Rochor Beancurd

Picky Girlfriend and Fussy Boyfriend decided to go to have some deserts as Fussy Boyfriend had a craving! Probably the first thing that came to mind would be cakes, ice cream etc but this time round we wanted something lighter and traditional so here's we went..

Rochor Beancurd

Many would have heard of this place and we have also been there a few times as well. But starting our own food blog means that we will have to test the food again with higher level of sensitivity this time! Extra calories all for a good cause :)

The first thing that strike us was really the strong soya bean fragrance the moment we entered the store. And wow, it was packed so we had to go up to level 2 in order to get a seat.

Here's what we ordered:

  • Beancurd (better known as Tau Huey)
  • Hot Soya bean drink
  • Butterfly fritters
  • You tiao 油条
  • Portuguese Egg Tart
Prices range from $0.80 to $1.30. Totally affordable deserts in our opinion!

The tau huey was really smooth and silky. And every mouth of it can easily glide down your throat. And one plus point that Picky Girlfriend and Fussy Boyfriend like is the fact that the sugar syrup is not too sweet which we believe is suitable for health conscious people! Their sugar syrup is a little browish looking which is quite different from the usual ones we see at the hawker which are transparent clear syrup. It also does not have a sourish after taste which most tau huey have!

Rating: 3.5/5

Next we tried the you tiao which was rather impressive. Crispy on the outside, soft and fluffy in the inside. The first bite was heavenly! And Fussy boyfriend took a close up shot of it! :)

Picky girlfriend recommends the below method to eat you tiao, but don't dip it for too long. You tiao taste best with warm soya bean once the you tiao has absorbed some of the soya bean drink. Be caution when you sip the hot soya drink from the straw as you may burnt your tongue if that is too fast!

Dip it in!

However, fussy boyfriend being the more health conscious one felt that it was a tad too oily and do not encourage dipping that into the drink as that may make the drink oily too! Well.. who do you agree with? :)

Picky girlfriend rating for youtiao : 3.5/5
Fussy boyfriend rating for youtiao : 3/5

Both of us felt that the butterfly fritters and egg tart were quite normal and really nothing much to rave about with its thick flourish filling and hard crust for the egg tart. Pretty optional food when you do not want to waste stomach space!

Ratings for both butterfly fritters and egg tart: 2/5
