Cheap and cheerful Korean place, nestled in the marina plaza shopping center. I've been walking past this place for years, because it's called a 'Tofu cabin'.

We are regulars at Myung Dong. The service is always very attentive. The owner and the waitress are always very smily. We always order the soon tofu, Galbi Tang and the BBQ dishes. They all taste delicious and so are their variety of side dishes.

Been here twice now during my visits to San Francisco...the ladies there are very nice and always so happy. I got the galbi full order. Delicious! The side plates are delicious as well, the seaweed is my favourite! Great casual place to eat

This is a must for our family. When we all gather, we all want to go here - young and old alike - something that pleases all of our palates. The food is fresh, delicious and very generous portion sizes.
