Yau Lee Bean Sauce


1A Canal Road East

Nestled in the bustling Canal Street, Yau Lee Bean Sauce has been a top purveyor of fu yu (fermented bean curd) in Hong Kong for nearly 60 years. Yau Lee Bean Sauce first opened in 1960 on Tang Lung Street. Facing rising rents, Yau Lee moved to Canal Street in 2016 and has been there ever since. A hotspot for locals and tourists alike, they can select from a variety of fu yu, spices and seasoning, preserved egg and an array of sauces, all made by hand. Fermented bean curd is often likened to cheese; a savoury and soft spreadable condiment eaten most commonly with vegetables. Yau Lee is considered the experts of fu yu – they use the best soybeans from Canada and natural ingredients to create a variety of types. Yau Lee attracts many customers, from locals who have been coming to the store for many years, to expats and tourists looking for an authentic souvenir to take home – a taste of Hong Kong.
