Tofu chips: must try

We were having a late al fresco lunch at Rowena’s in Tagaytay a couple of months ago and the sandwiches we ordered came with chips that were delicious as they were unfamiliar. Even Sam who can deconstruct a dish down to the infinitesimal bits of herb couldn’t determine what they were made of. Not potatoes, definitely, or we would have known right away. Not cassava either as cassava chips are chewy as they are crisp. The puzzle notwithstanding, we just went on and devoured the chips. Hours later, we would discover what they were at a Retreat House, no less.

After lunch, we were driving back to the house where we stayed when we passed the Canossa Retreat House with a sign out front that said “Bazaar.” We went, the bazaar wasn’t so very interesting (the handmade coffee mugs were very expensive) but we did discover the chips that we enjoyed at Rowena’s. Tofu chips, it turned out, and they came in a variety of flavors. According to the store minder, they came from Laguna. Where exactly in Laguna, she was not sure. I bought three bags of tofu chips, in different flavors, and brought them home. Delicious. Truly delicious.

Even if you’re not a fan of tofu, chances are, you’ll find these tofu chips irresistible.

    I found these in Eastwood Mall bazaar last weekend near Starbucks. Yummy nga! I asked the girl where we could find her after Eastwood (since no contact number in the packaging) and she said they’re “always” there (?)

    Along the Highway. Medyo malapit sa church but on the opposite side of the road.
