Lau Hu Dong Yi Ju is a Chinese restaurant located in Roppongi Hills!! It is a pretty small restaurant, though it apparently seats 60, and has an open bar & kitchen.

杏仁豆腐 (Annin Tofu) is a popular dessert in Japan! You can find it in almost any Chinese restaurant. Surprisingly, this yummy dessert does not actually contain any almonds, but is made from apricot kernels (杏仁)!! It is called "tofu" because of it's soft gelatin consistency, although it is also known as a jelly or pudding. It is always decorated with some goji berries.
Sadly, most Chinese restaurants in Japan use instant packs to make their Annin Tofu, which makes them all taste the same (bland artificial flavour, hard 寒天 (kanten) -like texture). HOWEVER...very rarely you will come across the authentic deal...just like in this restaurant, Lau Hu Dong Yi Ju!! The Annin Tofu here was THE BEST one I have ever eaten in my life (so far)!! It is more like pudding than jelly or tofu, and bursts with a creamy 杏仁 flavour!
If the restaurant promoted their dessert more, I'm sure it will be a popular item. It's a good thing I happened to order it that night! Can't wait to try their other desserts and see if it is exceptionally yummy!
