Stinky Tofu 臭豆腐

They say that it tastes better than it smells like. Well to be honest it really didn't smell that bad, but don't take my word at face value. You see I am a Filipino and many of the food that I am accustomed to has a near resemblance to the Chinese culture. 

Let me give you an idea of what is it that you get with a stinky tofu. Well for starters you get two blocks of tofu (for this grilled version) that was carefully marinated in a sauce that has been fermenting for about two weeks, which is then skewered onto two sticks. The tofu is then slightly cut in the middle to create a crevice for some fermented cabbage and is then 

Stinky tofu actually is one of Taiwan's favorite street snack so be sure not to miss it whenever you get a chance to visit the country. I suggest start with the ones that I had skewered, after that you can move on to a higher challenge with a different kind of stinky tofu preparation. 



  1. Nooooooooooo I wouldn't be caught dead within 10 meters radius from it, hahaha! Di ko kaya ang stink. When I still lived in China, there was a vendor who sold this a block away from my condo. Hay naku, I would hold my breath and RUN past it every time I go home. Never got close enough to taste it, hihihi.
