great korean tofu house in San Diego

I lived for a couple years in San Diego. My favorite restaurant there was the
Balboa Tofu House at 4646 Convoy in the Kearny Mesa area. It is a Korean
restaurant that serves only one main dish--soft tofu cooked in broth. But you
can choose from over twenty different additions to the broth (clams or pork
or mushrooms or pollack roe etc.) and can have the broth prepared any way
from bland to fiery. the main course is served with either white or brown
(actually purple) rice and several spicey Korean side dishes, like kim chee
and seaweed in a spicey sauce. This is a unique and wonderful and inexpensive
place. I can't recommend it too highly, and I miss it terribly.
