Is it really countable? Sounds strange to me. Tooironic 01:10, 24 October 2009 (UTC)

It can be countable when it means something like "order of tofu". For instance, if two people in a restaurant order tofu, the waiter will bring two tofus (two orders, two dishes). It’s the same as waters, beers, caviars, etc. —Stephen 15:07, 24 October 2009 (UTC)
As best as I can tell, it is NOT countable. You are making two orders of tofu, not two tofus. You need the measure word. 14:08, 6 March 2010 (UTC)
But it is used with the -s, and we need to document that. Proof: [1] Equinox 22:41, 27 March 2016 (UTC)


Properly speaking, the word "tofu" shouldn't be used to refer to unknown or unrecognized characters. Instead, use the word "geta", derived from Japanese "geta kigo" (aka U+3013). Dmacgr 22 (talk) 22:40, 27 March 2016 (UTC)

French tofouEdit

Apparently tofou is an alternative spelling of French tofu. Wikipedia suggests it may be a Quebec thing. Equinox 18:55, 4 April 2016 (UTC)
