So Gong Dong moves back near original site

So Gong Dong has moved from McCully Shopping Center back to the Keeaumoku area, near its original location. Above, it's best known for soondobu, or tofu soup.

After closing up shop at McCully Shopping Center Oct. 3, So Gong Dong moved back near to where it originally opened in 1997, in the Keeaumoku Street area on Makaloa Street.

Now owner Steve Lee is back, this time in a more prominent location at Makaloa and Keeaumoku streets, across from Walgreen's and Wal-Mart. Timing for the opening is just right, as no doubt there will be a lot of people milling around the vicinity over the holiday shopping rush.

During a grand opening that took place Nov. 14, Lee put some of his specialties on the table, foremost being his soon dubu, a spicy tofu soup made from condensed collagen from beef bone marrow.

The restaurant is at 627 Keeaumoku St. Call 946-8206.

I love chop chae!

Stir-fried rice cake.

I was back for seconds of seafood and green onion pancakes.

  1. Very effective stylization of the attractive woman, absorbed in her sewing. Nice flowing purple cloth leading into the distance. Quite different, and somehow the same, as this woman resting from her sewing in a sunny garden, painted by American impressionist artist Frederick Carl Frieseke, http://EN.WahooArt.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-8DP6G8. The painting can be seen at wahooart.com, and ordered as a canvas print.
