This is one of the staple breakfast food in the Philippines which you buy from a vendor that usually goes ’round the village calling out “Tahooooooooooooooooo!!!” Actually, where I used to live, if you hear this, it means I’m late for work. 😛
Both are of course made of soya but the Filipino version usually goes with brown sugar syrup and tapioca. I am not a tapioca-fan so I usually tell the vendor to leave those out. Here in Vietnam, the đậu hủ is accompanied with ginger-flavored syrup. Yup, they have actual ginger in it — and surprisingly, I actually enjoy having this for breakfast. My officemate told me that the ginger is good for digestion. More healthy meals from Vietnam, eh? A definite must try!
Leaving you with a video of a couple of Americans trying to sell taho in the Philippines:
