Tofu can be bland, but the Japanese use fried tofu as an appetizer. It’s popular and delicious. Here’s the thing: this is so easy to make, and takes so few ingredients, it’s surprising that more non-Japanese cooks and restaurants don’t serve it. It also goes really well as an appetizer for many types of Asian foods.
