I don’t know why it’s called “Prince Tofu”, royalty or not it’s definitely unique!
Most dishes involving fried tofu, are made with the extra firm tofu variety. It is my professional opinion that this dish was made with silky tofu instead. Silky tofu has a higher water content, causing it to be almost like a Spanish croquette to burst in your mouth when biting it…
Although delicious in texture and flavor, if not handled properly, very dangerous unlike the croquettes.
Molten Lava would best describe it!
I found through trial and error to poke the fritters first to let some steam out and then bite them. (my burned palate is proof of my labor)
As to the rest of the dish, the combination of vegetables were ideal to highlight the main event. Well cooked and sauced, but just enough not to overpower.
I loved the contrast of the spongy mushroom and the crunchy snap peas.
FYI: this place is so legit, it feels like you’re going through a portal when you walk in. As I sat in the restaurant, it felt like I wasn’t in Orlando anymore.
