S.G.D. The Old Tofu House is a restaurant originated from Seoul since 1962 serving Korean comfort food and you can find it in Jakarta at Pantai Indah Kapuk (PIK) and Pondok Indah Mall (PIM).
S.G.D. is an abbreviation of Sogongdong, an area in Seoul that is known as Myeongdong nowadays, it is the location of S.G.D Tofu House’s first outlet with Sundubu Jjigae or Korean soft tofu stew as their specialty dish.
Since they identify themselves as Korea’s everyday comfort food restaurant, you can expect to find dishes like Sundubu, Flame broil, Albab, Bibimbap, etc. One thing we learned from our visit is that all menu has NO PORK FYI.
S.G.D. The Old Tofu House has two outlets in Indonesia at Pondok Indah Mall and Pantai Indah Kapuk. AnakJajan recently visited the PIK outlet, it has casual ambience with modern Korean touch.
Korean restaurant with tofu as their specialty is quite a rare finding in Jakarta, me and Mr. Jajan have walked pass the restaurant a few times but only managed to visit it recently and honestly we fell in love with the food instantly.
Mix Flame Broil Combo IDR 99.9k
This signature combo dish immediately caught our attention. The combo comes with main course, steamed Rice, Mix Sundubu, Mix Flame Broil, and Mixing Bowl.
Mix Flame Broil consists of beef and octopus stir fried with vegetable in wok using high flame, it was so sooo delicious with amazing nice fiery caramelized sensation in it.
Sundubu is Korean soft tofu stew and AnakJajan honestly gotta admit that S.G.D. makes delicious one! The soup was packed with umami, savory, spicy, rich in flavor. Their homemade tofu was superb, very soft and tasty.
Here’s the recommended way to enjoy S.G.D. Flame Broil Combo menu, put rice, flame broil meat, sundubu or tofu stew in mixing bowl, mix them well and enjoy it. Don’t forget to add kimchi and banchan for extra flavor kick. It was AnakJajan’s first time enjoying this kind of combo and we were IMPRESSED, each scoop was packed quite a punch with festive flavor, masisseoyo!! MUST ORDER!
Bulgogi Sundubu IDR 69.9k
For non spicy version, S.G.D. has Bulgogi Sundubu or soft tofu stew with Korean beef bulgogi which was equally delicious too with balanced sweet and savory flavor.
Dak Kang Jeong IDR 59.9k
Deep fried boneless chicken bites & tteopokki cooked in sweet spicy sauce. The new menu turned out well, even though the chicken bites were covered in sauce, it was not soggy, the sauce was also just in the right level without being too overpowering.
L.A. Galbi IDR 119.9k
LA style grilled beef short ribs with well balanced sweet and salty taste fully marinated into it. Perfect with rice and kimchi.
Dolsot Bibimbap IDR 79.9k
Hot stone mixed rice with various vegetables, egg and beef. It has all the elements we expected from good bibimbap.
Grilled Mackerel IDR 119.9k
Simple looking dish that turned out to be one of our top favorites! We love this kind of dish but honestly it’s quite hard to find good one in town. The mackerel was grilled to perfection with nice crunchy skin, well seasoned already and not fishy at all. SUPER GOOD beyond our expectation.
Jap Chae IDR 59.9k
Classic Korean stir fried glass noodle, nicely seasoned and cooked just the way we expected.
Tteokpokki IDR 49.9k
Another classic Korean dish that turned out to be delicious. Everything was nicely cooked, the sauce has nice consistency and sweet spicy flavor. AnakJajan love the fact that they serve it with fritter, it goes well with rich tteokbokki sauce.
Tofu Pudding IDR 25.5k
It looks very simple and plain but trust me, it tastes AMAZING! The texture is somewhere between mousse and pannacota. It’s like soymilk but in soft jiggly smooth texture.
Overall, WHERE HAVE WE BEEN?! S.G.D. The Old Tofu House is really a great restaurant and worth recommending! Me and Mr. Jajan immediately promised ourselves to come back soon because we enjoyed it so much, the kind of comfort food that we simply wouldn’t get bored with. Daebak!!
