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.

Went over to Old Airport Road Food Centre for lunch. There are many stores there and you will be spoil for choice on what to eat.
Albert Street Prawn Noodle sell Big Prawn Noodles. I ordered the (small) Prawn Noodles. There was a queue, not too long. Around 10 minutes of wait.
Prawn Noodles (Soup) $4
I ordered the Prawn Noodles $4. When I saw that my colleagues ordered the $5 Big Prawn Noodles. I knew immediately I should have ordered that! Should have taken a picture of theirs. Never mind, I will be back for that one day!
On the spoon, there’s curry powder on it. As it has been around 2 months since I ate this, I can’t remember much about it such as if the prawn was fresh. But I remember the soup is shiok (delicious). The soup was tasty, full of fragrant from the prawns. A real prawn soup! You just want to continue drinking mouth after mouth of the soup. Besides prawns, there was noodles, beansprouts and pieces of lard. Overall, this is a stall to try!

There are so many food stalls that serves good food at Old Airport Road Food Centre. Sometimes, you would be spoil for a choice on what to eat. Decided to try Lao Fu Zi Fried Kway Teow after walking around the food centre.
The lunchtime queue. waited for about 20 minutes. There was about 5 people in front of me. Some ordered more than 1 plate, hence the long wait.
The cost per plate.
man people team. The lady wearing green takes the orders, relay the orders to the lady in white at the left of the above picture, collects the money and prepare the plate with banana leaf. The guy in the background is the chef. Each plate of Kway Teow is fried separately. Even if you order 2 plates, no worries it is also fried separately. I am glad that he did not fried it together so as to serve more customers. Kudos to them for not taking the lazy way. Each plate is fried with lots of love care and effort! Imagine frying it non-stop!
This lady is the one who prepares the ingredients for each plate of Kway Teow so as to save the chef the hassle of wasting time preparing.
Fried Kway Teow $4
The kway teow is served on banana leaf. The kway teow was fried with black soya sauce and sweet sauce, hence the colour. It was quite well fried as each piece of noodle and kway teow was coated with the sauce. The cockles were just so-so. Overall, it was a delicious plate of kway teow. However, 2 things were lacking. Firstly, if they had used lard, it would have added the extra oomph. Secondly, more slices of chinese sausage could have been added to enhance the taste. Despite this, I will still recommend this stall, one of the better kway teow stalls around.
