Da Tie Tofu Pudding, located on the corner of Henan Road and Fuxing Road, is a famous dessert store. It is open from 10 in the morning to 10 at night, and offers a lot of different dessert. The prices at this popular shop are really moderate, too. We went there a few days ago; let us tell you about our experience.

When you enter the store, you will notice that there are some beautiful pictures on the wall. If you look closely, you will notice that there is some writing on these pictures. From the writing on these pictures, you will find out that the owner of store was not a dessert maker originally, but a blacksmith – hence the name, “Da Tie” or “Blacksmith.” We were very surprised at that. The owner of Da Tie has a really good business attitude. He insists that his food must be delicious. At Da Tie, they have seats both outside and inside. It was hot that day, so we chose outside seats.
There are only two people working at Da Tie Tofu Pudding. One is the cashier; the other waits on customers. There were not very many people there when we got there, so we got our desserts without waiting too long. The service was friendly; the workers kept smiling at us.
At Da Tie, they offer lots of toppings for your dessert. They have red beans, peanuts, tapioca pearls, and mung beans. This time we chose red beans, peanuts, and tapioca pearls with brown sugar water. It was super delicious. However, if you discover that you don’t like your topping, you can exchange your pudding for a new one – for free!
There is something special about Da Tie. The first time customers come to Da Tie, the cashier will give them a “VIP” card with one stamp on it. Then each time they come back, they will get another stamp. When their card is full, they will get a free dessert!
We highly recommend this dessert store. It’s very cheap, and we like the relaxing atmosphere. Da Tie Tofu Pudding offers a variety of delicious desserts, and we look forward to enjoying all of them. Visit Da Tie soon, and don’t forget to pick up your VIP card!
