Yu do-fu is one of Kyoto’s popular winter dishes. The main ingredient is tofu, which is made by coagulating soy milk and pressing the resulting curd into blocks. The tofu is cut into small cubes and simmered in a large ceramic pot at the table over a low heat. The boiled tofu is then ready to eat and is usually dipped in a sauce (be careful not to burn your tongue!). Yu do-fu is not only delicious but low in calories and fat. There are many yu do-fu eateries around Nanzen-ji serving ‘Nanzenji Dofu’; try it in the winter!
