Good Tofu but in small amounts

You can pre-order tofu that is freshly made by the owner but be careful and eat it with metes and bounds - it had a purgative effect on me..

Else you can also buy curry paste, soy sauce, etc. for a fair price. They also sell packed tofu (for 18 dt per 150 g).

My go-to for asian food products

I highly recommend following/regularly checking their FB page to stay updated on what's in stock and what they currently have. Everything is understandably pricy, but it's still cheaper than anywhere else u might find their products in Tunis. I personally buy a bottle of light soy sauce and it'll sustain my household fot several months before I have to stop by again. Always double check the ingredients as this isn't a vegan specialty shop, but there is a great wealth of vegan condiments, snacks, and drinks. The coconut cream is absolutely amazing and to die for. The homemade tofu is also delicious and has a nutty flavor you won't find in most ready-made tofu.

The shop is located in a bit of an awkward location to access by car. They also provide delivery services, but I haven't tried it. Store is small but every item is price labeled and has an ingredients translation in English, French, and Arabic. The cashier will also help you out if you have any questions about what condiments to use.

Pros: Lots of vegan options, Condiments for any asian cuisine, Stock is often refreshed

Cons: Understandably pricy, Some products aren't as high quality as others, Watch out for non vegan ingredients

Many Vegan Products!

China Town Store is a treasure trove for vegans seeking ingredients that are otherwise difficult to come by in Tunis. The store is small, but the shelves are stocked with a surprising number (I counted several dozen!) of vegan products. In addition to staple items like grains (brown rice, millet, mixed grains), noodles (rice, soya, wheat, and potato), and beans (mung and red), one can find several types of seaweed, dried shitake mushrooms, miso paste, soya milk, black bean paste, aloe juice, sesame seeds, coconut milk, and shredded coconut. Condiments include soya sauces, vinegars, sesame oil, teriyaki sauce, and curry paste. Pre-packed vegetables include pickled radish, mustard green, and bamboo shoots. This is just a sample of the dozens of vegan food products you’ll find at China Town Store!

Owner Valérie and her staff are friendly and knowledgeable, and they keep the store clean and organized. Prices are reasonable, particularly considering that many of these items are a rarity in Tunis. Be sure to put in an order for their homemade tofu -- it’s delicious!

Pros: many vegan foods, owner speaks English, homemade tofu
