“Best soondooboo in the area!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2013

Lighthouse is one of my favorite Korean restaurants.

This isn't one of the places where there's a grill in front of you and you manually barbecue your meats. Lighthouse specializes in soondooboo (tofu stone bowls) varieties, and they've nearly perfected their recipe for these dishes. I'm a huge fan of their soondooboo. Even if you don't particularly like spicy (like me), there are 5 grades on Lighthouse's spicy scale from not spicy at all to the super hot. Most Koreans like it nearer to the super hot extreme, but when my Korean friends tasted my non-spicy, they thought it was just as good as the super hot ones.
