Its strange that I have actually been to this shop a long time before, but never knew its name and its fame in HK - in fact, I didn't even realise it had another old shop in 九龍城 under the same name, nor of the other outlets. All I knew was its half hidden location.
煎魚肉豆腐 - This was ok I suppose, but the fish part is 'surprisingly' not as good as the one in 人和 shop in Mongkok, despite that being boring as well. The beancurd here was not very smooth, it had a slight sour bean taste but that's expected in Hong Kong. Not aromatic or great asting tofu at all.
Cold Soy Milk - Very sweet. Upon my first sip, I realised I should have asked for non-sugared one. Very little bean taste if any.
Hot Tofu Curd - Utterly disappointing. To claim as HK's no.1 tofu shop or at least that's what everyone says, I was surprised how little tofu smell and taste there was..... the water it came in was also way too sweet, covering its weakness perhaps? Excuse me for being graphic but I tried to suck out the sugar-water in each sip, before tasting the Tofu Curd. I just couldn't detect any good bean taste from it, at most, there was a slight soy bean sourness.
When I ate the same at 人和, there was at least a little trace of bean taste, despite it not being apparent. In fact, I thought this Tofu Curd wasn't even that smooth, compared to some other ones I've had, it was also breaking apart in chunks rather than slivers.
Here, the Tofu Curd Taste and Texture is BELOW STANDARDS.
Perhaps that highlights the different 'tasting' abilities and weaknessed or strong points of each individual. I've noticed that some people seem to think there's a lot of beef taste in Pro-Burger and Freshness Burger, whereas to me Pro-Burger had no meat taste but only Thyme Herb taste, whereas Freshness Burger was rather fake and also had seasoning and herb taste only. Whilst I detected a lot of 米味 in 添好運點心's 腸粉 (at the beginning and also after its gone downhill), a lot of people think there's no 米味 in their Rice Paper Roll. Somehow, everyone has a little bit of differing opinions in their tastebuds. Perhaps, my weakness is in detecting Bean's taste lol..... but surprisingly, I've had slightly better at 人和 so far, also, the tofu's at Apita or CitySuper, or some specialty shops in Kyoto and Tokyo had very powerful tasting tofu's (although eaten as savoury).Personally, a Crying Face and I'm not influenced by other's scores. Therefore a high '2' at most. However may be I should give it the benefit of the doubt? Since everyone gave it big smiles. Not sure.
