I’m personally not a big fan of tofu or tempeh, but many vegans and vegetarians (herbivores and carnivores too!) can’t live without these protein-packed “meat substitutes”.
Never heard of them? Here’s a brief rundown of tofu vs. tempeh:
Now that you know what these two “t” foods are, here are two places in Amman where you can find them:
Toko Murad is an Indonesian shop in the souq in downtown Amman. They sell both tempeh and tofu.
Address: Souq, Downtown Amman.
For the exact location, you can call them on the number in the picture above, but here’s an idea of where to find them:
There’s a Chinese shop in Gardens that operates every Friday. Here you can find fresh tofu, in addition to lots of fresh Asian green vegetables and other Chinese products.
Address: 5th floor on Mohammad Mujhem Msallat Al Fayez Complex, Wasfi Al Tal Street No 122 (look for Jabri in Gardens .. Build No 112 should be 2-3 blocks up). The prominent lower ground shops are Kenz Rent a Car. A liquor shop. A barber at the corner.
Know any other places in Amman that carry tofu or tempeh? Comment below and let me know so I can add them to the list 🙂
