“A fiery tofu soup that will make you forget every bad thing you ever thought about tofu. A spicy, spicy, red broth and tofu are the base. We’re talking soft tofu here with the texture of, like, buratta. And from there you have a handful of variations but the most common is with kimchi with a bit of everything: beef, oysters, mussels, clams. Oh and table side, they crack an egg in there!” – Anthony Bourdain, Parts Unknown
