This is a very simple tofu fish, but very flavourful with added the scallops.
I can easily get this fresh and soft tofu from the wet market which the owner of this tofu stall sell their fresh tofu daily. The size of this tofu is double the size of silken tofu that you normally get from the supermarket.
