Where can I find yuba?

Shield | Aug 7, 2006 01:48 PM

The NY Times had an article on yuba this weekend, which they describe as "soy's unexpectedly elegant cousin."

Anyone know where in NYC you can get it? The only mention on Chowhound that I've found is http://www.chowhound.com/topics/show/... - which mentions a yuba appetizer at Geido on Flatbush & 7th.

This is what piqued my interest: "...it arrived in a handmade wooden box, simmering in water heated by a piece of charcoal. I fished the opaque sheets from the bubbling water and dipped them in a sauce made from soy, dashi, mirin and fresh wasabi. The flavor was mildly sweet and nutty, and the texture was a revelation: simultaneously tender and chewy, unlike anything I had ever experienced."

Yum.
