I never queue. I hate queueing. I think there is good food everywhere so I never queue. But I queued 30 minutes for this beancurd – and it was SO worth the time.
It’s not normal beancurd. There is no sugar syrup. The entire thing itself was agar-agar (jelly for you angmohs). You put it in your mouth, press your tongue against the roof of your mouth, and the whole solid piece bursts into liquid soya milk!!! I kid you not. It’s like the fourth state, solid, liquid, gas, and this one is solid-liquid. No wonder every person buys 20 packets at one go!
I told my sister and she said, don’t exaggerate. I asked her to try and she was, “OMG. HOW COME?!? HOW IS IT POSSIBLE?? It defies the laws of nature!!”
I told hookerlily and she said, “It’s like an ejaculation, hard in the mouth, liquid later.”
There are two flavors, the original ($1.50) (cutely called “老花” (presbyopia) punning on the word “豆花“) and almond($2) (or “老仁” (old people) punning on 杏仁). Of the two, I think the original is much sweeter, tasting a bit of brown sugar. The almond one, however, is less “soft” than the original.
The pretty daughter in charge of packing and money is very sweet and polite and friendly. This family is going to get so rich.
Tip: You can call them to make reservations.
DIE, DIE, Must eat!!
