For those who want to bulk up their meals without adding meat or fish, tofu can be a great substitute. An ingredient also known as bean curd made out of soy milk, it is rich in amino acids, calcium and other vitamins. This makes tofu a nutrient packed dish to have at anytime during the day. Also, its delicate silky texture makes it a fine accompaniment to many of our braised casseroles and hot pots.
Tofu and aubergine go hand in hand and makes one of our most delicious Chef’s specials – Pan fried tofu with sweet peppers, aubergines and black bean sauce. With juicy cubes of sweet peppers to give robust flavour to the tofu and sauce, this is a winning combination. And if you prefer a twist of seafood, try the Tofu with sweet peppers, aubergines stuffed with shrimp. This may seem like a lot, but it’s one of the lightest and most fulfilling dishes on our menu. Pair it with tea for an afternoon snack or red wine for dinner.
You will also find a few more tofu dishes on our menu to enjoy. They are Braised tofu with Chinese mushrooms and bamboo shoots. Another option is the Braised tofu with minced pork in a spicy sauce, a popular with our regulars.
