Tofu Soft Serve. Indeed!

The day that I discovered that the Tofu Shop had possession of a soft serve machine was truly, truly unsurpassed. Except maybe by the time I absolutely by accident walked into a vegan gelati place in Rome; that was rad too. I only wanted to ask directions but instead I gorged myself! Off topic.

The Tofu Shop does own a soft serve machine in which they make tofu based soft serve, sweetened with fructose....that means its healthy and good for you right? Fruit sugar? Could be consumed daily, right? Yes? Hm. Regardless, this stuff is just wonderful, reminiscent of the days of 30cent cones but less pig fat. Okay no pig fat. And they change the flavour every week! The flavours range from old reliables (such as vanilla malt, pictured above) to the exotic and then some (such as the vivid green coconut-pandan I had the other day).

I also know, through tofu related gossip, that one can request flavours. I also know that they have a rosewater flavour. One day I will combine these two important items of factual knowledge and request rosewater soft serve, until then I will just be shy and eat what they give me.

You can have the soft serve for takeaway or eat there, they have some nice outdoor seats, and that can be a good option as often times it can take a few minutes to rev up the machine. Also you can be regaled by very interesting monologues by a man who works there, and you will not really understand what is going on but you still listen.

The Tofu Shop also has bain marie style eating with revolving dishes of really delicious looking vegetables, and house made tofu-based cakes and slices. I will report back at a later date.

You can choose! That is so cool. I have had rosewater with strawberry (or maybe some other type of berry) and I swear it was the best vegan ice cream ever actually make that the best ice cream ever. The meals are normally good too, but I would skip the cakes/slices if I were you. They are too healthy and well not so tasty.

Wow rosewater strawberry! I never even considered that you can COMBINE FLAVOURS...that creates about a bazillion new possibilities for deliciousness. Their soft serve really is top stuff, but have you tried Soy Delicious brand icecream? You can get it from some more gourmet supermarkets and Macro type stores. It's quite spectacular! Thanks for the heads up re: tofu shop food, I'll take your advice!

Hey, ciao! I live in Italy and I only know one vegan gelateria in bologna, do you remember the name of that gelateria in rome? thanks a lot.

Buttons said...

hi tippitappi! i am sorry i dont remember the name or even where the gelateria was, but it was in a fashionable district running alongside a tram line. I'll do some research and see if anything rings a bell! it was wonderful gelati though...i miss it!

kristy said...

Actually maybe it was raspberry rosewater. I didn't combine it though was just listed as the ice cream of the day.

I have tried Soy Delicious and quite like it but this was nicer. Creamier, maybe its just the soft serve feature and having rosewater flavour anything too!

Ohh, I forgot to warn you that the older guy I think he is the manager anyway he can be quite anti-vegan because we are 'supporting petro-chemical companies' and it is very unhealthy and blah blah stuff that didn't make any sense at all if he hears you are vegan. I just don't mention it or try to engage in any conversation with him. He seems to be the type of person who thinks they are an expert on everything. But judging by your post you may have already got that message. The rest of the staff are fine though and the ice cream is worth it.
