Plain tempeh

I've been living in Vancouver for most of a year, and I have yet to see blocks of plain tempeh in any store. All I can find are sliced packages flavoured to resemble meat, which is not what I'm after. Does anyone know whether it might be available here, and if so, where?

        I'll second this -- Meilita's tempeh is excellent (and cheap!)

          I know zero about tempeh but because of this post I noticed a package of plain "simply soybean" at New Apple on Broadway near MacDonald. I even snapped a photo: it says ready to eat, just heat and serve. $3.99 a package in the cooler.

      2. I believe I've seen it at Famous Foods on Kingsway (just east of King Edward).
