Add tofu to fryer and fry until golden brown. Remove tofu and drain on paper towels

Add 1 TB oil to a wok or pan and heat. Fry pickled garlic and shallots for 1 minute. Add tofu to pan and stir. Cook 1 more minute and remove from pan.

Combine sauce ingredients and stir to dissolve sugar.

Place a pile of crispy rice noodles on a plate, topping with a little bit of the fried egg and the tofu mixture. Spoon sauce over dish and garnish with bean sprouts, sliced chilis, scallions, and cilantro. .
