Yes, this is where you get our magical Popcorn Tofu. Yes, you can get it by the pound or in a Po-Boy. And yes, it has its own Facebook page.
Our deli counter is both traditional and uniquely Wheatsville. We will custom make you anything from a sandwich to a No-Ice Smoothie. Every day we make the prepared dishes you can see (and sample!) at the counter. Based on your feedback, we’ve got some favorites in heavy rotation and make everything else based on seasonal availability or because we’ve got a crazy craving.
If you just want to Grab and Go our Hot Bar is the place to pick up breakfast tacos, home-made soups, salads or one of our hot entrees. Between the deli and the hot bar you could eat three meals a day here and never dirty a dish at home.
When I first started working at Wheatsville, about 10 years ago, we were regularly making Southern Fried Tofu (SFT) but really struggled with the demand. In order to make the process more efficient, one of my cook’s came up with a wet batter – this way the battering process was one easy step. What he didn’t know at the time was that he was only creating another great item that people were going to love as much, and eventually more, than SFT. This was the beginning of Wonko’s Popcorn Tofu, rightly named after the cook who created it.
