Goma dofu in Tokyo?

rarerollingobject | Nov 12, 2010 03:16 AM

Have been in Japan for 5 days now, eating amazing sushi, okonomiyaki, takoyaki, toro, tonkotsu ramen, curry rice and all sorts of other amazing things throughout Osaka and Tokyo.

But surprisingly (to me, given I'm a confirmed carnivore/anything involving animal fats lover), the dish that I've been most taken by, most delighted by, was the goma dofu I had in a little ramen shop on Mt Koya and then again in the shojin ryori meal at the temple I stayed in.

The utter unctuous creaminess of this 'dofu' (really coagulated ground sesame seeds) is something I've been dreaming about ever since..anyone know where I could find this in Tokyo? Either restaurant or shop. Doesn't matter where, I have nearly a week here and blissful nothing to do other than eat..
