I’ve been trying to figure out where to go for Korean food now that the default Stanford place, Korea House, is closed. For tofu, I think my favorite place is Myung Dong Tofu Cabin just north of Lawrence on El Camino. It’s overtaken Tofu House, which used to be phenomenal, but I heard they changed owners a while ago and the quality has kind of slipped. Myung Dong I like better, the only caveat being that the quality of their meat isn’t good, especially the pork.
For BBQ, right now I think I like Han Sung (I think that’s what it’s called) on El Camino south of Lawrence in the Moonlite Center. They use the hot wood chips (like at Brother’s? Can’t remember) and the meat is pretty good. That and Palace Buffet is where I like to go.
On another food note, they started selling pearl milk drinks at New Tung Kee (at least the one on San Antonio). I tried the Taro drink, and it was surprisingly good. I liked the pearls there better than the pearls at Verde.
