Here is my recent favorite, “Koya Katsu” again.
Koya-Katsu is panko-crusted deep-fried Koya-tofu (freeze-dried tofu).
The inspiration was this Maru buns I just baked.
I knew these soft buns would be perfect for sandwiches.
Lots of cabbage and a tomato slice at the bottom.
Crispy Koya Katsu.
Tartar sauce with pickled cauliflower and scallion.
Because of the flavor combination and the look, my husband asked me if I did anything special to make it taste like a fish sandwich.
You can see how small and adorable these are.
