Bentong Tau Foo Fah: Silken-smooth and refreshingly delicious

Tofu and Tau Foo Fah (tofu pudding) in ginger syrup.

If you ever find yourself in the vicinity of Bentong, make a beeline to the famous Tau Foo Fah shop there called Bentong Tau Fu Sdn Bhd.

The unassuming but hugely popular Bentong Tau Fu Sdn Bhd.

The shop is located within walking distance from the wet market where all the action is at.

Like the name suggests, they sell homemade tofu, a popular ingredient in most Chinese kitchens. The icing on the cake however, is the silken-smooth Tau Foo Fah they also serve as well as other soya bean drinks.

The Tau Foo Fah here, or tofu pudding, also known as soya beancurd, has a super smooth texture that slides down your throat and is especially refreshing on hot and humid days.

What stands out here however, is the unique ginger-based syrup made from the famous Bentong ginger which really adds to the overall flavour.

Peanut kuih.

Oh, and if you’re lunching on the famous Wantan Mee at Yuen Kee restaurant and someone comes up to you selling these peanut kuih, grab as many as you can.

These sweetmeats are absolutely melt-in-your-mouth delicious and undoubtedly the perfect way to end any meal on a sweet note.
