Same thing, actually. Yong tofu ($8) — elsewhere, when you can find it, the transliteration may be tau fu, tau foo, tao foo or the like — is a name liberally applied to dishes in which many ingredients are filled with fish paste, or, sometimes, a paste of fish and meat. It may be served dry with chili sauce on the side, or as at Laut, in a choice of clear broth or this curry gravy; the okra, peppers, and eggplant in this version were unusually fresh. Also: roti telur ($6), light pancakes flavored with egg, scallion, onion, and pepper, to dip, scoop, or wipe in a bowl of chicken curry sauce.
