Corner of Chrystie and Grand Street (D/B Subway Stop)

If you want to get your hands on the freshest Tofu, head down to Chinatown and find one of the many street vendors. One of our favorites is the Tofu Lady on the corner of Christie and Grand Street – Just outside of the b/d subway stop. She serves both regular soft tofu in slices for $1.50 and candy tofu for $1.

The sweet tofu ( Tofu hua) is scooped out of a fresh pot of soft tofu and includes the candy ginger sauce. All you need to do is pour the candy ginger sauce over the soft tofu, stir and enjoy. It’s good both cold and warm

    Nice, nice stuffs……..It’s call “to-fu hua” in Chinese, right? Using ginger syrup is more like a Chinese/ Taiwanese style or something. In Southeast Asia, we eat it with sugar/ brown sugar syrup.
