Stinky Tofu


The look on this guy’s face says it all, it really stinks.  Left rotting and fermenting for a period of weeks to several months, stinky tofu emits a smell so foul it can only be matched by the equally noxious flavor.  This dish is popular in parts of southeast asia, especially Hong Kong and Taiwan.  Fortunately, it is uncommon even in Asia, as stinky tofu does not pass most countries’ health regulations.  Wonder why?

    This really stinks. I often smelled it when I was roaming Taiwan’s big night markets. It reeked, but some people say it’s very good. Btw, have you tried drinking their famous snake blood? 🙂
