Tofu?

I cannot understand the reasoning behind making tofu look like meat. I like tofu and I like it in it's natural state. when I ordered this noodles with tofu at one of the local Vietnamese restaurants this is not what I was expecting.
Tofu?

Actually the noodles are rice noodles. The brown stuff is the tofu. I have never tried tofu noodles, but it sounds good.

Was it tofu? It looks like seitan to me.

It may have been seitan. It had a slight meat texture, but the menu said tofu. I guess that if they had put "seitan" or "mock-beef" in the menu I would not have ordered it.

Mmmm ... TOFU ...
Tofu generally has a pretty neutral taste by itself, so it's often flavored or processed in some way. What did this stuff taste like?

Re: Mmmm ... TOFU ...
It was OK. But I would not go out of my way to find it again.

Have you heard about Tofu Shirataki? It is a low-carb pasta alternative. It comes in the shape of spaghetti, fettuccine, and angel-hair.

Wow, that looks good. I will have to keep an eye out for that. I would love to try the angle-hair.
