1.Stuffed Tofu

A famous dish of the Kakka cuisine, rich in nutrients, tender and smooth with mouthwatering aroma. It’s a must have dish during the holidays.

The legend of Kakka stuffed tofu:
Legend has it that the stuffed tofu originated from the dumplings in the north. Because the Lingnan region produces less wheat, the Kakka settlers replaced the flour with tofu and stuffed it with meat. Because of its delicious taste, it has become a signature of Kakka cuisine.

There is another legend: A long time ago, there were two good brothers who could not decide on what to order. One wanted to eat pork and another wanted Tofu. Thinking on his feet, the chef came up with a way to make the best of both worlds, producing the stuffed tofu.
