When it comes to tofu stews in Singapore, there’s no place that does it better than SBCD Korean Tofu House. As fans of the brand since its inception, we were excited to try out their latest dish – The Hong Ge Soontofu.
Hong Ge, also known as the Red Crab in English, hails from the exclusive waters of North-Eastern Asia. With its consistent climate and cooler temperatures, Red Crab meats are well-known to be sweeter, tender and plump, making it the perfect accompaniment to the robust, savoury tofu stew.
Freshly hand-made daily, SBCD Korean Tofu House specialises in soontofu using specially imported soybeans from Paju, South Korea. The tofu stews usually come with varying levels of spiciness but we chose the standard level this time round.
While their mainstay dish is already very good on its own, the Korean Red Crab definitely elevates them to the next level. Though the highlight of this dish was supposedly the Red Crab, all of our bowls were filled to the brim with an extremely generous portion of other seafoods such as prawns and clams.
Usually, we’d tend to stay away from seafoods because of their strong fishy stench but this dish stole a piece of our hearts and our initial reluctance vanished with each bite of the sweet, white meat. There was no stench at all, in fact every piece of seafood was so fresh, it felt as if we were transported to the Korean seas. The main star of this dish is the red crab but we can definitely say that the prawns, clams, tofu and soup each deserve a spot in the limelight as well.
Thanks to their partnership with the Korean Fishery Association which has established the national K-Fish licensing brand, SBCD Korean Tofu House has direct access to the freshest, highest quality seafoods from South Korea. At the same time, this partnership gives us the opportunity to indulge in some of Korea’s finest cuisines, including those that can hardly be found here in Singapore.
We’re so glad this monster of a dish happened and for that, we give the Hong Ge Soontofu, a solid ten out of ten. The Hong Ge Soontofu is available at SGD23.90++ for a limited time only–while stocks last!
