Great place to visit for some traditional tofu restaurants. The tofu here is different as in other places because saltwater is used which makes the tofu soft. I really liked it. I ate at 농촉순두부 restaurant and had some tofu ice cream at 초당110. Give...More

After reading so much about sundubu (fresh tofu) as a specialty in Gangneung on the east coast of Korea, we decided to give it a try after walking the searoad or badabuchaegil. We headed to Chodang village and chose a restaurant without a queue and...More

Short street lined with tofu shops. Some specialized in seafood, so check out store front pictures. Felt welcomed even though English was basically "hot" or "no hot". CC accepted. Also had a popular tofu ice cream. Daytime hours are best.

This street is famous for popular dishes with Tofu and fish. You can order soup or thick curry with rice. It’s quit spicy but still worth trying because of speciality of the area. Recommended. Cost around 30,000 for 2 persons.

Sundubu means fresh tofu in Korea. The best place to try their special version of tofu here in Gangneung. Since it locates near the sea, the best ingredient to make the tofu is sea water instead of usually plaster. The "Chodang" tofu tastes just wonderful,...More
