Hosoonyi

Recommended

Hosoonyi reportedly serves some of the best Korean food in Seattle, with some eaters going so far as to rank it among the restaurants in New York’s Koreatown. This Edmonds strip-mall restaurant is known for its soon-doo-boo, or soft tofu stew. The soon-doo-boo is served in superheated earthenware pots with a brick-red broth that seethes angrily around white curds of tofu. While it’s still hissing, a server adds raw egg to the mix. The soup turns out to be pleasantly hot—no temple dabbing or hyperventilation, just a happy burn that dissipates fairly quickly. The pork and kimchi that flavor the soup are still detectable, and the texture is luscious. Other standouts include the dak bulgogi and the Korean pancakes with squid and green onions. Service is notoriously spotty.
