Myung Ga Tofu & Barbecue - 3 stars for Korean Restaurant in Weston, Florida

TANDOORI MASALAWe've been dying to try Myung Ga Tofu & Barbecue all we hear from friends is how absolutely fabulous it is.  This weekend we will see for ourselves. It is located right in town at
1944 Weston Road, Weston FL 33326, phone is 954-349-7337.

A friend brought over some Kim chee for us to try a couple of weeks ago and we loved the unique texture and spiciness of it.

I have a feeling I will love Myung Ga Tofu & Barbecue  because I love authentic international food, especially the varied seasonings.  Exotic spices are  something everyone should try..mix it up a bit..get out of your comfort zone.  In my humble opinion, it makes for a more interesting life experience.  After all, you know what they say: "Variety is the Spice of Life."

I have recently read that the Doral location of this restaurant has closed.  I hope the Weston location stays around for a while.

We finally went last weekend.  First impression, the place was pretty busy with mostly Korean customers... a good sign when seeking  authentic cuisine.  The restaurant was nicely decorated  and the waitstaff wore traditional Korean clothing.  At first, I felt a little intimidated by the menu because I've never experienced Korean food before.  Our waiter wasn't overly anxious to help us out with any kind of brief introduction to the cuisine (an introduction would have been greatly appreciated and probably would have made for a 4 star experience).  I attributed this to our waiter's limited English which was a little difficult to understand.
My 12 year old daughter enjoyed a big bowl of dumpling soup. For appetizers, we tried a Kim-chee pancake, pumpkin soup; both were delicious.  For entrees, we enjoyed the fabulous short ribs and a squid dish (that was a little too spicy- I think we said medium..next time I will say low spice) The entrees came with many small sides: rice,  ice burg lettuce salad, seaweed salad, beansprouts, cucumber salad and potato salad.  Overall, Myung ga Tofu and Barbecue was a nice diversion from the ordinary.  3/4 stars.
