Lao Ban Soya Beancurd 老伴豆花 (Maxwell Food Centre)

Visited Lao Ban Soya Beancurd at Maxwell. As usual, there was a queue at the stall.

Menu with Price
Menu showing what is available and the price.
Now, they display the number the beancurds left in the fridge so that customers do not queue and get disappointed when stocks run out. In the above photo, it shows that there are just 50 Almond Beancurd left. Good initiative! 
Original Beancurd $1.50
A thin film like layer on the top. Anyone knows what causes this?

Well, I have tried many other similar kinds of beancurds, Lao Ban's version is still the best so far. In terms of taste and melt in the mouth sensation, theirs is unbeatable. 

I have tried to made this several times, but I must admit I am nowhere near to Lao Ban's version. Mine is closer to 51 Soya Bean in terms of taste. Click here for the chilled beancurd recipe. 

If anyone has any idea or knows the recipe for Lao Ban's version please let me know! Thanks!

Lastly, they have opened a new outlet at One Raffles Place!

  1. Must have been a unique and different from the rest in taste as I can read from your review. I too like soya bean and the curd version and these are healthy and cooling and chilling for the burning weather we have having now.

    1. Yes, to FoodieFC this really stands out and is the best thus far. Agree with you, it is ideal for a hot humid day!

    1. Seriously? Why are they not opening one in the north..

      Delete
    2. That I am not too sure. The one in Clementi is not prepared on the spot. It was transported from somewhere else, could be from the main branch in Old Airport Road. It tastes just as good :). Don't worry, I'm sure they will open one in the North, or maybe they already did!

    3. Since they have not opened in the North, I am now relying on making own chilled beancurd for now. haha

  9. Well, it is my favorite food. I used to eat dou hua long long time ago. Haha, it is very convenient to go to the One Raffles Place. There are so many friends who go to work in there. It is a good place.
