    "A chain of 24-hour, diner-style Korean restaurants... Soon Tofu stew [is] meticulously flavorful, at around nine bucks, served with a whole fried covina fish and a half-dozen banchan." –5 Every Day Read more

    I would suggest doing the combo meals so you can get some soondubu but also try their galbi. It was so so so good! They make nurungi from your leftover rice in the pots, great way to end the meal!

    A bubbling bowl of hot, spicy Korean tofu stew is going to be one of the most satisfying late night eats in town, and BCD makes up a more the adequate bowl. Read more

    It's the too go place for awesome Korean BBQ and Tofu soup! It's like Korean's McDonalds. You can expect to get your order exact the same each time. Fast and delicious!

    Their soon tofu is the best! Their combos are amazing too! So much food at a great price! They also recently renovated so it's a lot bigger and better also!

    The perfect spot for late night grub (open 24/7) and you get a free fish with each entree!

    My favorite place to have great quick authentic Korean food in LA. Prices are relatively cheap for LA. It's open 24/7 so go whenever. The mackerel is really great!

    The Dangerous spicy level is false... Not spicy at all. all of their soon dubus are good. The combos come with smaller soon dubus and only in the assorted flavor. Galbi is surprisingly tasty.

    Delicious tofu and so authentic, be careful that "mild" already quite spicy for european people ;-)
  • John M.
    Their seafood soon tofu + galbi combo (w/ free fried fish appetizer) is still a classic, especially if you’ve had a few drinks .

    The #2 Soon Tofu Soup with Shrimp, Beef and Clams is seriously the best. Make sure to drop in the egg right when you get it and then stir it in. The yolk richens the broth. Mmmmm

    As the token white guy, I can say start with medium spicy if you're not sure. I promise it's still pretty hot! I like #22.

    Had the beef mushroom tofu pot. Not bad. Interesting bc they give you a small fish with the other Korean appetizers and put water in your rice bowl so you can't eat the crispies :(

    Soondubu is always great. They seem to progressively skimp on Kalbi portions each time I visit. It just looks sad now.

    Bcd has gone down hill since the remodel. Prices are higher, No more spicy claim side dishes, tofu broth is not as rich anymore. If you're drunk it probably all tastes the same, though
