Stuffed Tofu and Eggplant / to ( Flower ) Market , to Market !


I've posted about it several months ago but it's worth posting it the second time around .....

It's simple and easy to prepare , delicious and most of all it's cheap !

It's a ubiquitous Hongkong street  food but I prefer eating it with rice .

I've forgotten how to call it in Cantonese - my 3 translator are MIA ^-^'' , maybe it's also called yong tau fu , I googled it and that is what Google spewed out ! lol

Mine's more like topping though as I just spread the minced fish evenly on the top of  tofu and eggplant and pan-fried it .

If you can't find minced ( dace ) fish , you can use minced pork or shrimp or a combination .



Went to Flower Market few days ago , it's just few walks away er more like at the end of our building pfffttt

Ah !!!! Basil ! If only I don't have a black thumb ! tsk tsk 







Hungry ?! Don't worry ! There are some bakeries/resto around ! lol

Poor chicken ! Mmmmmmmmm !

  14. Yong tau foo, definitely one of our favourite! Good with rice, in soups, with noddles or just eat it with some chilli sauce! Looks delicious! I love steamed chicken!

  17. What a lovely post. I enjoy having YTF cause it isn't too heavy to have it during lunch or dinner. Btw, yours looks really tempting.
    Hope you're having a lovely day.
