Favorite Tofu Dishes?
Where can I find some outstanding Tofu dishes in the LA area? I love the Eat Phamish truck's tofu- it's unlike any i've ever had. i LOVE the tofu at GO VEGGIE, they marinate it with garlic, soy sauce, and lemon juice however it's too far. i'm looking for suggestions that are more than just tofu and green curry from thai restaurants. Thanks!
I like BCD Tofu House...open 24 hours and they have several locations.
Curry House in Little Tokyo. They also have a good Italian/Japanese veggie selection of pastas.
Mr. Ramen in Little Toyko has a really good tofu and seaweed salad...also, they have a whole selection of ramen served with veggie broth instead of pork.
The Vegen Plate in Studio City is also really good veggie thai.

The best tofu dishes, IMO, are in the San Gabriel Valley. There are too many to name. For example, at Mei Long Village (one of the more Westerner friendly restaurants in the SGV, menu link below), try these dishes:
Preserved vegetable with bean curd sheet
Diced dry bean curd with brocolli stalk
At Shanghai Restaurant, try the vegetarian duck. (Mei Long Village may have this terrific classic dish too, but it's not evident from the menu).
Try Burmese tofu at Yoma in the SGV. This is actually made from chickpeas, not soybeans, but it's yum.
Look for spicy bean curd shreds in the pre-prepared-food bars at Szechuan restaurants in the SGV.
Homemade fresh tofu is yum too. One place you can get it is at Mori Sushi in West LA.
Tofu cheesecake at Real Food Daily is pretty good.
