So Kong Dong – Korean – Atlanta Georgia

A dark, cold night in a dark, cold strip mall plaza. The sound of moving cars on Buford highway rumbled behind us as we took another step closer to So Kong Dong, out of the cold and into the warm embrace of spicy tofu stew and motherly Korean waitresses.

Stepping inside, the decor is like a comfy old house you may see in Korean dramas. Comfy homey feel for comfy homey food. We sit and are immediately greeted by a older Korean lady with a constant smile. They are really nice here and attentive to our water glasses and everything else.

To our delight, we notice there are special combo value meals that combine 1) type of tofu stew with 2) kalbi, the delicious bbq short ribs of korea. I order the seafood and beef stew as well as a pancake while my partner orders the kimchi tofu stew. The kalbi that came on a plate with the stew was one of the most deliciously flavored kalbi I have ever had and the stew was warm and hearty. A perfect dinner to warm up the cold night.
