55 Jardine’s Bazaar,
Causeway Bay, Hong Kong
Just to make things clear, this place has been one of my favorite places in Hong Kong since I was a kid. I’ve been coming to this tofu place before it moved across the street and yes, I can vouch for the fact that their price never increased by much throughout the years.
Their cold tofu dessert (豆腐花) is a must, must, must must try! It is what draws me back to the place every time I come back to Hong Kong through all these years (I’m actually not that old but I did start coming since I was a few years old). The quality and taste of the tofu dessert cannot be matched. The tofu is silky while it retains a light tofu taste. Paired with the cold syrup added to the tofu, it’s perfect for a sweaty, humid summer day in Hong Kong. If you do find a place with better tofu dessert though, please let me know. I’ll hop onto the MTR right away!
Their pan-fried tofu with stuffed fish meat is also one of their specialties. They serve their tofu without much seasoning, which I find, is pretty rare in Hong Kong. Add your own fix of soya sauce and chili sauce and you’re all good to go.
I don’t have an image here but their fried noodle is another must-try.
Yan Wo is a pretty good dessert/snack place. I tend to visit the store for a bowl (most of the times, it’s actually two bowls) of their tofu dessert during my shopping breaks. I was also lucky enough to intern in Causeway Bay, just steps away from Yan Wo, so I did spend my fair share of time (and salary) at this tofu place. For those of you who prefer a stronger tofu taste, go for the hot tofu dessert.
If you haven’t been here already, I STRONGLY suggest you make a trip here soon! And as always…
