Vinh Loi Tofu
San Fernando Valley

Fresh tofu is worlds away from the processed, packaged variety from your local supermarket cold case. Fill up on the fresh stuff—from soymilk to silky tofu pudding served with sweet ginger syrup, each batch is made on-site with non-GMO soybeans—at this always-packed little café in the San Fernando Valley. Vinh Loi hits all of the high notes of Vietnamese cuisine, serving up pho and bun that are spicy, savory, sweet and sour in equal measure. A surprising number of patrons bypass the extensive menu and opt for dealer’s choice-type ordering: Go up to the counter and tell them what you like and don’t like, and they’ll surprise you with a platter of something delicious.
