  • About

Koyadofu is dried frozen tofu which was discovered when tofu was found frozen under extreme cold on Mount Koya. When reconstituted with water, it has a spongy texture that absorbs flavour beautifully. It is a highly nutritious ingredient commonly used in Japanese cooking. This simple yet elegant dish has a crispy coating accented with shiso leaves and a spongy interior.
