You think you know what tofu is…and then you go to Japan.
It’s so different! If you can get your hands on high quality tofu, it has such a rich flavour and they use it in so many extraordinarily creative ways. I was lucky enough to be taken for a full course tofu lunch, complete with a soy milk hot pot for cooking up your veggies right there at the table.
All this was served to us in our own private house in the middle of a beautiful traditional Japanese garden. A lot of nicer restaurants in Japan will commonly give you your own individual room or even a separate house so that you can relax undisturbed with your friends and family. Amazing ❤
