HODO SOY BEANERY
It was the idea of owner, Minh Tsai, to bring the artisan
quality tofu of his childhood in Vietnam to his local
community. The enthusiastic response his tofu received enabled him to open the Beanery, and this month he is expanding production by taking over the facility in Sacramento formerly occupied by Sacramento Tofu.
We are currently stocking Hodo’s Firm Tofu. It is packed dry rather than in water and doesn’t crumble like water packed tofu. Try it in Chef Chelsea’s Tofu with Heirloom Red Rice and Kimchi.
