This spot serves the best tofu pudding in town, thanks to an age-old, time-consuming process that involves grinding the soybeans with a traditional stone mill.
ADDRESS
118 Bei Ho Street, Sham Shui Po, Hong Kong

The Overview

Buried behind a row of hawker stalls in Sham Shui Po, Kowloon, is this modest century-old shop specializing in soybean dishes. From the looks of it, not much has changed for the past few decades, including, thankfully, the delicate texture and taste of its handmade tofu. If you're after something savory, order the pan-fried tofu topped with a fish paste seasoned with spices and dried orange peel. But the star here is the melt-in-your-mouth tofu pudding, or daofu fa—comforting when eaten warm, refreshing when cold. This spot serves the best in town, thanks to an age-old, time-consuming process that involves grinding the soybeans with a traditional stone mill—it's slow food, Canto-style.
