4229 Convoy St., yelp reviews
Convoy Tofu House is one of the better Korean diners on the street. It’s a medium-sized no-nonsense kinda place, with the usual K-Pop playing on the TV monitors.
The banchan – all the little pre-meal veggies – are fine but don’t stand out; for more interesting banchan I suggest Josun or Friends’ House, both on the Northern end of Convoy. The grilled meats are of the standard deliciousness: I’ve never had a pile of Galbi ribs I didn’t like. But the stews – particularly the staple sundubu – are just right: the heavy red broth contrasting with tofu so light it vanishes on your tongue. Abracadabra!
I’m especially enamored of a lunch combo available here: a small tofu stew and a small bibimbap, with all the veggies, for like $10. This solves the perennial problem of whether to go hot and heavy or light and refreshing: simply order both, breathe deep, and bring balance to the world.
