yuba
 n.— «It came as quite a surprise to find myself sitting in a sliver of a restaurant in Kyoto called Kappo Sakamoto, swooning over a dish of tofu—or tofu skin, to be more precise. Called yuba, it arrived in a handmade wooden box, simmering in water heated by a piece of charcoal.» —“The Way We Eat: I Can’t Believe It’s Tofu” by Daniel Patterson New York Times Aug. 6, 2006.
