Lotus Food Co ~ Strip District ~ Pittsburgh Pennsylvania

If you are looking for Asian (Chinese) food, this is a great place to shop.   I make sure I go there every time I go to the Strip District.

When they bring out their Tofu, it is still warm  and Cheap!!   I think I only paid maybe 30 cents a square.  That is a very good price.

 
I am not sure what these are but they sure look gross.
 
They have a large selection of fresh fruits and vegetables besides all the rice and other grains they sell.
 
My problem is... most of the packaging is written in Chinese and I have no clue what a lot of it is.

  2. Haha - they DO look gross! We have China Town in Boston and many of my friends shop there, but since the majority of my family won't eat those sorts of foods, I hardly ever buy food there. That is an awesome price for the tofu!!

    1. The Tofu is a GREAT price. Plus, it comes out of the oven warm and you box it up and take it home fresh.

    1. I like it because it takes on the flavor of what ever you want it to. My sister makes cheesecake out of it. I need to get her recipe.

  5. Hi There, Thanks so much for visiting my blog. Hubby and I are retired and we do love to travel. However, we are more into nature/hiking/searching waterfalls, etc. --so we try to go where there aren't too many people and where we can enjoy nature.

    I looked through your list of places where you have visited. NOW--you need to come to the Smoky Mountains (Gatlinburg, Cherokee, etc.).... --so I want you to know that there's a big hotel/area on the North Carolina side of the Smokies in Cherokee. That will be a wonderful trip for you I'll bet!!!!!

    Please come back to my blog... I will return to yours. Thanks again for visiting.

  7. Those gross things look like sharks. Poor things, they have so much more to worry about from humans than we do from them.

  9. I like fresh tofu and the price sounds really good. Too bad its all written in Chineese. I went shopping at a big Chineese grocery store in Chicago once. I was looking for some spices. Everything was labled in Chinese and not one employee could help transilate. They had no clue what the english names were for the spices they sold.

  10. Now I know where to get chinese food if I ever visit this place in USA. The gross things look like an assortment of sea creatures - could be a shark and some eels and some fish in the ice box next to them.

  11. That's too bad the instructions aren't in English. After all we live in the US.

  12. Seems like a good place. I have been to Pittsburg once where I was visiting a friend. But will let my friend know in case he's interested.
