NY1 reviews Natural Tofu Restaurant
Soondooboo, boiling mini-cauldrons of spicy, silky soft tofu stew, is the specialty at Natural Tofu Restaurant — a busy, inexpensive, Korean spot in Sunnyside, Queens, complete with kitschy, village-like interiors.
Six varieties of tofu stews are available here from vegetarian, to kimchi, to intestine. I recommend their seafood soft tofu with boiled shrimp, clams, mussels and green onions. You can enjoy the customary side dishes while you wait for your soondooboo to cook.
Into a thick clay pot, the chef adds a spoonful of traditional Korean red pepper paste, a pungent mix of oil, chili powder and chili paste. This is how your heat level is determined. A half spoonful means mild. A whole spoonful means spicy, which is how I order it.
