Tofu Nuggets with Tofu French Fries at Vinh Loi Tofu

We have for our random meal of the day an order of Tofu Nuggets with a side of Tofu French Fries. This random meal was actually recommended to me by my close friend. He told me I had to try some tofu chicken nuggets in The Valley and that it was awesome. I gave him a look and said tofu chicken nuggets and laughed. Well, I finally had this random meal. This was actually completely different that what I had expected. The tofu nuggets are actually battered like real chicken nuggets and the most surprising thing for me was the texture of the tofu inside. It was spot on for a chicken nugget in terms of taste and texture. If someone were to give me a nugget and did not say anything, I would have not noticed. The tofu french fries had more of the typical tofu flavor and was crispy. I picked it up and ate it like a french fry. I never would have thought you could do this with tofu. I was pleasantly surprised by this random meal of the day.

Found at Vinh Loi Tofu in Reseda, California.

Island Style Fried Chicken at The Loft

We have an order of the Island Style Fried Chicken for our random meal of the day. This is actually my favorite version of Hawaiian style fried chicken so far. The batter and the flavor of the chicken stands out without the need for sauce. It comes down to the sweet ginger sauce that the chicken was marinated in. We complete our random meal with two scoops of rice, a scoop of ramen cabbage salad and a scoop of macaroni salad. I look forward to another random meal here.

Found at The Loft in Cerritos, California.
