And who should we bump into as we stepped out of our hotel on our 2nd day in Boracay for a date with the sun, the sea and the sand? The magtataho vendor, that’s who!!! Never mind if we just had a hearty breakfast. We had to have some taho! I didn’t want to risk missing the opportunity to have taho the way I had it as a child…fresh from the buckets of a vendor. Hee hee. *wink*
Taho, if you should consult Wikipedia, ” is a Philippine snack food made of fresh soft/silken tofu, arnibal (brown sugar and vanilla syrup), and pearl sago (similar to pearl tapioca).”
Meet Mr. Taho Vendor…
First, he scoops some of the silken tofu into a cup…
Then, tapioca pearls and caramel are added to the silken tofu.
I easily forgot that a cup of taho was worth Php 25.00. It wasn’t as easy, however, forgetting bikini-clad girls and shirtless boys who didn’t seem to get rid of chest acne. Hee hee. Anyway, my daughter loved her taho and wanted to have some again the very next day. But we had to pass. :)
That’s another comfort food just ticked-off my “must eat” list. ;)
