Top Quality Japanese/Korean Silken Tofu, Where Art Thou?!?

OK, so my wife is from Japan, and she's a big Tofu Snob.

She even writes about it: http://www.menuism.com/blog/tofu-is-t...

Seriously, she's obsessed.

We used to get a really nice Organic Extra-Silken korean tofu at Epicerie Coreene et Japonaise on Ste. Catherine West, just off the Forum. It was impossibly light and dreamy and would just collapse on contact with a chopstock...the way Silken Tofu should.

But they've stopped carrying it. I asked the owner about it. He said the supplier was too flaky - would have product one week, then not show up for the next two, etc. - so he stopped buying from them.

Every other Tofu brand we've found is yucky. The stuff at Kim Phat doesn't bear talking about. Chinatown is full of gnarly fake-meat style Chinese tofu. The other Korean shops seem to carry only industrial Tetrapak tofu that's Silken in name only.

We're pretty desperate by now. It's putting a serious strain on our marriage.

Where oh where can you find seriously light, fluffy, fresh Korean/Japanese style Silk Tofu in Montreal? There has to be some place...
