  5. I have never tried tofu and tempeh. Tempeh sounds very interesting, it has a lot of nutrients. Perhaps, some day I would give it a try. I hope it tastes good:)

  6. I will have to say I have never tried it, I have tried tofu and am not really a fan of it so the only way I would probably try this is if someone used it in their cooking.

  10. Wuaaah .. ikut bangga rasanya, tempe makanan traditional dari Indonesia (dulu hanya dikonsumsi warga pelosok pedesaan) sekarang sudah berhasil nangkring di pusat perbelanjaan di Amerika sana ...

    Adanya tempe di benua paman Sam begini, bisa mengobati kangen warga Indo yang tinggal disana, ya ...
    Juga buat warga Amrik yang pernah datang ke Indonesia dan kangen makanan dari kedelai ini.

    Mantul tempenya :)
