One of my very favorite places to dine out in Kansas City is Blue Koi. Described as a noodle and dumpling shop, they offer flavorful food, an extensive gluten-free selection and an inviting atmosphere at both locations.
Every time I drive by, I think about dropping in just to get their Crispy Tofu and Awesome Sauce. On more than a few occasions, I’ve made that my entire meal. Perfectly crispy nuggets of tofu dipped into Awesome Sauce makes my day.
So about that Awesome Sauce…I really have no idea what exactly Blue Koi puts in theirs. I’ve tried many times to make it at home. The version I’m sharing here is the closest I’ve come to making something that closely resembles the real thing, therefore I’m calling it Awesome-ish. If I hadn’t tasted the real thing, I would probably think this sauce is Awesome. 😉
