Soy Bean Chen Flower Shop

Tofu in Queens

To find this easy-to-miss place on busy Roosevelt Ave look for the flower displays – the main order of business here. For foodies though, the tiny tofu counter at the front is the real draw. Silk, heavenly morsels of tofu are spooned up steaming hot in to-go containers, then drizzled with ginger syrup.

If you think tofu is bland and uninspiring, this place is a game changer.
