  1. Not sure if you consider this within the city limits, but I just bought some at Highland Farms at dufferin and finch.

    1. T&T has them, as does P.A.T. Central Market.

      I'm not 100% sure, but I assume you could get them at Sanko or J-Town as well.

        UPDATE: Was in Sanko today, they do have them.

          Has anyone tried them? I bought them once a few years ago and thought the texture was really odd. I'd try them again if I heard some positive feedback and possibly cooking techniques that might improve the texture.

          1. re: 1sweetpea

            I used them before and found they were good if you added them to a frozen meal (like a Lean Cuisine type meal with similar shaped noodles) to bulk up the amount of food without added calories. Most important thing is to not heat them too much and to make sure they are really dry.

            1. re: 1sweetpea

              I'm not eating them because I like them. I'm on a diet and it's a substitution for regular noodles.

        2. Whole Foods, but for much more money than at T&T or PAT.

          1. I get them at PAT, but Fiesta Farms carries tofu shirataki, too.

            1. re: piccola

              Note that for diet purposes, the tofu version has significantly more calories/carbs/etc.

              1. re: detritus

                Totally. Though it's still way less than regular noodles.

            2. Lucky Moose supermarket at Dundas, corner with Beverley.

              1. I've seen them at Longos in the tofu/fresh salad dressing section.

                  Found them at my local Longos.
