Tasty Takes — Dukbokki from Convoy Tofu House in Kearny Mesa

Dubokki

Dukbokki from Convoy Tofu House

Long, cylindrical, gelatinous rice cakes, onion, carrot, cabbage, hard boiled egg and odeng in a peppery, sweet, earthy sauce. Odeng is a fish “cake” pressed into sheets that can be cut into strips, or in this case, triangles.

Sometimes people say of certain dishes, “it’s not as spicy as it looks.” Oh, it’s spicy. If you like spice, try Korean food. There’s a slow burn though, so beware. It starts with sweet, then that earthy, fishy taste, and then when you almost think it’s over, the heat. And it builds with every bite.

If you can’t stand the heat, there are mild dishes on the menu at Convoy Tofu House, they just aren’t as fun or clearing to the sinuses. Be sure to try one of the most popular menu items – the tofu soup in all the different configurations. Also, there’s a sushi bar in a separate room in the back.
