House of Tofu Soup

House of Tofu Soup is one of the old standbys for places to go for Korean food for me. It’s been around since I was in high school, and it’s always so nostalgic to eat here! It’s about a ten minute walk from Lougheed Skytrain station, and I recommend the walk because there is very…
