Iconic Tofu Shop Returned to Chinatown over the Weekend
Two years after Fong Inn Too closed its doors, the family that runs the iconic tofu shop is back. Albeit in a new form and location.
Paul Eng, part of the family that’s run the business since 1933, debuted Fong On over the weekend at 81 Division Street, which is just a few blocks away from the Mott Street original. But it’s familiar territory, as this was apparently the original manufacturing location.
There is a to-go counter to order menu favorites like homemade tofu and soy milk, dau fu fa, and sweet rice cakes.
Fong Inn Too, one of the oldest family-run retail tofu shops in the country, closed back in 2017. A year later, the Eng family had to ward off an imposter in the Mott Street space who claimed a connection to the original.
