Despite what the name might indicate, most of the dishes at Fresh Tofu on North Lamar do not, in fact, contain any tofu. Instead, you can expect to find a small menu of mostly Northern Vietnamese specialties like bún riêu, and bánh cuốn, the latter of which is our favorite thing to get here. Each order consists of a few long sheets of rice noodles that have been tightly rolled around a layer of minced pork and steamed until cooked through. Then they’re served with a bowl of fish sauce for dipping, and a pile of bean sprouts, cucumbers, and herbs to add a bit of freshness to it all. There’s also a handful of ready-to-eat dishes you can grab for later, including dumplings, steamed cakes, and silken tofu.
