  Years later... our somewhat anticipated E-Tofu mail order system is coming soon! I've been looking for alternatives to styrofoam as shipping insulation and finally found a biodegradable alternative. Please email us if you're still interested.

Central Market Central Market customers! There's more to us than just great egg rolls! We've been making tofu tamales (featured in the Houston Chronicle in Nov. '08), tofu fried rice, spicy tofu stew, tofu lo mein, and sweet sour fried tofu for a while now. They've been in the Whole Foods Markets in Houston, Austin, and one in Dallas. If you wish to purchase them in any Central Market, please email them!

Austin 7/29/05 - funny how those words ring true today*

 
For my Austin friends,

I wanted to apologize for the lack of tofu egg rolls and tofu tamales in the Austin flagship store. I spent a lot of time demoing that store and got to personally know many of you. It definitely wasn't my choice, since our products have been in the store since the grand opening, but I've been informed by that store that we've been pulled from the shelves. This is certainly a shock to me, since December is tamale season and we were the only non-frozen vegan tamales sold in the store. Individual stores have sales expectations that they expect to meet/exceed during the holidays, so it's not my place to say whether or not we should be there. However, if you are inconvenienced by their decision, feel free to contact Luis Reyna, the new dairy manager there. Please be civil and polite, hehe. Bottom line, if you want us back in Austin, ask for us and we'll be there. If the worst case scenario occurs, email me, and I'll find a new place for you to buy your egg rolls/tamales in Austin... we ain't done there yet by far.

Meanwhile, the Houston Whole Foods stores on Kirby/Bellaire/Wilcrest have definitely lived up to their credo of supporting local businesses. They currently carry our vegan egg rolls and tamales, and will be debuting our tofu fried rice very soon.

Love ya guys/gals. keep on keeping it weird,

gary

*and even funnier (for me, not for Mario, hehe) that Mario was nearly handcuffed in store for that "creative advertising" I threw together. He'll never let me live it down, hehe.

Whole Foods You lucky Austin bastards. Whole Foods is opening its 80,000 sq ft. flagship store on March 3! I'm only a little envious… ok, a lot. Come visit our demo in the World Foods Section on March 4, 5, & 6 where we will spin old classics like our vegan Tofu Egg Rolls (original, curry, and hot chipotle), and debut our new release, vegan Tofu Tamales (mild and hot). Also available will be our ready-to-eat vegan meals - Tofu Spaghetti, Tofu Fried Rice, and Spicy Tofu Stew.

entrees In case our tofu egg rolls aren't enough for you, my mother has created some convenient, microwaveable tofu entrees. Our newest vegetarian and vegan products are Tofu Spaghetti (soy/wheat pasta w/ a tofu marinara sauce), Spicy Tofu Stew (w/ brown rice), and Tofu Fried Rice (brown rice w/ stir fried tofu and vegetables).

See Tofu Entrees for complete nutrition information and ingredients. These entrees are not yet available in stores, but in the meantime, you can order directly from us.
