Each plastic bag contains 5 bowls of soya beancurd from Lao Ban at Old Airport Road. A group of us trooped there for lunch and each of us bought at least 2 bags. Each.
Anyway, the good news: A colleague just shared that the secret recipe to make this dessert-of-the-moment is not so secret anymore. Check it out:
Apparently, the instant jelly powder from Phoon Huat is sold out because the whole world is now trying to make their own tau huay. Might try making it one day since it seems really easy!
And just so you know, I spent $21 on tau huay today. Gulp. Sadly, they’re no longer as smooth. Perhaps the rush to mass produce them has resulted in a less than stellar product. Pity.
