A syrupless Beancurd

Well, I guess most of the Singaporeans have eaten soya beancurd for Breakfast before. If I'm not mistaken, most of the soya beancurd that you are getting from a hawker will comes with a bit of sweet syrup but...

in order to get a bowl of "Soya Beancurd", are you willing to stand
behind such a long queue? This is pretty much similar to gambling.
Especially when long queue doesn't really mean that the food is
delicious let alone it's simple stuff like "Soya Beancurd".

So what's so special about this beancurd?
First of all, the "Soya Beancurd" that you are getting at this stall
is syrupless. Secondly, it's pretty much jelly like. The texture is
pretty soft and after shaking it a bit, some ripples tend to appear
on the surface of the "Soya Beancurd". Third but not least, though
you can only get cold "Soya Beancurd" at this place, but the
"Soya Beancurd" is pretty much the same as a "Soyabean" flavour
"Mango Pudding".

Taste wise, by putting a scoop of the "Soya Beancurd" into your mouth
it will slowly melt into your throat. It's soft like ice cream, but it
doesn't melt so easily under the hot sun. :) Although the taste of the
original flavour is pretty good, but the taste of the
"Almond Soya Beancurd" is so strong that it kinda makes the original
flavour looks kinda boring. :P
(How do I know? Because I have tried both flavours at one go.)

So where can you get this cold "Soya Beancurd"?

The name of the stall would be "Lan Ban Soya Beancurd"(老伴豆花).
They currently have a few stalls island wide. The main branch can
be found in "Old Airport Road Food Centre". The other branches can
be found in "Maxwell Food Centre" and "One Raffles Place".
The photos that I have shown here belongs to the main branch
that is located in "Old Airport Road Food Centre".
