Stinky Tofu (Pao Cai Chou Dou Fu 泡菜臭豆腐)

Your nose can’t miss this busy street food stall right in the middle of the buzz of the Long Tou Street Food Market (Long Tou Xiao Chi Yi Tiao Jie 龙头路小吃一条街): you can smell the stinky tofu emanating from the shop from a full block away.

People generally either love or hate stinky tofu—there’s almost nobody who feels neutrally about it. Tourists generally fall in the latter category, but maybe you’ll turn out to be the rare tourist who appreciates the complex fermented aromas of this traditional Chinese delicacy.
