Lamma Island Restaurants: 8 reviews and 9 photos
Other than the pigeon, the other dish is worth a mention here is the famous beancurd (Dou-fa in Cantonese, say Tow-Far) made by an old woman known respectfully as Ah-Por. Ah-Por's beancurd stall is about 10 min away from Yung Shue Wan pier and it's so popular that it's marked by a queue that snakes along the path near the shade of banana trees. Undetered by the free advertisement of greedy customers, Ah-Por also takes the intiative of putting up newspaper clippings of herself on a poster board beside her stall. You won't miss the stall unless you're a bat depending on sonar for dear life.
Favorite Dish: The dofu-fa, without a doubt. The curd was the softest I've tasted in my life. Nothing on the main island or in Singapore comes close to this heavenly soft manna. If you prefer it sweet, you can sprinkle a confetti of red sugar (a specialty of Guangdong) on your dessert. The sugar is found in a tub on every table and plasted on the tub are the Chinese words - "Pls close the tub after you've helped yourself to the sugar, you greedy bastard!" Ok, ok, I made those last 3 words up.
Comparison: least expensive
