I was very fortunate for 21 years, to work right next door to a wonderful Japanese department store who had an entire floor dedicated to food!! Not a day went by that you did not see customers with our employee name tags still on their chest shopping for their favorite lunches.

I first tasted this at one of their counters that specialized in Korean foods. I was intrigued, having never seen tofu prepared like this, but am glad that I tried Korean Pupu Tofu with Soy dipping sauce.
