Leaning Tower of Tofu

Panfried Tofu in a potato thickened Soybean Sauce
Chef Hyejin's newest creation. It is two big blocks tofu that are shallow fried in oil until the outside is crispy. The sauce is a soybean sauce (tengjang or dwengjang) that has been thickened with shaved slivers of potato and flavoried with potato, mushrooms, soy sauce, sugar, and chili peppers. The sauce was a harmony of flavors and textures and went well with the tofu.
