Kung Wo Soya Bean Products (公和荳品廠) at Sham Shui Po is one of my more memorable eats in Hong Kong thanks to their unique Tau Fu Fa. Like the shop’s name suggest, Kung Wo is an everything soy-related kind of factory cum eatery so they also sells raw ingredients like beancurds and beansprouts.
The Tau Fu Fa is of course soft and silky smooth as expected and tastes just slightly sweet with only a small drizzle of sugar syrup. I believe it is made this way so that the sweetness will not overpower the subtle soy flavor. And actually it is the “red sugar” that makes it one of a kind for me.
The powder like red sugar is made from sugarcane and coconut and has a very fine texture like caster sugar’s hence it melts easily when it comes to contact with the Tau Fu Fa. As for its flavor, it is quite similar to Gula Melaka’s but not as sweet and strong. Somehow I find this combination works really well since you have full control of the sweetness level. We also tried their soya bean milk and pan fried yong tau fu but I think we have far better ones in Malaysia, especially the latter.
The yong tau fu are freshly made and pan-fried non-stop, mainly to cater to those who take away.
Limited number of tables here and the environment is even below par the normal Char Chan Teng but it’s the experience that counts.
In short, Kung Wo is worth dropping by just for their of Tau Fu Fa that is makes a light and satisfying afternoon snack. No harm trying the other stuffs since you are already there anyway (plus, they are real cheap) But keep your expectations low.
