For me, the best beancurd is this particularly popular one found in Selegie, just opposite Wilkie Edge, and housed in a rustic 2-storey shophouse.
They serve not only classic beancurd in syrup, but also beancurd in soy bean milk, which is how I prefer to take it.
Besides beancurd, they have a delectable range of pastries ranging from fried doughsticks to egg tarts to butterflies (fried dough that is shaped somewhat like a butterfly). Whichever way you take it, they are all very good.

|Butterfly Dough Fritters|
The butterfly dough fritters had a fragrant aroma to it, and the dough is not too thick or too flour tasting, which makes this easy to consume. The nice sesame seed coating just give it that slight crunchy texture to go with the delicious softness of the dough.

It is a simple way to consume a snack or breakfast, and very inexpensive as well, considering how well known this stall is. You will see countless executives and working folks packing this place during lunchtime and coffee breaks.
They even have an air con space on the 2nd floor for those who are unwilling to brave the heat in the alfresco sitting area downstairs. If you enjoy beancurd, and have never patronised this place before, go give it a try.
As far as Singapore desserts go, Rochor Original Beancurd reigns pretty supreme.
