Tofu battered Fish

Back in the 80s our family visits to New York City were invariably puncuated by a trip to the same exceedingly good restaurant in Chinatown the name and address of which I have long forgotten. Two things, however, have stuck in my mind. The first was that the owner/manager invariably wore a pocket protector that said, "we use purolator chemicals." The second was a dish we ordered again and again, which was fish, I think filleted -- but it has been a long time, battered in tofu served with sea salt. I have never again seen it on a menu, at least not in a language I could understand, and I would dearly like to have it again. While I would certainly not object to being reacquainted with that restaurant if someone recognizes it, provided it is still worth the trip, I would be as grateful, if not more so, for information about the availability of this dish in Flushing.

Best regards,
Hugo
