South Bay: Soyful Desserts

My sister came home one day singing the praises of a pearl tea place that combines pearl tea with tofu desserts.  My chance to check it out came a lot sooner than expected.  T called over the weekend saying that VN wanted to meet Soyful.

Soyful is located in the still mostly uninhabited part of the Grand Century complex.  It is, for lack of a better word, essentially a counter:

There are a handful of tables set up outside, but most people grab their drinks to go.  Luckily, a table cleared up while we were deciding what to order, so we snatched it up real quick.

T and VN both got the tofu pudding, basil seeds, and pandan jelly:

My sister got the creamy milk tea with Japanese pudding:

The milk tea was borderline too milky, but the silkiness of the pudding more than made up for it.

I contemplated getting one of the flavored soy milks, but in the end, I wanted something refreshing, so I ordered the Lily's Lychee with lychee jelly:

I asked for regular sweetness and boy, was it sweet.  Lesson learned.

A bit out of the way for me, but I wouldn't mind going back again.  That Japanese pudding was freakin' good.

My Peru trip is now just around the corner.  My sister and I will be flying out Monday morning.  (I still can't believe I'm going...probably because I haven't started packing yet.)  So this will be my last post before I return.

If in the next two weeks you hear a news story about an Asian girl at the top of Huayna Picchu demanding a helicopter lift off the mountain, that would be me.  Just giving you a heads up.

See you all in July!
