Hodo Soy Beanery opened a kiosk in San Francisco's Ferry Building last week, bringing a number of items it will exclusively carry there. One such category: Hodo's excellent soy milks (original, chocolate, and Thai tea) and smoothies (strawberry banana and kale avocado). The difference between them is that the smoothies are enriched with Hodo's silken tofu for a thicker product.
We sampled all but the kale avocado, since we're trying to work up to the idea of a savory smoothie and haven't quite gotten there yet. The winner in our book? Hodo's Thai tea soymilk, which has none of the cloying sweetness of a typical Thai iced tea and allows the flavor of the tea to really shine through. Though these all have a short shelf life, we hope to see them stocked at other spots around town soon.
