Yuanyang Grilled Tofu – Yunnan, China

Yuanyang Grilled Tofu - Yunnan, China
© June 10 2008, Uncornered Market

Freshly grilled tofu accompanied by a spicy dipping sauce makes for a perfect light lunch or afternoon snack.

As a means of keeping count of tofu bites consumed, the woman running the grill places a corn kernel on the table for each piece that a customer removes from the grill. At the end of lunch, just count the corn kernels and pay up.

Taken in the town of Xinjie in the Yuanyang region of China’s Yunnan province.
