Lao ban soya bean curd vs 51 soya bean curd

I’m going to blog about this 2 special & famous soya bean curd in Singapore, where people willing to queue up for 15mins just to get their hands on it.

Well, that only applicable to the famous lao ban soya bean curd aka 老伴豆花. You will never have to queue up that long for it.

Lucky me, I get to taste the both of them, especially 51 soya beancurd which is at Army Market food centre nearby my office.

The texture of this bean curd was really soft and the milky taste just dissolved instantly when you put them in your mouth.

It’s very refreshing. Definitely different from the usual bean curd you can have anywhere.

51 Soya Bean only has 2 stores in Singapore:

Lets move on to Lao ban bean curd. They are famous for their almond bean curd. However, I’m not a big fan of almond. And in order to compare both 51 and lao ban, I have opt for original taste.

To me, this lao ban bean curd tasted very silky and smooth. Not so strong on the milky taste and it also felt refreshing. 🙂

Well, after tastes both, my conclusion will be:

1. 51 tasted stronger than lao ban.The milky taste is definitely strong in 51. Lao ban slightly softer in the taste. However, if you are not a milk person, then you will prefer lao ban bean curd better.

2. Both are of the same price ~ $1.50/bowl. On a losing side for lao ban, is that they didn’t offer soya bean drink where 51 did offer it. And it tasted just like the bean curd. It’s really the best soya bean I’ve ever drank.

3. No waiting time for 51 where else you have to wait for some time in order to buy 1 bowl of lao ban bean curd.

Ahem, not to be bias, I would rather go for 51 than lao ban. But, this is depends on individual. 🙂 Do check them out guys~! And no, I’m not paid by 51 to write this blog. It is just my own opinion. ^.^

 So, what’s your preference?
