Not your traditional beancurd
Overall Score 
Judging by the long queues at all the outlets, it's safe to say that a lot of people like Lao Ban. Like many other people out there, I enjoy eating Lao Ban Soya Beancurd because it's sweet and refreshing. It makes a good dessert to enjoy after a meal or on sweltering hot days.

However, I think that this dessert can't be compared to the traditional soya beancurd. It shouldn't even be called soya beancurd; it reminds me more of pudding or jelly. Traditional soya beancurd is much softer and smoother, and the taste of the beans is much stronger. Lao Ban's beancurd tastes more processed and too artificially sweet.

I very much prefer the traditional soya beancurd, which is tastier and cheaper. I don't mind having Lao Ban soya beancurd as a dessert on its own, but I think it shouldn't bank on the name of soya beancurd and mislead people from the traditional soya beancurd.
