Thanh Son Tofu Review

Thanh Son Tofu is always packed on the weekends
Thanh Son Tofu at the Eden Center in Falls Church, VA is a great little hole in the wall with just a couple of small tables that serves all kinds of tofu products, tapioca drinks, puddings, and other rice/soy/tofu-based desserts. However, the only thing I ever get there is the fried tofu to go. Their fried tofu is an excellent bargain, and is delicious as well. For just $1, you can get 7 pieces of plain fried tofu, 5 pieces of mushroom and onion, or 3 pieces of lemongrass and chili fried tofu. The plain tofu is a little too plain, so I stick with the mushroom and lemongrass tofu. The mushroom tofu has a nice fried exterior with savory mushroom and onion bits interspersed in the tofu. The lemongrass tofu has a nice citrus and onion flavor and has chili in it but is not spicy. The fried tofu is a perfect accompaniment to a bánh mì sandwich that you can pick up in the many cafes at the Eden Center.
