Tofu Soup & Beef Rice @ Hanppy Tofu Pot House

Although I had heard about Hanju Tofu Hot Pot for the longest of times, I never actually tried it until they changed their name to Hanppy Tofu Pot House recently.  Apparently, it's still exactly the same as it was under the previous name.



The korean style bbq with rice (~$7) was the only non-soup item on their specials menu, if I recall correctly.  It was sort of like a bibimbap except with different toppings.  I have to say, I enjoy the traditional bibimbap toppings, including the shiitake mushrooms and bean sprouts more.  Instead, this had a lot of cabbage and some tofu with mild hot sauce.  It was alright for what it was worth.



The kimchi hot pot (~$7) was alright. I kind of regretted ordering this, since the seafood hot pot looked like it was of better value.  Still, I couldn't finish this as it was quite large.  The soup tasted a bit sour from the kimchi, but I found that there weren't that many kimchi slices inside.  There wasn't a lot of beef either -- maybe two small pieces in total.  The clear rice noodles were generous in proportion though.

While the food was not as spectacular compared to that of House of Tofu Soup, it was significantly cheaper.  The portions were large, and there was definitely more than enough to feed the both of us.  I was slightly disappointed that there were no side dishes, but at this price, I can't really complain.

it's taiwanese-style korean rice and hotpot...if you think of it in its own right then it will be less subpar to house of tofu soup!

Too bad I never got a chance to try it before!

Ahh. That makes sense. I do see a sort of Taiwnanese edge to it, especially with the tofu mixed with sauce on the rice. Thanks!
