Locally Made Tofu

  • r

Does anyone know where one can buy homemade/ freshly-made tofu in the LA area?

  1. I'm sure there's all kinds of places in heavily Asian neighborhoods, but in my neighborhood, there's Soycafe at 1997 Hyperion in Silver Lake. Homemade tofu, soy milk, tofu bahn mi, etc.

      Soycafe for sure. Viet is going to start teaching tofu making workshops at some point!

    2. I know one of the chefs at Asanebo in studio city makes his own sesame tofu. It's good..but you can only order is as a dish, not as a take home kind of thing.

        It's pronounced AWSOMENEBO!

        Just ask Joe Walsh! He's the guy at the end of the bar
        with the hat on!

          Mori at Mori Sushi also makes and serves own tofu, but you can only order it as a dish. It was sold once a week at a market in Venice (forgot the name) but they don't sell it anymore.

        2. There are a couple of tofu makers in the Monterey Park/San Gabriel area.

            1. the one in gardena, the same place as mochi-mochi has posted, seems to make fresh tofu in a japanese traditional style. i've also seen their tofu at markets around so cal, though mostly japanese markets. i also heard they distribute their tofu to some restaurants around la. if you ever make your way over there, their "supreme tofu" is a must try tofu. you probably won't find anything as good as that one, at least not in the west coast...
