The demand for Tau Hua (Soya Beancurd) is continually growing, the classic dessert is known have a myriad of health benefits and the fact that its simple and light makes it suitable as an afternoon tea time snack or quick supper fix. But the new kid on the block- SoyaTec (缘豆家) offers a slight twist to the local delicacy. It adopts Japanese technology and cooking method... sans Gypsum (石膏粉). On top of that, there's a nice touch to the Syrup in lieu of the traditionally used Black Sugar. The other products- the Soymilk series is also worth-looking. Noteworthy flavors include Matcha, Sesame, Chocolate, Coffee and of course, the classic ones. It runs as a takeaway spot but if you wish to dine-in, there are a couple of tables available too. A must-check out place for ardent fans of Soya Milk and Soya Beancurd.
Signature Japanese Soybean Pudding (Rm 4.20)
Classic Soybean Pudding (Rm 3.50)
Sesame Soymilk (Rm 6.80)
SoyaTec's Soya Beancurd has a slightly denser, firmer and perhaps, a little grainier texture as compared to the traditional ones. We were told the difference due to the absence of Gypsum. The Signature version uses sweetened Soya Milk while the Classic one uses Syrup... with the same toppings of Mung Beans and Red Beans. I did not find them particularly overwhelming but I do like the fact that it was served chilled.
The Soymilk on the other hand, was beyond amazing. If you like your Soya Milk creamy thick and rich, SoyaTec's would fit for you. We had Sesame Soymilk and the result was most pleasing... the Sesame flavor was so intense that for a moment, I thought I was having Sesame paste. It was beautifully sweetened as well, but it might be too rich for one to finish entirely... of course you can always pack it back if you could not finish it.
