Tofu secuwa & other delectables

I just want to use this opportunity to celebrate my favorite Madison meal, Chautara’s tofu secuwa. On a recent lovely spring workday, we walked down State, sat outside and took part in total yumsville. Unfortunately, I took some of the pics after partaking in the culinary delights so they don’t really do justice to the beauty on the plate.

The piece de resistance, the tofu secuwa, which is grilled tofu and green peppers and onions on skewers, served with an amazingly tasty tamarind sauce, spinach ride and a green bean mixture (it looks way prettier when I haven't eaten half of it before photographing it)

    That looks and sounds so delicious!!! I wish I could eat that right now instead of my usual eggs and coffee.

    That meal DOES look wonderful!
    I had a buffalo fried tofu dish this past weekend and it did not do the tofu justice.
    I guess I realized I just don’t like buffalo fried stuff. I actually had some fried mushrooms too (different day) at a Tapas place which I really like, however it occurred to me this visit that all of their vegetables are totally deep fried which is pretty annoying. Sometimes it’s just too much….

    I think it totally depends on how they fry it. Because there is definitely a way to make it tasty and light (though obviously not the beacon of health) and just a way that it’s a big wad of fry. I’m sure it depends on the oil, the coating, what you’re frying, etc. It’s kinda weird, I think, that a tapas place would have only fried veggies. Seems a bit limited. There’s this place in town that has fried spinach. I love spinach and I love fried, and while I don’t hate this dish, it’s definitely not that tasty.

    I don’t think I like buffalo stuff either.

    I think even I might like this, although there are lots of vegetables.

    True, but the sauces are really outstanding. And you know how scared I can get by sauces. I will take you and you can get something maybe safer and you will try mine and then I will get up to go to the bathroom and you will have put all of my tofu secuwa into your handbag and we will have a good laugh. Hooray!

    Holding you to it. It’s in writing on the blog. Better than gospel.

    It sounds delicious right now– or lamb curry sans peas… 🙂
