Hodo Soy Beanery's 5-Spice Nuggets Transcend Tofu Concerns

Five Spice Tofu Nuggets by Hodo Soy Beanery.
Oakland's Hodo Soy Beanery has single-handedly transformed our opinion about tofu being nothing more than a placeholder in a dish. Founder Minh Tsai left a life in finance to start this company after having a deep inspiration to create the kind of soft and versatile tofu he'd get regularly with his grandfather when growing up in Vietnam. This is the gateway company to help tofu skeptics open their minds.

Hodo's 5-Spice Tofu Nuggets are a substantial and versatile product that carry a surprising amount of flavor. The wrinkled cubes are good hot in a stir-fry as an egg substitute, cold cut up in a salad, or just straight out of the container. They're reminiscent of the wrapper found on Japanese inari (tofu skin pouches stuffed with rice), only more dense.

The complete collection of tofu nuggetry (which also includes curry flavor) can be found at local retailers such as Rainbow Grocery as well as the Hodo Soy kiosk in the Ferry Building.
