Kung Woo Bean Products, Sham Shui Po, Hong Kong

Yes, in spite of sounding obvious, this place (G/F, 118 Pei Ho Street, Sham Shui Po) does sell bean based products and one can either purchase for home consumption and usage or order freshly made and cooked bean curd items to be had in the premise of their shop. I hear that this particular stall has been around since the 60s.

Because the interior of the shop was already filled to the brim, we had to settle for huddling along tables on the sides of the shop in the alley. There was a small plate of pan fried assorted tofu and tau huay and a some chary smokey scented soya bean drink. I think it was all pretty good stuff if one is into bean based flavors which were definitely quite prominent. It helped as well that the turn over for food was pretty high, judging by the crowd and cooked items were really freshly done up. I'm not sure if everyone could relate to this stuff, but it was very much to me a taste of a time gone by. I'm not sure if this kind of quality can ever be found back home.
