Thanh Son Tofu, 6793/A Wilson Blvd., Eden Center, Falls Church, VA, 703-534-1202 (Metro Trip Planner – opens in new window) [eGullet]
They serve one main dish, tofu. That’s right, just slabs of tofu, done three main ways. Five for a dollar. The best tofu around, period. Tofu to die for. Tofu. Wonderful tofu. The Vietnamese love this place. By the way, you’d better be in the mood for tofu.

The mushroom and scallion tofu is my favorite. Can’t beat the price.
Don’t forget to leave with some of their warm, lightly sweetened, fresh soy milk. Beats the heck out of what you can get in the regular grocery stores!
It’s not just about tofu. I highly recommend the bubble smoothie drinks here. Whenever I’m in Eden Center, I end with a mango bubble smoothie from Thanh Son Tofu.
