Tofu a Go-Go, Greenfield

fame da lupo Jun 7, 2008 01:53 PM

Greenfield has a nice little gem with this fun restaurant. Vegetarian and vegan offerings, good flavors and excellent menu (were several things that interested me). I had a tempeh reuben that was tasty, and tried a couple other morsels off my friends' plates which were also good. The owners/staff are fantastic and the place is decorated with humor. Good place for a lunch or something light. A concept well executed.

    Thanks for posting - this place has been on my radar for a while, but for some reason, it's eluded me so far. I will definitely check it out....

      Sounds great! Where exactly is it? Sounds like it's worth a trip.

        It's on the main strip, across from Wilson's.

          If it's still around this coming winter, I will definitely eat there after skiing Berkshire East in Charlemont.

        Had brunch there yesterday with a huge group. The food was fantastic! I had a breakfast burrito and was also able to snag a bite (before they disappeared!) of the special banana pancakes. Everything tasted really yummy. Service was so quick and friendly, considering how many of us arrived all at once. They also have a great tea selection, which I loved.

        If you drink coffee and take cream, its BYO cream or milk since they only have soy milk.

          I am always envious of places that cater to vegans and vegetarians. Living in Metrowest Boston, it can be difficult to eat out. It must be empowering to actually have choices! And not be a pain in the neck when you ask so many questions about how food is prepared. Next time I am out in that area I will definitely eat there.

            Just wanted to post an update. I've been back to Tofu A Go-Go many times since my initial post and every menu item I try is *amazing*! Really, really good food. I think having tofu in the name may be off-putting for some, but really the food is so delicious and you won't miss the meat. And you don't even have to eat tofu. There are lots of pasta dishes and burritos and stir fry's and everything is made fresh. I hear that during the week they have pasta dinner specials and that the penne vodka is killer, so I'll have to try them for dinner as well.

            If you haven't been, please try this fantastic eaterie asap and support local/independent business. The prices are budget friendly and the food is delicious.

              I am pretty much addicted to the Thai burrito and the crack tofu.

              Eating at Tofu A Gogo is a lot like eating in someone's kitchen, just my kinda joint.

              We finally made the trek up to Greenfield for late lunch/dinner and wonder why we waited so long. The Crack Tofu appetizer was a generous helping, served on skewers with the most interesting flavoring. The peanut sauce is not the creamy oriental stuff, but chunky, homemade and It was delicious !!. The same can be said for the lesley burritto, overstuffed and also delish! The rice,beans and greens were good, but we should have tried a more adventurous item. The cold scallion bowl was light and also good, but would be great on a warm summer night. The chewy square was a great way to end the meal and a bill of under $25.00 was fantastic. The decor and atmosphere reminded me of some of the fun vegan cafes of San Francisco & Seattle. Not for the 'fine dining' crowd, but I've never seen a good veggie restaurant that was. Gets my best recomendation.

                I finally made it to Tofu A Go-Go and was not disappointed. The food was great. Of course I had to have the Crack Tofu appetizer and I just loved it, moist with little crunch. The Giant Rodan was excellent. The rice, beans, miso soup, greens, veggies and seaweed were fresh and well prepared and not overly salty. My husband had the Pink Pierogies (appetizer) made with red cabbage and served with vegan sour cream. He also had the Really Good Burrito Dinner which lived up to it's name. Really fresh and well prepared and not overly salty (I know I am repeating myself, but most places over salt everything). I also like that they don't use processed meat substitutes, these people really know how to cook vegan food. There were so many good things on the menu, it was hard to choose. They also had a $20 3 course meal special for Valentine's Day. The owners are really nice and eager to please. It was great to be around so many happy vegetarians. "Honey, we are not in Hopkinton any more!"

                  Many, many times. What do you want to know? They have a brunch menu specifically and there are always specials on the board, however, you can order any item from any of the menus (lunch, dinner) if you're craving something specific that's not on the brunch menu.
