Tokwa at Baboy

Tokwang Baboy is a popular snack that hits the spot on those afternoons when you’re looking for something meaty. This dish also comes next in the line of “pulutan”, after sizzling sisig. Filipinos love this so much that we have several versions of this dish. The famous ones either used boiled pork or fried pork but both use fried tofu. Cooking Tip: To achieve the right crisp and golden brown color of the meat, make sure to use Golden Fiesta Palm oil.
