What a treat!

Such a cool experience. Eden Center is a hidden gem packed with unique spots like this. There was so much energy and friendliness here. The tofu reviews were spot on - this is the best tofu I’ve ever had! I tried lemongrass chili and onion mushroom. They’re both packed with flavor and cooked to perfection. I can’t wait to go back again soon.

Nice cheap fried Tofu

We were really excited to try this place based on the reviews. The tofu is good but we were expecting it to be a little better based on the reviews. We've had better tofu. The price is super affordable though.


We went around 4:30pm on a Monday and there were only about 10 people in line all for the sweets area, no one was in line for the tofu.

We frequently asked questions regarding the line as we've seen several negative reviews from customers being belittled because they didn't understand the system. We however had no issues and the staff were not rude. I wouldn't say they were helpful or friendly and could see how during a rush customer service could deteriorate. Hopefully things are changing though.

1lb tofu = $4.24 with tax, amazing deal given how much a block of tofu is at the grocery.

Tofu flavors: plain, lemongrass and mushroom/onion

There was also bbq tofu that appeared to be made of soy curls. They were $8.00/lb

We got a mix of 1lb of tofu for $4.24 which included plain, lemongrass and mushroom onion.

Plain: Nice flavor, tasted like fried tofu

Lemongrass: Nice flavor, quite lemony and had a bit of heat

Mushroom/Onion: Our favorite, we really enjoyed the flavor

Pros: Super cheap tofu $4/lb, BBQ soy curls $8/lb

Cons: Prefer smaller pieces of tofu, Only accepts cash if less than $10

Great-tasting tofu/tofu custard/soy milk.

They have great-tasting fresh and fried tofu, tofu custard (with traditional sweet ginger sauce on the side), and soy milk (and sometimes will serve it warm by the glass, and the pandan variety is a real treat).

Everything tastes very fresh and high quality. Their high turnaround in sales helps assure freshness.

A manager has assured me on at least two occasions that the tofu is not fried in oil shared with meat or fish items.

It would be great if organic -- or at least GMO-free -- soybeans were used . I'd go more often if that were the case.

Pros: Great taste and freshness., Nice people., Great energy.

Cons: Is it organic? , Is it GMO-free?

Superb Tofu!

When I walked into this restaurant, I first noticed that there was a separate line for the Tofu dishes and the bakery/dessert dishes. ] I ordered some onion mushroom tofu, and which were sold by the pound, and they were delicious. The lemongrass tofu was also very tasty, but a bit too salty for my taste. Next time, i'll have to try the desserts consisting of mostly rice and coconut.

Pros: Great tofu

Happy Eats

Best Soy Milk and Tofu

This place is amazing! They make fresh tofu and soy milk daily from raw soybeans. Once I tried the fried tofu (lemongrass pepper was my favorite) I could not stop. They are the only place that I know of that makes soymilk and tofu from scratch.

Pros: great value, Homeade tofu, homemade soy milk

Really good tofu thats about it

They have really great fried and flavored tofu for really really cheap. Their soy milk was not so great and it looked like most everything else they had was not vegan or even vegetarian (aside from the desserts mentioned) plus they didn't really understand what vegetarian was. However the three flavors of tofu I had (mushroom, lemongrass/chili and just plain old fried tofu) were amazing, I ate them in the car and almost couldn't stop. Plus it was so cheap you can get a lot of it and not break the bank.

Pros: great fried tofu, inexpensive

Cons: other stuff not so great or vegetarian, soy milk wasn't great
