The rundown: Tofu takes over S.F.'s Japantown at the first annual Soy and Tofu Festival tomorrow.

Sample many varieties of delicious dishes like mapo tofu, yuba, salads, tofu sushi, natto and more. Plus many food vendors like Traveling Takoyaki, SFoodie's favorite Hodo Soy Beanery and popular lunch crowd food truck JapaCurry. They'll be live music and performances of hula, ukulele, rapping (for real), Okinawa sanshin, and S.F. Taiko Dojo Rising Stars. Dope.
