51 Soya Bean (Golden Mile Food Centre) (2nd post)

The beancurd craze has spread out of Old Airport Road Food Centre. Recently, Lao Ban Soya Beancurd has opened a branch at Maxwell Food Centre. While 51 Soya Bean has also opened a branch, at Golden Mile food Centre.

I was at Golden Mile Food Centre eating recently when I chanced upon 51 Soya Bean. I am guessing that the stall was recently opened as there was no crowd. Was there at 1215pm on a weekday. I sat near the stall while waiting for my chicken rice.

51 Soya Bean's Price

Cold Soya Bean Drink $1.00

Since there was no queue, we ordered the Cold Soya Bean Drink. It is quite small, not enough to qench my thirst. But it was certainty very refreshing!

After finishing my meal, there was a short queue at the stall which was cleared within minutes.

Original Cold Beancurd $1.50

The Cold Beancurd is soft, silky, smooth with jelly-like appearance. Somehow, in terms of taste it was not even on par with its (51 Soya Bean) main branch. Certainty no melt in your mouth sensation. I guess my expectation was too high. An average beancurd, do try it if you have never try such a new kind of beancurd before.

51 Soya Bean

51 Soya Bean is located at  Old Airport Road Food Centre. I went to try this as the Lao Ban Soya Beancurd 老伴豆花 was sold out. There was no queue at this stall.

51 Soya Bean sells Original Cold Beancurd, Cold Almond Beancurd, Cold (Soya) Bean Drink and even Durian Beancurd!

Original Cold Beancurd $1.50

Looks so plain and boring. Well appearances can be deceiving. Let me compare 51 Soya Bean with Lao Ban Soya Beancurd 老伴豆花.

– Price: Both $1.50 (Same)

– Appearance/texture: Both are soft, smooth, silky and looks like a jelly pudding (Same)

– Taste: Both are so soft and smooth that it slides down your throat. Lao Ban Soya Beancurd also provided melts in the mouth sensation and liquid seems to burst out in your mouth (Lao Ban  Soya Beancurd)

Conclusion: Lao Ban Soya Beancurd 老伴豆花 ‘s beancurd is the clear winner when compared to 51 Soya Bean. Overall, I would recommend 51 Soya Bean. For me I would go there if Lao Ban Soya Beancurd gets sold out. It really depends on individual preference. My post on Lao Ban Soya Beancurd can be found here.

*Edited 11 Sept 2011* Lao Ban Soya Beancurd has opened a new branch at Maxwell Food Centre. Location and operation hours are stated at end of this post.

Lao Ban Soya Beancurd 老伴豆花 is a must try if you ever step into Old Airport Road Hawker Centre.

As I am writting this, I got to know of an article which was written by KF Seetoh about this stall. Click here for the link.

This was taken when I was there the first time during lunch time on a weekday. It was sold out, there was only almond favour left. (not a fan of almond) Instead, we went to try its competitor ‘51 Soya Bean‘. Will do a separate review at a much later time. The comparison is that Lao Ban Soya Beancurd is so much better/nicer.

On the 2nd visit, also during a weekday lunch time. My colleague went to queue for it. At least 15-20 minutes wait. I was told by my friend who went over during weekend that he queued 40minutes for this! If you notice carefully as you queue or eat in the hawker centre, some customers can buy 20 packets of this!

Their soya beancurd comes in original or almond flavour. The more popular favour is original which gets sold out first.

Beancurd (Original) $1.50

The beancurd looks so ordinary, plain. But well, looks can be deceiving! This beancurd is so soft, smooth, silky and looks like a jelly pudding. And unlike the normal beancurd (Tau Huay) that most Singaporeans are familiar with, this does not comes with sweet syrup. This beancurd practically melts in your mouth and liquid seems to burst out in your mouth. Moreover, it is just slide down your throat. At $1.50, this is a relatively cheap dessert!

Trust me, give this a try and you will not regret it.If it is sold out in the afternoon, there will be another batch out in the evening.

Warning: once you eat this, it will never be the same eating other type of beancurds.
