We went to some of the most highly rated Taiwan restaurants, some ‘must-see’ tourist places in Taipei, some of the best restaurants in Taipei and also made the mistake of entering some not so great dives.

Yu’s Almond Tofu Taiwan 于記杏仁豆腐 is known for their Almond Milk Desserts. All of Taiwan’s delicacies and must try items. It is located just around the corner from our hotel CityInn Hotel Plus Ximending 新驛旅店西門捷運店. They are famous for their almond tofu, almond shaved ice and almond puff pastries. We went back several times during our stay in Taiwan. Actually we went back everyday. It was just that good.

The shop itself isn’t too big. But it is clean and brightly light. There are several Yu’s Almond Tofu Taiwan locations throughout Taipei, so I’m sure you will be able to locate one nearby. Or you can always visit their website: http://www.yustofu.com.tw.

Almond Tofu 杏仁豆腐 48NT: Store famous dessert. Almond tofu served chill with a packet of almond milk. The tofu is not like soft tofu pudding where it breaks aparts easily. There is rather dense, but impeccably smooth and silky. It is neither too sweet nor too bland. Everything about this almond tofu is incredibly delicious.

Almond Milk with Grass Jelly 仙草杏仁汁 55NT: Silky and creamy almond milk. No grits. Just smooth and rich. Grass jelly adds texture and makes this drink perfectly refreshing.

 

Yus Almond Tofu

Hot Traditional Almond Tofu 熱杏仁豆腐 65 NT: Now this is not like the one above. This is like a soupy bowl of hot almond milk with almond tofu. The tofu has a bit of bite, but it is smooth. There are crushed almonds cooked inside the soup.

 

Whether you chose to nourish yourself with a bowl of cold almond tofu, a cup of almond milk, or even their traditional hot almond tofu soup. It is all naturally scented and gentle on your stomach. We’re so glad we bought some to bring home as ‘souvenirs’. Once you’re well fed, head over to Ximending   for some shopping and more eating.
