Soy and Tofu Fest makes list of Top Food Festivals in San Francisco!

The Northern California Soy and Tofu Festival recently made SF Tourism Tips’ list of “Nine Top Events for Foodies,” in a list of their top food festivals in San Francisco.

The Soy & Tofu Festival made No. 4 on the list, after Oysterfest, Outside Lands and Taste of Potrero. It listed above Eat Drink SF, SF Street Food Festival, A Taste of Greece, Ghirardelli Chocolate Festival and Pacific Heights Wine & Food Festival.

The site said, “The Northern California Soy and Tofu Festival is a Japantown favorite. This annual event gives you the chance to sample the latest soy and tofu products, and learn more about these healthy ingredients. There is also a tofu eating contest, a dessert competition, and live entertainment by well-known Asian American performers.”

S’more of what?


Today marks the 20th Anniversary of the Sandlot, one of the greatest kids movies of all time. To celebrate, we’re recreating the perfect s’more (as taught by Ham Porter), with one little substitute: vegan marshmallows!tumblr_lyosrfulqa1qmnxe3o1_400 We love Dandies original vanilla vegan mallows — packed with soy protein. Pair with your preferred graham and chocolate, and you’re ready to go! 


Ham Porter: Hey, you want a s’more?

Smalls: Some more of what?

Ham Porter: No, do you want a s’more?

Smalls: I haven’t had anything yet… so how can I have some more of nothing?

Ham PorterYou’re killing me, Smalls!

“Alright now pay attention.”


  1. “ First you take the graham, you stick the chocolate on the graham.”
  2. “Then you roast the ‘mallow. When the ‘mallows flaming… you stick it on the chocolate.”
  3. “Then cover with the other end.”
  4. “Then you scarf. Kind of messy, but good!”
