Meat Tofu with Koya-Tofu, how does it taste?Yummmm~! The soft and fluffy koya-tofu soaks up the broth, and the more you chew, the more the rich umami flavor floods your mouth. The sweetness and richness of the fat from the pork belly, the freshness of the crispy onions, and the koya-tofu combine to form a triumvirate of flavors that weave together on the tongue to create bliss itself!
The texture of koya-tofu is more fluffy and fluffy like fried bean curd than regular tofu, making it more satisfying to eat. The dashi (Japanese soup stock) soaks into the tofu and gives it a surprisingly delicious flavor. You can add mushrooms such as enoki and shiitake mushrooms, or vegetables such as carrots to make it more filling to your liking! This is a perfect side dish for white rice that will please both children and adults. Please give it a try!
