Every Singaporean sure loves their tau huay (or dou hua) because that’s almost always the first thing that comes into our minds when we are looking for the perfect supper fix. True enough, most tau huay stalls in Singapore open till late at night to cater to its demands. If you are still thinking about where to head for supper tonight, here are nine best tau huay in Singapore that you must really try, if not it’s a sin. (Rochor beancurd anyone?)
Lao Ban Soya Beancurd
Also possibly the very first tau huay store that would come into the minds of every Singaporean. The beancurd at Lao Ban is known for their pudding-like textures which is a stark difference from the traditional tau huay. There is also this distinct taste to it that sets it apart from the usual tau huays around.

51 Soya Bean Stall
The tau huay at 51 Soya Bean Stall has the closest consistencies and flavour to that of Lao Ban’s, just that it is slightly firmer and has a grainer after taste. It is also very experimental with flavours, such as mango, almond and even strawberry.

Rochor Original Beancurd
Rochor Original Beancurd is everyone’s go-to place in town when they are craving for a tau huay supper. They are also very famous for their fried dough sticks (You tiao) and soya bean milk.

Rochor Beancurd House
Many might confuse it with the Rochor Original Beancurd (so were we!), but they are both run by different owners. Rochor Beancurd House has three locations in Singapore, and they open till the wee hours. Many frequent them for their dough sticks and beancurd as well!

Mr Bean Singapore
Mr Bean can be found in most shopping malls in Singapore. They have the firmest beancurd that I have ever tasted and also allows you to customise the sugar levels of your beancurd! Many people are a huge fan of their addictive pancakes too!
QQ Soya Bean
As though the number of stalls selling tau huay at Old Airport Road Hawker Centre isn’t enough, QQ soya bean is another rival of Lao Ban Soya Beancurd and 51 Soya Bean Stall. The consistencies of their beancurd are silkier and smoother than the former two.

Crowned as the tau huay that melts in your mouth, Beancurd City is well-loved by many for their traditional home-made bean curds. The store is run by younger brother of the boss at Rochor Original Beancurd!

Selegie Soya Bean
Selegie Soya Bean has since flourished into a business comprising of five shops and two market stalls. They promise to serve the freshest and dessert and food snacks while maintaining reasonable prices.

Ipoh Tau Huay
When all else fails, you can also travel out to Ipoh during your vacation where the land of tau huay awaits!
