HKG: Kin Hing Tofu Pudding (建興亞婆豆腐花)

A bowl of hot tofu pudding on the way to Yung Shue Wan! 

After a what-I-considered-to-be-pretty-light lunch, we decided to walk back to Yung Shue Wan to catch a ferry back to the main island instead of trekking all the way to Sok Kwu Wan as my mom wouldn't be able to walk too far. On the way back, we stopped by a small shop with a shelter, specialising in dou hua (Chinese soybean pudding).

Tofu Pudding (Hot) HK$10.00 (~S$1.75)
Taste: 8.5/10

When I was a little boy, I used to dislike the pudding, probably due to the smell. Anyway, I found the consistency of the pudding to be enjoyably smooth and velvety as what I'd like it to be. The sugar syrup was of adequate sweetness and had a nice ginger aroma. Pika's advice: Its cold counterpart is also available for those who dislike it hot.

Taste: 8.5/10
Ambience: 5.5/10
Overall: 7/10

I wouldn't purposely walk all the way just to go to the shop, but certainly its location is strategic as a pit stop for many who're looking for a short break on the way to either Yung Shue Wan or Hung Shin Yeh Beach. As a bonus, I'm going to include a picture of a Pikachu statue at The One in Tsim Sha Tsui, a fortuitous find during my mini adventure to find a supermarket around the region.
