This Koreatown spot isn’t any more expensive than its numerous competitors, but it’s a notch above on most other levels: the room is open and airy, the Disney-esque K-pop is kept respectfully low, and kimchee (fresh, crunchy and less funky than most) is constantly replenished. Making an excellent first impression, banchan includes waxy potatoes cooked in sweet soy sauce, crunchy sesame-perfumed bean sprouts and cold tofu with tiny broccoli florets. As the name suggests, soon tofu is the star of the menu; it’s a spicy, garlicky stew of soft tofu served with a substantial stone bowl of purple rice. Bi bim bap is fantastic; a raw egg adds velvety richness, and deep red gochujang sauce charges the dish with savoury heat.
