I just had lunch at my local Thai restaurant a few minutes ago, and I had Pahd Chashew & Vegetables, which includes a choice of Chicken, Beef, Pork or Tofu. I had the Tofu just for something different, and it was OUTSTANDING! It appeared to be lightly grilled, making it firm on the outside but still tender on the inside, and was mixed in with the grilled vegetables and sauce. Without knowing exactly how they cooked it, I would say that it served very well as a meat substitute in taste and even a little in external texture.
Never trust a skinny chef!
