Cold Tofu

This is a no-way-it-can-go-wrong quick dish I make frequently because my hamsters love to eat tofu, kekeke. I use only Japanese tofu (I got them from Isetan Shaw House or Meidi-ya in SG) because they are better, tastier & healthier. For some strange reason, although Japanese tofu is firm (it doesn’t break apart when you handle them), the texture when you bite into it is soft & creamy. So I think they are worth the price difference (about 4-6 times?) … and adding testimonials to this, my 2 partners-in-crime hamsters – ever the food critic – seems to prefer Japanese tofu too because they always finish the Japanese tofu but this is not always the case if I feed them local tofu. Talk about having an acute sense of taste, like Remy in Ratatouille (but used for eating and not cooking o_O”)

Next time, I’ll try making agedeshi tofu ;p

  5. Hi! I just come across your website when searching for tofu recipe.
    I agree, I also like Meidi-ya tofu. It’s expensive but very soft and no preservative. Thanks for sharing the recipe! I used to add bunashimeji and boil it in soy sauce + mirin and pour it on top of the tofu. It makes a delicious breakfast.
