Smoked tofu in Toronto?

Is smoked tofu available anywhere in Toronto?

  1. We regularly buy tofu bacon from YingYing. I think they use a natural liquid smoke for flavour. It's really good. Anyway, just went on to their website and it looks like they have smoked tofu as well - here's a link:

      Is this traditional smoked tofu as would be used in Hunan cuisine (Fuchsia Dunlop's book calls for it, for example)?

        Hi hari mirch - sorry, but I don't know the answer to your question. I've never actually seen their smoked tofu, just bought the tofu bacon. The couple who runs the company shows up at a lot of the farmer's markets (I've seen them at The Brickworks before) so you could ask them or visit their shop in SLM. My gut tells me you might find something more traditional in Chinatown or at T&T but I don't know Hunan cuisine well enough to say. Good luck.

    2. St. Lawrence Market, south bld, lower level, across from the bakery.

      1. Most asian supermarkets have them - in the refrigerated section with the regular tofus. There are many varieties and not sure which ones you are in search for. Often it would say smoked tofu in chicken or duck flavors.

          Huh. I've never found it in my usual markets in Chinatown. I guess I'll look closer.

        2. I've seen (and bought) it in regular grocery stores like Loblaws and Metro.

          1. The Big Carrot carries it.
