Organic Tofu House

Kimchi soft tofu stew (soondubu-jjigae): served bubbling and spiced to your liking. This was mild, which was flavorful with just enough heat.  

I love to learn about different cultures, and I think the best place to start is through traditional foods.

If you have a craving for something new, Organic Tofu House in Ridgewood is sure to please. This quaint Korean restaurant serves authentic cuisine that you have to try.

My boyfriend isn’t the adventurous type when it comes to food. And me? I’ve been on a vegetarian kick for a couple of months.

Both of us were looking for a casual dinner spot that wasn’t our typical neighborhood tavern, and since our friend who lives in Ridgewood recommended Organic Tofu House, we decided to step out of our culinary comfort zones and give it a try. 

Their menu isn’t extensive but has something for everyone - which was perfect in our situation.

Stir-fry noodles with beef (japchae): I managed to swipe a noodle or two from my boyfriends plate - so different and so delicious.

Kimchi scallion pancake (kimchijeon): a massive and mouthwatering appetizer.    

Our menu:

We shared a kimchi scallion pancake (kimchijeon) which was crisped to perfection. My kimchi soft tofu stew (soondubu-jjigae) was unreal, and my boyfriend completely polished off his plate of stir-fry noodles with beef (japchae).

Make sure you're hungry, because the portions are generous! The staff is excellent and were happy to answer any of our questions.

If you've never had Korean cuisine, Organic Tofu House is the perfect place to start.

88 Godwin Ave in Ridgewood for dine-in or takeout.
