SF Weekly's Description

The name gives a strong clue to the house specialty: soft tofu soup, aka soon dobu. The nine identically priced versions on the menu are minor variations on the same dish: Beef or seafood broth, a big scoop of silken tofu, seasonings, chile paste to taste (if you're a chile lover, "medium" is mild, and "hot" is medium), and your choice of other ingredients such as shellfish, pork, kimchi, and mushrooms are simmered together until they're cooked and the flavors are blended. Considering the price, the restaurant puts out a generous spread of panchan - kimchis, salads, dried anchovies, and a fried small whole fish - along with a big bowl of rice, a raw egg to poach in the soup, and barley "tea." Alternatively, you can get bi bim bap (rice bowl) or do-it-yourself barbecue. There's no alcohol, so the total bill is guaranteed to be delightfully low.
