So as many of you know, I lived in Korea for a year. As you would expect I became a Korean Cuisine elitist. Upon returning to Toronto I was deflated by the mediocre offerings available in the city. I missed the true Samgyeopsal experience and affordable prices for just about anything (2 dollar beer and a huge galbi bbq for 10 dollars was the norm). I have ventured to several Korean restaurants in the city whenever I am feeling a bit nostalgic for Seoul food. My favorite to date is Korea House contrasted with the garbage coming out of places like Yummy Bar-B-Q.
Tofu Village located in the heart of Toronto’s Korea Town was recently featured in Toronto Life as one of the top Korean spots in the city worth visiting. I ordered items on the menu which people had raved about online: the chapchae simple stir fry and Soon Tofu. Tofu Village has great service and is a cheap and cheerful spot to enjoy a selection of traditional home cooked Korean dishes but still has me on the search for an elevated Korean dinning experience.
