Sundubu Jjigae (순두부찌개) / Korean Soft Tofu Stew

Any good place to get authentic sundubu in San Diego? I would prefer it as a meal in itself complete with banchan, not just a small portion to compliment a Korean bbq experience (though, am also curious which Korean bbq places have good sundubu as well). Had it in Korea and it was awesome...spicy and served bubbling.

  1. I’ve no idea about authenticity, but my favorite is Convoy Tofu House (the one south of Balboa, not the one next to O’brien’s). I’ve had sundubu at most of the Korean places in Convoy and I find their broth to be notably richer than anyone else’s. And pretty much every Korean place around here will give you banchan.

    1. I agree, convoy tofu house is the best one that I know of. I was directed there by my korean friends. The soup and tofu are superior to any other place I've tried in san diego, tofu house and grandma tofu.
