Giwajib (기와집) is a Korean restaurant. Specializes in tofu.
For 18,000 won per person, the dinner set menu featured 7 dishes, including firm tofu with sautéed kimchi, soft tofu in a shrimp-stock soup, and the restaurant’s signature silky tofu (sundubu) straight up in its own cooking water as the final course, along with other non-tofu items, as well as rice and the standard side dishes. I love tofu of all kinds but found the silky tofu, as good as it was, to be a bit too subtle for my liking. But overall, the meal was characterized by quality grub, no frills, great value.
