taho for breakfast

Whenever I hear the street peddler shout “taho” every morning I make a mental note to get up earlier the next day so I can buy me a cup or two. So today I was prepared. I was out the door as soon as I heard manong shout. This old Pinoy food reminds me so much of my childhood as I used to eat these with my siblings when I was a little girl. My perfect part is chewing on the gooey pearls and the silken tofu. I usually do not like much arnibal or sweetener as my tummy has low tolerance for it in the morning.

According to Wikipedia “taho is a Philippine snack food made from fresh soft/silken tofu , arnibal {sweetener and flavoring}, and sago pearl { similar to tapioca pearls} . This staple comfort food is a signature sweet and taho peddlers can be found all over the country. The Indonesian and Malaysian equivalent of this snack is tauhue .”

Many Filipinos love to have taho for breakfast and I am no exception. I cannot wait for my next taho morning! It is also a perfect companion as I research about the awesome gibson super 400 from musicians friend! 🙂
