Excellent Tofu & Snacks

After an unsuccessful attempt to play beach v-ball, we decided to drown our sorrows in dessert. One buddy suggested we go for dofu fah at Excellent Tofu & Snacks. It’s located next door to Mango Mama.

We dropped in on a Sunday afternoon (around 2:30pm). There was a constant group of people coming in for a quick dessert. The inside is very retro with an old school diner vibe to it. We sat at the counter and got to watch the two ladies work their tofu magic.

This is the magical pot where they dish out the silky tofu.

The menu is split into soy pudding (hot or cold), flavoured soy pudding (cold), snacks and soymilk.

Super odd that there’s separate menu with the prices but at least prices already include taxes.

There’s also a couple fridges up at the front where you can buy soy pudding, bottled syrup and soy milk to go.

2x Plain dofu fah (#1) ($4.50)
DSC09569Both of my buddies got their soy pudding au natural.

That’s the way to do it; in it’s purest form.

Black sesame paste dofu fah (#10) ($5.00)
DSC09572B and I shared a black sesame soy pudding. Silky smooth pieces of fresh tofu.

The flavour is subtle with only a hint of sweetness; if you want more, you’ll have to add one of the syrups.

Black bean soymilk (#33) ($2.50)
DSC09578This was interesting. Light, kind of earthy flavour. A bit hard to describe but I liked it from the two spoonfuls that I sampled.

2x Lo bak go (#52) ($4.50)
DSC09580We requested the pan fried turnip cakes to be extra crispy. Slightly greasy (as it usually is) but good flavour.

DSC09582

Ask for a side of their hot chili sauce.

Interesting spot to satisfy your tofu dessert/cravings. Cash only.
