Ng Ka Chun and Sunny Chan, Tofu Trucks, 2013


On the occasion of From Dusk Till Dawn, a full day of real-time activities held on May 24, 2013, Ng Ka Chun partnered up with local organic chef Sunny Chan to serve visiting guests a wholesome bite. Six mobile stalls or  ‘tofu trucks’ were set up, each stall serving a dish that contains tofu or a bean constituent. Their mission: to promote healthy eating and to support local organic produce. Sunny Chan makes his dishes out of tofu made from locally grown organic soy beans and brine, from the Mapopo Community Farm located in the New Territories, Hong Kong.

The menu consisted of:

1. Deep fried tofu veggies balls with local soy sauce
2. Focaccia wit rooftop‐grown rosemary
3. Tofu and nori sandwiches with homemade teriyaki sauce
4. Naan with homemade tomato sauce
5. Buckwheat vegetables crepe with fermented bean curd sauce
6. Tofu pancake with sweet red bean paste
