: “Lao Ban” Soya Beancurd began in in 2007 as a hawker stall in Old Airport Food Centre. The chilled beancurd storm – which Lao Ban is famous for – really took off in 2009, when back then “Lao Ban”, the creator our chilled beancurd, came up with the idea for a soy dessert that was more pudding-like in consistency, as compared to the traditional soy beancurd dessert that was served in sugar syrup.
The beancurd pudding was a runaway hit, and became a food fad that exploded all over Singapore – one that has started to become a staple dessert option today in the minds of Singaporeans when it comes to the idea of local desserts.
Since then, we have grown from a humble small shop selling desserts, to one of the leading chains for soya bean food & beverages in Singapore today. With more than 16 outlets located islandwide, Lao Ban offers a variety of soya bean drinks and snacks. This is a story of a humble traditional dessert, that with some creativity added in, has grown to be part of Singaporean’s food culture.
