During my recent trip to Singapore, Bie and I stayed in a hotel at Bugis area. When we were at Bugis Downtown MRT station, Sun Sun said she wanna intro us this tau fu fa (beancurd jelly/豆腐花) that she always crave for. And of course we agreed to it! Trying what the locals eat is always better than eating touristy food.
糖仔 (Tang Zai)
Sun Sun said the brand she bought normally is called 老伴 but this stall here at Bugis Downtown MRT station is called 糖仔 (Tang Zai). They claimed that it’s the same though but we still felt skeptical. After all, why would a famous brand change their name to confuse their loyal fans, right?
We bought Tang Zai Original Soya Beancurd anyway. After Sun Sun tried the first spoonful, she confirmed that this is indeed the one she ate before. First impression – Unlike the usual taufu fah, it looks super smooth, compact and doesn’t break into pieces easily.
Taste wise, I love it so much because it is less sweet compared to traditional Chinese beancurd pudding. Tang Zai’s beancurd pudding is also less watery and has the texture of an exact pudding!
This is the most unique taufu fah I’ve ever eaten in my whole life! Apparently, this brand (Tang Zai @ 糖仔) was formed by the son of 老伴’s founder since the father has no intention to expand overseas.
I also found out that they have already franchised this brand to Malaysia by the name of Sugar Kid. The location is at My Food Loft, KL Sentral but I’ve yet to try it.
