I'm a person that's big on red meat, but i have tried tofu once as it was in a Thai soup dish i had, it was mixed with lots of spices and vegetables so i didn't really mind it. I wouldn't go out of my way to eat i, but if I was hungry and someone put it in front of me i would definitely eat it.

I'd try it. Never tasted it and I don't think they sell any of it around here....

I don't like it. It's disgusting.

The only time I like tofu is when it's used in this Chinese dessert... that you eat with a viscous sugary syrup.

the only thing i know about it is from bizarre foods and what they showed is that it sits in a bucket of old old old mix of rotten crap and then deep fried and thats what you eat no way in hell i'll ever try this crap.

Never tried it. I heard it was only good served with other foods. But I know people who eat it raw, so I dunno.

It's an insult to the meat it tries to substitute for.

Tofu isn't a meat substitute, it was a local product in China before Buddhism entered. Then, when the Indian practitioners of Buddhism entered China, the Chinese students, who didn't really have cheese, used Tofu in place of Paneer to try and replicate their Indian teachers native cooking for them.

I grew up eating it too, but basically it's something like a filler ingredient that's used as a carrier for flavor. I always had it pan fried with a spicy chili-garlic sauce.

Think of it like pasta, which is basically just a means of transferring the flavor of the sauce, but with more substance behind it.
Also it's cheap; so flavorful, expensive ingredients like spices, salt, meats, etc can be stretched further.

I've tried it several times and all I have to say no I don't like it one bit.

Tofu on its own tastes like rubber, but when it's flavoured and cooked right it can taste like anything! That being said I don't eat it on a regular basis, but still it can be a nice change of pace from an otherwise meat heavy diet.
