Line-ups for food are a traveler’s best friend. Have I mentioned this before? I have? A million times? Well, it’s true.
The latest line-based discovery: a street food stand called Uncle Bean, which serves up some seriously delicious tofu-based desserts.
There’s a few things on the menu, but most people seemed to be ordering the tau fu fa, which is an incredibly creamy tofu pudding. They have a few different syrups you can top it with (the tofu itself isn’t sweet at all); I got the brown sugar ginger.
It was really, really good. The tofu is silky and amazing; it doesn’t taste like much, but that’s what the syrup is for. A lot of ginger-based desserts are a bit too overpowering for me, but the syrup here managed to strike a perfect balance of sweetness with a very subtle ginger kick. Bonus: it cost about 50 cents Canadian. I could eat a million of these.
