Truth be told, I would have liked the NEW SBCD Korean Tofu House at Millenia Walk a lot better IF I haven’t tried BCD Tofu House just recently.

The similarities are uncanny, from the signature dish of Korean Soontofu, the banchan including the special fried fish item, and the name.

BCD Tofu House originated at Los Angeles, named after the restaurant of the owner’s mother-in-law which is “Bukchang Dong”. I last tried it at New York’s 32nd Street and was impressed by the taste and experience.

However, I do not think that BCD and SBCD in Singapore are related, or at least they did not state any form of connection.

Soontofu is a type of jjigae (Korean stew), consisting of freshly curdled tofu, ingredients of meat or seafood, egg and gochujang served in a hot stone pot with white rice on the side.

Similar to the first outlet at Tanjong Pagar Centre, the menu of SBCD Korean Tofu House is divided into Combo Meal, Soontofu, Mains, Appetizer, Rice, and Beverages.

It can get slightly confusing at first glance.

Every Soontofu dish consisted of hand-made tofu made fresh daily, with 4 different levels of spiciness. The recommended Soontofu include Original with beef or pork ($18.90), Assorted ($19.80), Abalone ($29.90).

Other favourite Korean meat dishes include L.A. Galbi ($38.90 for combo), Spicy Grilled Chicken ($28.90 for combo), and Bulgogi Combo ($28.90).

Prices are slightly to the expensive dish, but at least it should be a filling meal.

Customers would be served a selection of banchan, including the favourite Deep Fried Yellow Croaker fish. That to me, was the highlight of the entire meal.

I ordered a medium spicy Assorted, which I remember tasted better at the original Tanjong Pagar branch. Somehow the soup base was rather one-dimensional, taste masked by abundant chilli oil.

Comparison to BCD was inevitable, where the tofu was softer, broth a lot hotter, egg only added in at the table so that it would not be overcooked, and soup base more robust in flavours.

I was glad diners were given complimentary probiotic fermented milk which was quite tasty, and helped ease that feeling of greasiness.

  1. Wish BCD tofu sold their soup starters in Singapore. I tried BCD tofu in NY and its indeed a different level of taste though the similarity is uncanny.
