Tofu tidbits

I had two really good tofu experiences in the last few days to share. First, the homemade tofu at Torafuku (on Pico just west of the Westside Pavillion) is reminiscent of some really good stuff I've had in Japan. It's so smooth and silky and custardy, and the accompanying sauce and grated ginger give it an interesting balance of sweet and pungent. Try it.

The house special tofu at Golden City in Chinatown is one of the best tofu dishes I've had in a chinese restaurant. I was eating with my vegetarian sister and thought it would be a good choice, since I also enjoy tofu. This tofu, unlike the majority of tofu I've eaten in chinese restaurants, was almost as silky and delicate as the stuff from torafuku. Though it came deep fried and stir fried with a sauce and broccoli. The rest of the meal at Golden City was excellent, but that tofu was a standout.
