Kung Wo Tofu Factory closes Kowloon City location after more than 50 years

We say goodbye to another local gem

Kung Wo Tofu Factory, otherwise known as the king of tofu pudding in Hong Kong, has just announced the closure of their Kowloon City location. This Michelin-recommended dessert joint is as authentic as it gets, with a history dating as far back as 1893 when the very first shop was opened by Lok Gong along Canton Road in Mong Kok. Eventually, the Kowloon City shop was sold to the Poon family, and from then on, it became a regular neighbourhood staple for locals and even celebrities. Whether it’s deep-fried tofu or homemade soy milk, and of course, tofu pudding, Kung Wo has managed to keep the shop and its food down to earth throughout the years, serving up bites of consistently good quality.

While we will be sad to see this local gem close its doors towards the end of September this year, those who have yet to try the full tofu experience can head to Kung Wo in Sham Shui Po (which was sold to the So family in 1997) where they’ve recently opened up a new – though, regrettably less inviting – shop right next door. The menu is more extensive here with items extending beyond the usual tofu products to include casual dim sum, fried noodles, and swiss sauce chicken wings. They do delivery and takeaway too, so now you can try out their tofu wonders right at home!
