Semi-Homemade Tahô ( Taho/Tahu)

Tahô ( Soybean Custard) is a common breakfast in the Philippines. Tahô is made of fresh soft/silken tofu, pearl sago ( Tapioca Pearl )  and  brown sugar syrup (arnibal ).This is usually sold by the Magtatahô (taho vendor) in the morning. The Tahô vendor carries two large aluminum buckets hanging from each end of yoke. It is hard not to notice the vendors calling out "Tahoooooô!" while they are passing by your street. In other Asian countries like Indonesia and Malaysia, this food is called Tahu.

For those that are living abroad where there is no Magtatahô vendor -- Here's an easy Semi-Homemade Tahô Recipe for you. I really do not know who to credit on this one because I have seen so many Filipino Taho posting in Youtube.

Semi-Homemade Tahô Recipe


1 pkg (12 0z)   Silken/Soft Tofu
