1. Lao Ban Soya Beancurd
Possibly the pioneers of the soya beancurd craze, Lao Ban Soya Beancurd has got Singaporeans queuing for hours at its very first stall at Old Airport Road.
Serving up two beancurd flavours – original and almond – their simple, pudding-like beancurd texture has drawn many to buy several bowls at one go.
What sets them apart from their competitors is their smooth and silky beancurd texture. With a beancurd consistency that literally melts-in-your-mouth, who could ever resist?!

2. 51 Soya Bean
51 Soya Bean serves up a slightly firmer and grainier beancurd texture as compared to its closest neighbour, Lao Ban. Nonetheless, this particular tau huay stall still has regular customers of its own, who love its smooth and velvety beancurd texture!
They also serve soya beancurd in a quirky range of flavours such as strawberry, mango, and even bandung!

With its late-night operating hours and conveniently located in the Central region, the Rochor Original Beancurd is undeniably the go-to supper place for tau huay lovers! Boasting a sweet and firm yet silky beancurd texture that hardly breaks when you scoop it up!

4. Rochor Beancurd House
Many might mix this up with the Rochor beancurd at Short Street but Rochor Beancurd House is catered more towards the tau huay heart-landers.
It is open until the wee hours of the night, this is a hot supper spot for those looking for a refreshing and satisfying bowl.
On top of their signature silken soya beancurd, you can even add toppings such as red bean, peanuts or even peanut riceball.
Of course, no tau huay meal is complete without youtiao or egg tarts. Rochor Beancurd House is constantly experimenting with new items (such as tofu fries!) so be sure to check in regularly!

6. Selegie Soya Bean
Selegie Soya Bean has gained a foothold in the soya beancurd community with its sweet and tantalising soya beancurd.
It infuses a modern twist to its traditional beancurd by incorporating ingredients such as gingko nuts and glutinous rice balls filled with grass jelly or fruits.
With other traditional snacks such as fried carrot cake and even homemade muffins to go along, it will definitely take your tau huay meal up a notch!

7. Beancurd City
Beancurd city comes with just the right amount of sugar sweetness.
Located just beside Rochor Original Beancurd (its direct competitor), Beancurd City’s version is soft and silky. It has just the right amount of sweet syrup without going overboard on the sweetness level.
Likewise, a beancurd meal is hardly ever complete without the accompaniment of a youtiao or butterfly fritters.
