The shopping mall Shinjuku Mylord, which is part of the Shinjuku Station complex, is now home to the Sao Dou Hua, a popular Taiwanese cafe that serves sweet tofu-based deserts called Douhua. The shop has been so popular ever since it has opened that you'll often see long lines to get in.

Taiwanese Traditional Sweets

These desserts are made from a kind of very soft tofu. The tofu itself isn't sweetened but the toppings and syrup are. As for toppings, you'll often find tapioca, sweet beans and fruit. The sweetness of the toppings balances out perfectly the plain taste of the tofu. Overall, It's often considered a nutritious, healthy dessert.

What We Tried At Sao Dou Hua

Mango Watermelon (¥1,380)
The Mango Watermelon douhua is a popular seasonal item.

Apparently, the fruits and other ingredients are for the most part imported directly from Taiwan, so you really get an authentic taste.

The tofu is made in-house from scratch every day.

Aside from the fruits, there is some cream and condensed sweetened milk, tapioca pearls, and sherbert.

The tofu has such a nice smooth texture and because it isn't sweet, you can taste the natural flavour of the soybeans.

Many Kinds Of Fruit

There are many kinds of fresh fruit toppings you can try.

This strawberry one was particularly good. The sourness of the fruits combined with the sweetness of the liquid, and the soy taste of the tofu was spot on.

Taiwanese Savoury Dishes Are Available Too!

If you want to eat something savoury, try their minced pork rice or tantanmen! They are both specialties from Taiwan and are very popular in Japan right now.
