We treat tofu as something of a dirty word at Clover. We’re afraid many Americans are scared of tofu, we don’t want to scare our customers, so we just avoid tofu.
There is one sandwich we make that flirts with that self-imposed restriction. The Sweet Potato sandwich we’re serving right now has a soy spread that is tofu blended with cilantro and some seasoning.
Chris and Rolando have been working on sourcing. They found this Tofu manufacturer right down the street from us. See that address? That’s Cambridge. Tofu manufactured in Cambridge.
One of the really exciting things about our focus on locally sourced ingredients is surprises like this. It’s awesome to make this sort of discovery. Why was I ever buying tofu from 2000 miles away?
