Taiwan Stinky Tofu has a strong odor from its fermented based recipe and it attracts anyone along the street to have a taste on it. Also known as Chou Dofu in Chinese, this is one of the world most unusual food found alive and most of the people can’t accept the taste.
I had Stinky Tofu from Malaysia Night Market before. I can accept the strong acrid odor from the fermented tofu but not the way on how they prepare it with the ‘dark & old’ oil.
We ventured into the middle of Shilin Night Market street and found lot’s of people queuing in front of the stall name Good Fragrant Fried Stinky Tofu (香炸臭豆腐).
The stall was just direct opposite Fuzhou Black Pepper Bun stall and recommended by our Shilin Homestay owner 🙂
Chinese Stinky Tofu
Stinky Tofu in boiling mode (on top of golden colour oil) and it took around 15-20 minutes before the chef distribute it to the fans.
The chef looks cool and young so don’t be surprise to see lots of girl queuing up buy the Stinky Tofu.
My compliments to the chef who has a dedicated heart in preparing the Stinky Tofu with fast hands.
Definitely worth for a wait and for the price of NTD45 per plate 🙂
The Stinky Tofu looks different from what you had before, right?
I ranked it one the best I had ever so far with the crusty bite and chew with the strong but acceptable acrid odor.
You can order spicy one and dip the Stinky Tofu into chili sauce with vegetable to reduce the odor.
Definitely it is a ‘must try’ snack in Shilin Night Market and even for those who hates Stinky Tofu 😉
