I got into Soondooboo during the cold NYC winters; however, when I'm back in my hometown of SF and I want some home style Korean cooking, My Tofu house is the sure thing! Good lunch specials too!

We had an early dinner at Kabul and it was great - the restaurant was not too crowded. The interior was very nice, the service was good, and the food was excellent.

One entree is more than enough to fill you up - I had the vegetable combo dish and loved it but couldn't finish it.

Price was reasonable - it came out to about $14/person (w/tax and tip, w/o alcohol or drinks).

Kabul is located in a strip mall which is not in the very best of shape, but don't let this keep you away. It is across from the Days Inn and Holiday Inn Express for folks who are coming out of town.

My Tofu House is a small Korean restaurant located on Geary. It is usually very crowded, so do try and come early or later than regular eating hours. The tofu soup is delicious. The food was very satisfactory and the service was good. The other Korean BBQ items smelled equally as good. The inside is small and a bit cramped but well maintained. Come here and try some Korean tofu.

The Tofu soup is what kept me going back! The service was awsome, especially when the ajima was there... she welcomes and goodbyes me in and out. The korean guy server there was pretty cute... at least something to look at while waiting for the food to come.The first time when I went there was with the entire high school badminton team and they tried their best service on our picky little girls. Several times with I went there with my close friends, they gave us prompt seatings. When I went with my parents, I feel like this is a family oriented restaruant. Not a lot of variety to choose, but if you crave for something specific and traditional, this is the place to go for!

Pros: Tofu Soup, Cute server, Friendly ajima

Finally made it over to My Tofu House per friends' recommendations. I have to preface this by mentioning that my omani can throw down in the kitchen so I is spoiled.

It's a good sign when there is already a line at 6pm on a Friday night. An even better sign? When a lot of people in said line are Korean. For a party of 4, we didn't wait long but it's a small place so I wouldn't recommend going with a crowd.

The banchan (small side dishes) were solid --- about 6 different kinds, good variety, and tasty so we had to get refills. I ordered the seafood dubuchigae. I would recommend getting the medium level of spiciness. My friend ordered mild which she found to be too mild but she added some kimchi to it so problem solved. I thought the chigae was great! This is evidenced by the fact that even though my mind was saying: must... stop... eating... my stomach was saying: mmm... want ... more! Next thing I knew, I was scraping the bottom of the chigae bowl and feeling the onset of a severe food coma.

The service was friendly but not attentive since there were only 2 servers for everyone. But for yummy chigae for $10, who's stressing? Also, if you are looking for ambiance or fab decor My Tofu House is not the place for you.

I've been coming here for almost 2 years and I have to say it is the best for the Tofu Soup and grilled chicken! Selection is simple - kind of like In-N-Out, but tastes great!

My favorite neighborhood korean restaurant.

I've been going here since they first opened and I have been pleased with every single meal. I've been to tofu places in NY and Seattle and this one is just up to par. I've tried their seafood and kimchee tofu soups along with the bbq beef and spicy pork. They all hit the spot and are very authentic. I hope they don't change.

I love it! This is my most favorite Korean restaurant in SF.
I have had every Korean soft tofu in almost every Korean town from coast to coast, but this is the best. If you love hot and spicy, you cannot miss this boiling melting pot.
Barbecues are also fantastic. Juicy and soft Kalbi is my real favorite.
It is usually crowded every evening, especially weekend, so you'd better hurry.

The specialty here is the spicy tofu soup. They add other ingredients based on which version you order, some of the most popular ones have seafood or beef. The broth is pretty spicy because the main ingredient is red chili, which gives it its reddish tone. During the peak times (weekend lunch and dinner) the line can be so long that it spirals out the door. The food is good, but I would not wait in such a long line for it.

In Short
Sundubu, spicy Korean tofu soup, is the specialty here, and arrives loaded with meats and seafood (or can be prepared with kim chee for vegetarians); the accompanying egg should be cracked into the broth while…
