  • 2 whole eggs
  • 300 grams firm tofu
  • salt
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons cooking oil
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon plain mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon rice wine vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon chili flakes


  • Boil the eggs until firm, about 10 minutes.
  • While the eggs cook, prepare the tofu.
  • Cut the tofu into squares at least three-quarters of an inch thick. Place the cut tofu between stacks of paper towels and press lightly to remove excess water. Sprinkle the tofu with salt.
  • Heat the cooking oil in a frying pan and fry the tofu squares on both sides until browned and crisp. Set aside.
  • When the eggs are done, make the tartar sauce. Discard the egg shells. Mash the eggs. Mix with mayonnaise, mustard, rice wine vinegar, salt and chili flakes.
  • Arrange two to three tofu steaks on a plate and spoon the tartar sauce beside it.
  • Serve the tofu steaks with tartar sauce immediately.
