Food Trip: Taho

We don't really need to go very far for our latest food trip adventure. That is simply because our featured food is a common sight in the streets of the Philippines. It is none other than -the taho.
Classic Taho
Melon Taho
Taho is a popular Filipino snack that is made from fresh silken tofu, mixed with arnibal (brown sugar syrup), and sago pearls. Taho is usually peddled by a magtataho (taho vendor) early in the morning up until "supplies lasts." You would usually hear the magtataho yell "Tahoooooooo!"  as he go around your neighborhood. The taho is traditionally served warm, although some would prefer it cold. If you're planning to avail one, I highly recommend that you buy early in the morning for guaranteed freshness.

He's the magtataho in our subdivision. 
the silken tofu
the sago and the arnibal.
make sure you mix the ingredients well.
Throughout time, Filipino creativity and their love for taho led to new flavors popping out in the market. I have seen and tasted ube taho, cookies and cream taho, cheese taho, buko-pandan taho and grape taho. However, in some places in the country like Benguet for example, the strawberry farms of the province allowed the fresh supply of strawberry taho for the daily consumption of the locals of the province. I have yet to see if Davao could produce a Durian taho, or mango taho from Guimaras.

Gotta love taho!
As proven throughout time taho would forever be part of the Filipino culture.
