    Tofu soup is great. I tried the mixed tofu soup and I love it. Spicy lover must try danger spicy and people who want mild spicy should order standards the rib is good too. Seafood pancake is not bad.

    Come after midnight and you can literally split an entire galbi/kalbi meal with soondubu and hella banchan for around $12 between 2 people. Best, probably yummiest late night deal in NYC ❤️

    If you're Korean and like marinated crabs, try their spicy crabs here! Really bang for your buck and tasty! They cut it up into easy pieces so you don't have to get your hands dirty as much.

    Excellent jap chae, definitely worth a try. If you're a vegetarian, don't be surprised by the fish they bring out, just tell them you don't eat it. Overall good option as a solo diner. Quick service.

    Serves great Korean food. Really yummy soft tofu soup (soondubu) in Koreatown. Nice side dishes and fish. I like the mushroom tofu soup. Gets very busy during peak hours, so be prepared to wait.

    Inexpensive and filling spread of high quality Korean eats. The hot pot of fresh tofu with kimchi is amazing. Plus it comes with several delicious sides (and free refills).

    Be prepared to wait. But, delish food on a cold wintery night. Got the mixed seafood and beef soondubu! Lots of food, could feed two peeps! Also, I got it regular spice and it was hot enough!

    Very tasty & reasonably priced K food. Grilled Galbi & spicy pork (cooked in kitchen) were ESP good. On hot days, it gets steamy in here! AC isn't great here. Ban chan are a little lackluster

    The tofu is very good. Crack the egg into the stew as soon as it’s brought to you, boiling.

    Come with a few friends and order a bunch of food to all try. I'd recommend the Soondubu (tofu soup), Spicy Pork Bulgogi, and Bulgogi (rib eye) - all of the dishes were delicious and so flavorful

    Get the Kimchi sondoobu tofu soup with bulgogi & mushrooms ($2 extra). Bulgogi portions look big enough to feed two. Avoid coming with a group unless you want to wait at least 45 minutes.

    Soondubu (tofu soup) is so great! U can opt with or without meat in ur soup. Personal opinion, I'll opt without. After all, what they are good for, tofu right? Just haf a simple soup to taste the tofu

    the soondubu jjigae (spicy tofu stew) is excellent, as are the banchan (side dishes). if you're feeling adventurous, get the spicy raw crab. it's really great with a cold beer.

    In all my years coming here just recently found out no meal here is 100% veg in spite of seeming it (made w/ fish sauce or chicken stock). You can put in the request with your server to make it so.

    Galbi was delicious! The banchan was good, although the kimchi was little, too fresh and not fermented. I loved the japchae & ttekboki shares plates!

    Soondubu with kimchi is amazing. I did danger level and it’s very manageable. Kimchi here is AMAZING and before you can ask for@more it’s replaced.

    The lunch specials are expensive as hell but it's a ton of food? The galbi lunch special seemed even better than those at the more highly touted Kang Ho Dong and Jongro...

    LISTEN: Eat the little fish. Crack the egg in your soup as soon as you get it. The appetizers are free - if you like it, ask for more.

    Place is large, so wait times are short even when the queue seems overwhelming. Service is fast and they do the food justice. Most of clientele is Chinese.

    While their "danger" spice level isn't as fiery as one would assume, BCD serves up a respectable soondubu, complete with an egg and a variety of banchan.
