Youngdong Tofu

Noticed a new tofu place in Chino Hills going down Grand Ave before Peyton and checked it out a while back.

Standard iceberg lettuce salad to start, but for the life of me, I cannot remember what this dressing tasted like.

Complimentary been deh dduk (mung bean pancake) that was a good size for two people to share as a small appetizer.

The banchan included three types of kimchi (the top right were two large green peppers, which I enjoyed the most) along with the standard bean sprouts, seaweed w/ gochoojang, and spicy marinated squid.

Jengban Gooksoo. Underneath the greens, veggies, egg and krab was a solid amount of buckwheat noodles. The waitress then marched out with a pitcher of the "dressing" and steadily poured a sort of sweet soy sauce/vinegar mix over it all, as you can see in the picture above. I've only had this dish once, and the sauce they gave was more of a gochujang based thinned out sauce, so I was a bit surprised. If you order this, you'll probably want to share with another person. While I did like the fresh taste of veggies, the sauce got old real fast for me, and although I put a pretty good dent in it (I also shared), I didn't want to finish the rest.

My dad got the seafood mix tofu, no heat, just white. He said he liked it. You can see a lone shrimp peaking out on the left corner there...looks like he's just chillin in a jacuzzi. Except he's dead.

No complaints about the service. I'd come here again to check out the tofu soup for myself.
