Kung Woo Bean Products (公和荳品廠), Sham Shui Po, Hong Kong

Kung Woo Bean Products (公和荳品廠), Sham Shui Po
In spite of sounding obvious, this place (G/F, 118 Pei Ho Street, Sham Shui Po) does sell bean based products which one can either purchase for home consumption freshly made and cooked items to be had in the premise of their shop. I hear that this particular stall has been around since the 60s.

Since the interior of the shop had already been 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 smokey scented soya bean drink. Was all pretty good stuff if one was into their bean based flavour. It helped as well that the turn over for food was pretty high judging by the unabating crowd and cooked food. I'm not sure if everyone could relate to this stuff but it was to me a taste of a time gone by. I'm not sure if this kind of quality can ever be found back home.
