Another street food classic, stinky tofu says everything that it is.
It indeed has a stench that may turn a hungry person off. The rancid smell is a result of a mixture of fermented milk, fish and meat that can last up to a few months. The taste of stinky tofu is way better than the odor it gives out.
Deep fried until it’s perfectly crunchy, this is best eaten with sweet, chili sauce. Enjoy a good filling snack by having it alongside with a bowl of piping hot noodles and a refreshing glass of fruit drink that a lot of food stalls offer.
