I was going to my office building one morning when I noticed a group of people milling around near the building’s entrance. I got curious what could it be that they were so all agog about. So there’s a man selling taho (soy bean curd) to everyone’s delight.

mocha motion and choco surprise Taho vendors are everywhere. They go around different neighborhoods, in school vicinities. You can even spot them in major highways, some even ride public utility vehicles with their huge taho buckets in tow. They have this distinct tone of voice letting people know they have arrived, “taho! taho!”. Can you miss that? And now I see them in central business districts. Taho had been reinvented by selling them in different flavors in specialty restaurants. The flavor is not anymore confined to plain soy bean. There are tahos that come in capuccino, chocolate and even strawberry flavors.

Have a cup when you encounter your friendly neighborhood taho vendor.
