So, I have this THING about twins. My fascination found its origin in the fact that twins run on my father's side of the family (currently, we have 6 sets within 3 generations). I loved hearing stories about my uncles' special twin language and the antics my father and his twin got into during Catholic school.
I channeled this fascination (never fetish) as a former academic and continue to be drawn to narratives involving fraternal and identical sibling sets. Pepper Twins naturally piqued my interest when they opened as I assumed there was a great real-life twin story regarding the name. Well, not really. However, by the time I learned the owners are "just" brother and sister, I was already smitten, but for a far different reason.
Three words: Fish Loves Tofu.
This fine romance between silken tofu and tender, lightly battered white fish in a red chili sauce that boasts a tremendously sophisticated flavor profile. Each spoonful reveals alternate notes of pepper, sweetness, tang, sour, salt, and umami, which in culmination make for a comforting, highly addictive stew. Such broth is only improved upon via the presence of the supple piscine and bean curd proteins.
