Deep-fried Crispy Tofu with Seaweed Salad
The deep-fried crispy tofu with seaweed salad is a personal favorite, which marries the softness of the tofu, the freshness of the vegetables, and the crunch of deep-fried taro in one amazing dish.

Deep-fried Bean Curd Leek Rool with XO Sauce
A beautiful take on the usual beancurd dim sum is the deep-fried beancurd leek rolls with XO sauce. Although deep-fried, this delicacy, if perfectly executed, is not oily to the bite, and is a great wake-up for the palate because of the chili sauce.
