Usually in Italy when someone eats tofu people around him would look sorry and ask: “are you on a diet?”. Somehow tofu=tasteless experience.
I cannot deny that I was also part of that idea but since in Japan I have to say that tofu is good. No, I am not on a diet, tofu is good. Unfortunately what is exported is usually not that good. If you come to japan I recommend to try a supercool and oishii brand: otokomae.
