Best mul naeng myun in San Diego?

What with the hot summer days, I found myself craving mul naeng myun (cold buckwheat noodles in broth). However, a bit of searching has me puzzled as to where the best naeng myun might be found.

Dae Jang Keum and Noodle Town came up, but KirkK said DJK was only "ok" -- does anyone have any suggestions?

    Tofu House, the one south of Balboa has mul naeng myun that is decent. Won't blow your socks off like in Korea Town but can satisfy a craving.
    Buga used to have good mul naeng myun but they changed their noodles which are now really thin and not nice and chewy.

      Yeh, I was very disappointed in the noodles the last time I was at Buga. Thanks for the Tofu House tip

      Note the locater has the wrong tofu house linked. It should be the Convoy Tofu House, 4229 Convoy.

      I tried Dae Jang Keum and it was not that great, to be honest. I don't think I will try it again. Noodle Town has been replaced by Mapo BBQ Korean Cuisine. Next time I'll try Convoy Tofu House.
