A note about serious food allergies
Crispy and fresh come together here for pure yumminess and delight. You'll crisp the tofu to "crunch on the outside, soft on the inside" perfection, and give them a twist of teriyaki. The fresh comes from pickled cucumber. "Those are pickles," you say. Au contraire! These are a crispy, plucky, additional delight.
