Stinky tofu is known as “the stronger the smell, the tastier the results.” And while many people are put off by the smell, those who take the plunge are usually won over by this distinctively yummy treat.
Stinky tofu is made of large squares of fermented tofu fried in oil and then cut into four smaller pieces and served with a garnish of pickled cabbage. The crispy skin of the tofu and the soft inside is the best parts of this dish’s charm.
There are many different varieties of stinky tofu-like braised, barbecued, steamed, stewed, and deep-fried. Which one is your favorite?
