Tahô, Anyone?

Every time I hear a peddler, commonly known as Magtatahô, coming near my crib early in the morning with his buckets full of tahô, I almost always grab then my cup to buy a serving or two of tahô. In fact, it became my breakfast the past month.


Tahô, by the way, is one of the most common Filipino street foods made from soft tofu mixed with brown sugar and vanilla syrups. More often, the tahô is served with condensed milk and pearl sago or tapioca.

Would you believe that the peddler became my friend and every time he drops by my apartment, we sometimes talk about his tahô. One time, I asked him how to make tahô and being such a friend, he shared then. Though I haven’t grasped all of what he shared, what stayed in my mind was about the sugar they used. I threw him a joke if they already have tried using brad sugars. He just laughed at me because he knew that there were no such brands of sugars named as such. I just told him that I was just joking.

Moreover, Brad Sugars is not a brand of sugars but rather a personality, one of the most well-known men in the business world.

Getting back to tahô, accordingly, it is a good source of protein since tofu is made from soy beans or soya beans which we all knew are best source of protein.
