Seoul Tofu House opened a few months ago and I couldn’t help but salivate from the pictures I saw popping up on social media! I love myself a good soondubu…and a good Korean meal in general! This restaurant is located in Waikiki, right next door to the International Marketplace. I don’t think they have their own parking option. I parked at the International Marketplace and bought something from Mitsuwa to get parking validation. If you spend $10 at any store in the marketplace, you can get a validation for 1 hour free parking. Good deal! So how was the restaurant?
Look at this handy notch on the chairs! Why don’t all chairs have this??
I’m always excited to try smashed cucumbers at restaurants. This one was a thumbs down for me unfortunately. While I don’t expect complete marination since it’s a fresh cucumber dish – there was not enough seasoning in this dish. Maybe a bit more salt would have made it better.
This dish was surprisingly delicious. While I like dishes like this, it’s not something I order usually. Well, this dish certainly changed my mind. Their sauce is delicious! Yes, a bit spicy (but not really to me) but it has a great sweetness to it too. Definitely a homemade sauce from the restaurant, I loved it. I would recommend it!
Good dish! A definite winner with kids. I don’t know about the unagi sauce description, just tasted like a nice savory teriyaki-ish burger patties!
Look, can you ever go wrong with kalbi? Definitely not. Was it worth $29? Probably not, it did taste good though.
The grand finale, my dish!! They’re known for soondubu so of course I had to get it. And look at the cost! Only $14 for the full meal and it’s for the seafood one. They were pretty generous with the seafood too. The broth had a nice deep flavor, would definitely recommend it. The service was great when I went and the food came out fast. Give it a try!
