Soon-Dubu-Jjigae (Spicy Soft Tofu Soup), Godeungyeo-Qui (Grilled Mackerel) and Banchan

Cho Won Garden Korean Restaurant is a small and rather homely dining place, just a few minutes away from Tanjong Pagar MRT station. We had decided to step in as we just saw a group of 8 Koreans walking into the restaurant. Similarly, there were already a few tables of Koreans inside Cho Won and that further affirmed our decision to have our dinner there.

We ordered 2 mains – Soon-Dubu-Jjigae (Spicy Soft Tofu Soup, $13) and Godeungyeo-Qui (Grilled Mackerel, half $10). The tofu soup was adequately spicy; the spicy level was acceptable to the palate, yet strong enough to provide that kick. The tofu was very soft, silky and smooth. There were also cubes of pork and clams in the soup. It was a very simple, comforting soup to enjoy.

The grilled mackerel was also pretty decent. This dish was very straightforward, no frills – just a fresh mackerel grilled to perfection. Not overly oily, fish was tender and well-seasoned. Simple, rustic, home made dishes, accompanied by flavourful banchan, rounded up this decent Korean meal.
