The minute the
kimono-clad waitress
gently stepped into
Tosuiro's simple
Japanese style din-
ing room we knew we
were in for some-
thing different.
"Tonight you will be
eating tofu." She
announced. "Boiled
tofu, fried tofu,
baked tofu, chilled
tofu, tofu in water,
tofu with rice, tofu
with vegetables, and
tofu with fish. You
will have tofu for
an appetizer, you
will have tofu in
the salad, you will
have tofu in the
main course, you
will have tofu as
desert, and you will
even have tofu in
your cocktails. You
are in a tofu res-
taurant, if you need
anything else,
please feel free to
ask, but I'll prob-
ably just bring you
more tofu instead.
Thank you."

The tofu came in a
steady stream, just
as the waitress
promised. They
brought boiled tofu,
baked tofu, fried
tofu, in combination
with fish, vegeta-
bles, and even solid
gold flakes! All of
it was so much bet-
ter than any tofu I
had ever had before
and each tofu varied
in creaminess, tex-
ture, and flavor.
Some of the bolder
members of our party
tried the tofu cock-
tail, which, as you
may have cleverly
predicted, tasted
like soymilk and
shochu. None of the
featured menu items
measured up, howev-
er, to the never-
ending supply of
pure goodness that
boiled away in the
oborodofu pot in the
center of the table.
The flavor was so
bold and creamy yet
the tofu itself was
as light as air.

Fortunately the
waitress was happy
to bring in extra
servings, because
the wonderful flavor
kept us all coming
back for more, I
lost count after I
slurped back my
seventh serving! The
final blow was a
small dish of tofu
sorbet, which was
somehow lighter than
ice cream but just
as creamy, the last
nail in the tofu
coffin. I, who had
thought that a tofu
'dinner' was actual-
ly just a healthy
appetizer prelude to
a meal at McDo-
nald's, had unbe-
lievably stuffed
myself purely on
tofu!
