Vinh Loi Tofu

There's a lot of Asian vegan food in Los Angeles.  But, Vinh Loi Tofu is unique -- the tofu and mock meats are made fresh on the premises every day.  In addition, owner Kevin Tran is a runner, training to run the LA Marathon next month, and will be doing his first triathlon later this year at Malibu.

Here are some of my favorite dishes:

Ham Spring Rolls -- my sister-in-law says they actually taste like ham.  I don't know about that because I've never eaten ham in my life, but they are delicious.

Curry Udon with Chicken

House Soup -- big enough for a small meal by itself, or great to share:
Tucked away in a strip mall in Reseda, you'd never expect to find a place like this -- but, as it's become well known, there's always a crowd.

Kevin provided a link to your blog on facebook. I also love Vin Loi Tofu. I have been a vegetarian all my life, so it is not as if I miss the meat, but his tofu and veg. meats are such a treat. I found the place by accident one day when I was in the area. It has become my favorite restaurant. I live in Santa Barbara, so I can't make it there very often.

It is really neat that you are physician that promotes vegan eating. If people would only give it a try, I think they would come to really appreciate the amazing variety and tastes there are in vegan cooking.
