tofuya gen-san

There is a small tofu shop on my way to Kamata station...Tofuya Gen-san.

Before going to Hawaii this summer, we tried their oboro tofu.

For 200 yen, this was huge!

At least 2 blocks worth and the texture seemed like firm tofu.

Then after coming back from Hawaii, we tried their yose tofu.

For 170 yen, this was smaller than the oboro, but it was creamy and almost like custard.

They don't always have the yose tofu, so I am glad we got to try this one.

Apparently there is no difference between oboro and yose tofu.

Hope to try their other items like aburaage (fried tofu) and yuba(bean curd skins).

Only in Japan you can find a specialty store like that. Last one I remembered here was this little Japanese lady who had a wooden house right before where Pay N Save/Longs Moilili is now. Dad would bring his little pot, knock on the window and lady would put the tofu in the pot. Gosh that was the late 60s here I think. Was so cute. -N
