Tofu in Japan can be a reservation, a far cry from the bland blocks commonly found commonly found elsewhere.

Abura-age (油揚げ) : Pieces of tofu from which excess water has been pressed, and then deep-fried

Agedashi dofu (揚げ出し豆腐) : Tofu that is rolled in a starch (katakuriko0 deep-fried, and covered in a savory soy and dashi sauce
