How do you use Yentafo sauce?
Take out the fish balls and tofu and add to bowls. Add about 1 – 1½ tablespoon of Yen Ta Fo sauce per bowl (you can add more later if you like), sprinkle with a teaspoon of fried garlic and oil, and pour the hot broth over. Sprinkle with chopped cilantro and/or green onions, and garnish with fried wontons, if using.
