This bare-bones Korean joint specializes in soft tofu stews. Of the many options at Book Chang Dong to add to your bean curd-clam, oyster, oxtail, mushroom-classic kimchi and pork is the best. Ask for it extra spicy and you'll be rewarded with a brick red broth burbling with soft cooked onions, kimchi, curds of tofu and shards of pork. Crack in a raw egg for extra richness. Banchan, traditional Korean side dishes, are spectacular and generous. Even a single diner, who has ordered a stew that costs less than $10, gets an array that includes cabbage and cucumber kimchi, pickled sprouts, egg custard, candied anchovies, and two slabs of marinated tofu.
