Fabulous Tofu Dish At Golden Dragon (Chinatown)

Chandavkl | Jun 12, 200601:21 PM

Well it's been a long time (probably the early 1980s) since we've been able to utter "Golden Dragon" and "good food" in the same sentence. And while the restaurant haas been on the upswing the past couple years I'm not sure I could recommend this as a destination eatery. But thanks to a recent banquet I've discovered the best tofu dish I can recall eating at a Chinese restaurant in the Los Angeles area. I believe it's called fried tofu in special sauce and consists of round silver dollar sized slices of fried tofu, not fried so deeply as to be crispy and very soft on the inside, with a combination of mushrooms and vegetables in a savory light (tapioca?) gravy. There's a taste in the gravy that I cannot identify that is terrific. If any of you try this dish I would appreciate your take on what this flavor might be.
