Taho is a very popular street food in the country. It is usually sold by tahovendors or hawkers in your street during specific times of the day (usually early mornings).
As we all know, it is made of white bean curd or silken tofu. What makes it more interesting (and delightful to the taste buds) is how it is served as a concoction comprised of caramel syrup and tiny sized tapioca pearls or small sago.

Homemade Taho Recipe
- 330 g extra soft tofu
- 1/2 cup uncooked tapioca pearl (sago)
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup water

- When tofu is warm, top it with cooked tapioca pearl and arnibal. Add more arnibal to sweeten.
