Spicy Tofu Soup


No recipe for this one, because I didn't make it... it came from the Korean restaurant down the street, Seoul Food. It gets fairly mixed reviews mainly because the woman who runs it is a little... eccentric? She's hard to describe, but this anecdote should work: if you order bibimbap in a "stone pot" and haven't scraped your rice down into your bowl (to get that nice caramelized rice action) by the time she comes to check up on you... then she does it for you, giving a brief tutorial on the intricateness of bibimbap consumption as she does so.

This seems to rub some stereotypically cold New Englanders the wrong way, but we like it, and joke about how we don't want her to yell at us for letting our take out get cold.
