Chilled Tofu - Hiya Yakko

Hiya Yakko is Japanese chilled tofu dish with variety of topping. Typical type is silken tofu with chopped scallion, grated fresh ginger, with katsuo flake (bonito flake)and a dash of soy sauce. However the choice of tofu and topping vary according the taste.

Popular toppings are
  • Umeboshi (plum paste), 
  • Okura ( ladyfinger), 
  • Tabe Rayu (Chinese chillies and garlic spicy flake)
  • Wasabi
  • Mustard
  • Grated sesame seed
Its best to serve in a summer as appetizer, side dishes, or even as a diet food.  It perfectly matches with tomato salsa or guacamole also. I prefer simple silky tofu with simple topping. Try with your choice of tofu and favorite topping.
