Opened by chef-owner Nam Kyoung Soo whom founded the popular SBCD Korean Tofu House, Buk Chang Dong Soon Tofu is an express outlet that offers the similar soon tofu at wallet-friendly prices. Currently, there are three outlets that are located at Ang Mo Kio, Jurong and Punggol.
The menu features six soon tofu sets ($6-8) and each set comes with a side of kimchi, seaweed and rice. Some highlights include the Seafood Soon Tofu Set $8, Dumpling Soon Tofu Set $7 and Pork Soon Tofu Set $7. Add on a plate of Mandu (available in pork, kimchi or japchae filling) at $4.5 for three pieces and $6.50 for five pieces.
If you have been to SBCD Korean Tofu Korean House, one bowl of soon tofu can set you back at $20 plus. Buk Chang Dong Soon Tofu offers a similar version at close to a quarter of the price though one can expect a difference in portion and taste.
The Seafood Soon Tofu is served in a small pot and brims with ingredients like mussels, clams, prawns, squid and tofu. Soup-wise, it’s mildly spicy and not as flavourful as I had expected even for the price. The tofu is silky smooth and delicious.
If you are looking for an affordable and convenient alternative, this might be for you. Otherwise, head over to the original SBCD Korean Tofu House where the taste is sure to satisfy.
