You have an ingredient called Konnyaku Bean Paste. What is it and where can I buy it in Singapore?

Thanks & Regards

Just to double check - is this similar to the konnyaku used in Japanese Yong Tau Fu. When do you add this in? I hope I can find this in the Cold Storage at VivoCity/Parkway Parade/Leisure Park.

Also, you have bean paste as another ingredient - is this taucheo?

Thanks & Regards
