Tofu pudding is a staple in Cantonese dessert that can be served cold or hot, sweet or unsweetened, and plain or toppings. Excellent Tofu is a no frill's looking shop serving up the best tofu dessert in the city in our opinion. They limit their menu to mainly tofu and soy milk and the results are the best in the city. This is the silkiest tofu we have ever ate. We usually do one with toppings and one plain. The tofu pudding comes unsweetened but there are bottles of simple and ginger infused syrup to add the right amount of sweetness for you.
In China, tofu pudding is actually served for breakfast and is topped with savoury toppings instead of sweets. They have it here as well but we have never tried it. If you're interested, it's called "Soy Pudding Shanghai Style" on menu!
Customers have the option to dine in, but also can take home 1,2 or 4 litres of tofu pudding or soy milk. You have an option for sweet or unsweet for the soy pudding, and soy milk. With the soy milk, they have regular and black soy milk.
