Taho Boy and Soy Yummy Food Review

Taho or Soy Bean Curd in english is a favorite filipino delicacy traditionally sold by street vendors. The taho is placed on a cylindrical metallic container and placed on each end of a bamboo pole as shown in the illustration below:

It comes as no surprise that business-minded filipinos have tried to commercialize these classic pinoy delicacies. Their efforts materialized into mall stalls, two of such have become brands that are popular i.e. Soy Yummy and Taho Boy. My wife, being an avid taho fanatic, always visits either of these stalls every time we go to the mall, so I decided it’s time to write about them.

Taho Boy

Taho Boy sells Soya Fruit Slushes as well as taho (Soya Bean Curd). We only tried the taho, which this food review about. They sell hot or cold taho and your choice of the following syrup flavors: Almond, Plain, Buko Pandan.

The texture and the consistency of their taho is smooth and soft. But the slightly burnt aftertaste of the taho sold by Taho Boy is very disappointing, the extent of the burnt aftertaste varies from shop to shop and also changes every time we visit (we have tried SM Makati, Market Market and SM Megamall countless times). The syrup is thick and dark, giving the impression that it is sweet but unfortunately it isn’t, which leads me to conclude that they use too much food coloring/flavouring and too little brown sugar when making the syrup. Not only is the syrup lacking in sweetness, it is also served in very small quantities certainly not enough to help overpower the burnt aftertaste of the taho. The almond syrup is the worst as it tastes sooo weird that even my wife cannot understand the taste. But regardless of these defects, my wife still buys from this stall because it is the only common one found in the malls, and did I mention she’s a taho fanatic?

Soy Yummy

Soy Yummy sells taho (Soya Bean Curd), Soya milk and other soy based stuff. Again, we only tried the taho, which this food review about. They sell hot or cold taho with your choice of umm… plain syrup.

The smooth and soft texture of the taho is perfectly cooked and best of all there is no burnt aftertaste. The syrup is also sweet and plentiful including the small pieces of sago. My wife prefers bigger sago balls, thus, this is her only complaint about the taho being sold by Soy Yummy. By the way, she is also a sago fanatic, she can go on and on about the firmness, stickiness, texture and other stuff about sago. Sadly, the only branch of Soy Yummy that we know of is in Mall of Asia. Thus, my wife suffers through the not-so-good taho of Taho boy most of the time (I no longer buy the taho from Taho Boy because I cannot stand the taste, I only eat taho from Soy Yummy or street vendors)

Conclusion, I’d go for Soy Yummy over Taho Boy at any given day. Besides, their logo looks much cuter anyway. lol :D

    Good day!

    I would just like to react on the Taho Boy review. I am one of those avid fan of this taho selling in the mall from start (I believed the stall in Unimart Greenhillls). I am a fan not because I love taho but because the taho is really good. As you said, the taho from Taho Boy is silky and soft, which should be. No aftertaste or dryness of the throat after you eat it. The not so sweet syrup… Well I usually adjust it by requesting half spoonful less. For the 100-nth time that i ate and given this taho to friends, workmates and family members, we all love it. Ive only experienced a few with the burnt taste you are saying. But not from the taho but from the syrup or from the sago. But overall still tasted great.

    Thanks.
