I first saw this dish at Cilantro restaurant years ago. They named it tahu nenek moyang. It was delicious and quite pricey. Since then I began looking for this kind of dish whenever we went to Chinese restaurants. There are many variations for the name, some restaurants even called this dish ‘XXX restaurant tofu special’. One day, when I dined with SC parents, I asked her mother about the recipe and I promised myself that I’m going to make it some day.
This is supposed to be my weekend project, but I was too lazy to cook last (long) weekend. As I was afraid that the ingredients might gone bad, I tried to make it this morning before going for work. Turned out, it required about 45 minutes to cook. As I ‘m running very late for work, I left all the dirty dishes to SC. I hope he finds the taste well worth the effort
