Buk Chang Dong Soon Tofu

Oooof, what a mouthful: that name is way too long. But it doesn't matter here because the food is wonderful. This place of about 60 seats is located in Koreatown right at the corner of Bloor Street W and Clinton. 

I gotta say that the air cobditionning was very welcomed because it was one of those extra hot days when you think you're going to dsie.

hahaha! I'd like it white please.
As soon as we got in, someone was there to guide us to our table and to give us a menu. What's fun is that you can choose the level of spiciness (I love how the least spicy is called 'white'). 

I had the Bibimbap. Oh how lovely it was. You just have to mix the egg into everything and it adds just the level of moisture you need. There's also a hot-ish sauce made with miso that was wonderful in there. I gotta say that the meat was a tad dry but as mentioned above, just adding the egg and the sauce made it way better.

We were also sharing the sides that came with our meals. I think this was my favourite part. Kimchi that was very spicy but oh so good, the sesame marinated bean sprouts were still crunchy and tasty. The beans on the right were not my fave thing: they were too sweet. I am now obsessed with fermented food. I want to have this every day.

All of this plus a simple miso soup cost under 10$! Hey, another reason why I should go back!

Now, let's talk service. Granted we weren't that many in the restaurant, but it was really efficient. Menus, cold water (lord knows we needed that!), and were food were all brought to us in a timely fashion.

And now, the scores!

Food:  8.5
Service: 9

I would go back again in a heartbeat. If you are in Toronto and find yourself in Koreatown, go get yourself some kimchi! On top of it, I think this restaurant has one of the highest score on urbanspoon!
