the rice. You are meant to eat this soaked rice (it's called 'burnt rice soup') after your meal to aid your digestion.

Cho Dang Soon Tofu is delicious, authentic and incredibly affordable. Two people can dine heartily, and quite healthily, for under $25. You can also get takeout and purchase their fresh tofu separately to eat later. Rosie :)

It looks like it would be spicy? Was it?

It was mildly spicy, you can choose your level of spice, mild medium or hot. I like mild, but some may find even that too much heat. The kimchi is quite spicy.

Everything looks so tasty. No tofu joints over here.

You would like it I am sure. There are many Korean restaurants here but not many I know of that specialize in tofu, or make it homemade everyday. The dishes are super flavorful!
