Even though there are a few stalls selling soya beancurd in Old Airport Road Food Centre, only Lao Ban Soya Beancurd had a queue when I was there at 8pm on a Saturday and the queue seemed perpetually long.
After queuing for more than 10 minutes, I got my bowl of original soya beancurd which costs $1.50. My first impression when I tried the beancurd was that it seemed to taste like soya pudding instead because it does not come with syrup and it is so soft and smooth that it "dissolves" effortlessly in the mouth. Unlike the typical soya beancurd, it has a unique malt sweetness that lingers on the taste buds.
I believe the reason why Lao Ban soya beancurd is so appealing to the crowds because it is so special and different. However, if you are a fan of traditional soya beancurd like me, Lao Ban will probably not impress you enough to return for more.
