Most foodies know that when they’re in a time
crunch and looking for a delicious, economical meal, Vietnamese
way to go. And Buford
is littered full of these establishments that are
second-to-none when it comes to fresh to order, fast, and
budget-conscious. Viet Tofu takes this concept to the next
level by providing you everything you could possibly need to transform
your kitchen to your own personal Vietnamese restaurant.
Viet Tofu Fast Food and Supply Store Outside
Many Vietnamese stop by this local Chamblee Tucker mart to
stock up on ready-to-made meals or supply their cooking. The
prices are about half the cost of what you would normally spend on the
exact same dish in these local eateries. Made fresh daily in
the morning, you just can’t afford to miss this hidden
treasure of a shopping mart!
Viet Tofu Fast Food and Supply Store Entrance
Along the main shelf upon entry, there are prepackaged
dishes that include rice dishes such as barbecue marinated half-chicken
or barbecue pork. And of course, there are the infamous
appetizers such as those basil rolls with a variety of choice meats
such as boiled shrimp or barbecue pork wrapped in rice paper to dip in
that addictive peanut butter sauce we all know and love. The
only thing missing is the hot pho noodle bowls that has basically
obtained the mascot position for these Vietnamese restaurants.

Whereas most groceries utilize plastic bags to bag your
produce, Viet Tofu utilizes bags for you to grab your hot side dishes
such as fried tofu filled with seasoned minced pork. They
keep these tasty delights nice and hot for you, so don’t be
surprised if you don’t even make it to your car without
finishing a skewered meatball or egg roll.
Viet Tofu Prepackaged Entrees
But most people stop by for those Vietnamese sandwich
cravings that often hit us. Most often, they have the deal of
buy 4 sandwiches, you get the 5th free. You can always get
them each for $2.50, but these sandwiches do keep very well throughout
the week. If you’re thinking of trying something
new, stray away from the barbecue pork that all we beginners to
Vietnamese cuisine fall into. Try the Vietnamese Ham instead,
which has this remarkable texture similar to salami and spam.
It has this creaminess about it that helps the special
Vietnamese mayonnaise to equally balance out the crunch from the crust
of the French bread, and the juicy pickled vegetables within.

And if you want to really try something interesting.
Head to the 3 for $1 French bread bin and concoct your own
creation with this Vietnamese carbohydrate that is a close cousin of
sourdough bread. They also have all the meats such as
Vietnamese ham nicely packaged if you prefer to slice it up yourself.
Also, they carry packaged ingredients such as the juicy
pickled carrots and radishes for you to invent your own mad creation of
the perfect Vietnamese sub.
Viet Tofu Prepackaged Entrees
In the back corner are all the specialty drinks that you
can’t normally find easily such as young coconut juice and
the brand of Aloe Vera King, which has numerous health benefits.
If you’ve never tried this specific type of
beverage, ditch the overpriced fruit shakes and give this refreshing
drink a try. It has this gelatin quality about it infused
with a primary fruit such as the subtle Asian white
cranberry—Lychee to the tropical properties of Mango.
Viet Tofu Sandwiches
The dessert area has a wide array of refrigerated treats
such as tapioca, three bean delights, and wonderful combinations of
fruits with coconut milk. Hot desserts include fried
plantains and the aisles also hold authentic Vietnamese treats from
sweet and soft rice cakes to golden sesame rice balls.
