Mo and Mo Tofu

Last night I didn't feel much like cooking, so John and I drove two minutes (I know we should have walked, but it was sooooo HOT outside!) to one of our favorite local restaurants, Mo Mong. They serve up Asian fusion cuisine (Thai, Vietnamese, Chinese) in a hip warehouse-style restaurant with rotating funky local artwork. We started off with an order of their vegetable spring rolls, stuffed full of tofu (I prefer more stuffing and less rice noodles), cucumber, carrot, and lettuce. I love smothering these rolls in their yummy peanut sauce.

For dinner I ordered the same dish I always get, it's too good to try anything else!! Tofu luc lac served with brown rice. The texture of the tofu is perfect and I love the garlicky sauce. I have been known to occasionally eat all of the tofu in one sitting, although last night I pryed it out of my chopsticks and saved some for lunch today.




And mo tofu.... Tonight I made one of my favorite easy tofu recipes, Tofu Fish Sticks from VLB. If you try them, don't forget to add a squeeze of lemon, it adds a wonderful zing!!




Ok, I think I've hit overload, no mo tofu for a little while now.....

All of the tofu dishes look soooo good! I do the same thing. If I love a dish at a restaurant, I'll order it every time I go. And those look like yummy dishes!

Sorry I'm just now getting over here! Your pizzas below look great! I thought they were lots of fun to make - and eat! And the flowers are just beautiful.

Those springrolls remind me of the tofu springrolls with peanut sauce I love at Whole Foods. I don't think they have any noodles in them.

You know I could eat tofu in some form every day.

I also love summer rolls and often order them out.
