Famous Kimberley Street Douhua (Soybean Pudding) – The night falls and the heart of George Town calms down a bit where working people went back home after a long day of work. Another life of the city wakes up at night – the hawker stalls. Kimberley Street, also known as Shantou Jie (mandarin), Shantou Kai (cantonese), Swatao keh (hokkien) came alive at night where hawker stalls park along the road, offering delicious Penang’s Char Koay Teow and more.
There is one lorry that has been there for many years and that’s the Kimberley Street Soya Bean & Douhua (Soybean Pudding). It sells soya bean milk, soybean pudding (douhua), soybean jelly, grass jelly drinks, as well as fruit yogurt.
Besides locating on Kimberley Street, the stall has another branch at the famous Gurney Drive Hawker’s area. A bowl of douhua/toufufa/doufuhua cost about RM2.50 and it serves your after-meal desserts well. The soft and smooth pudding with taste of bean and the mixture of black sugar syrup makes it pleasant to it. It splashes and break upon entering the mouth, sliding down smoothly into the throat. However, it doesn’t feel as smooth as the douhua that I had in Hong Kong.
Brother is a douhua fans, but not me, I just eat it for fun, some times. How about you?
