Stinky tofu or Chou tofu is a fermented tofu dish which has a very strong odor. It smells like stinky drain. No joke. I have always wondered how it tastes like when I was dating walking with hubby in Steven’s corner pasar malam. From the car park we could already smelt it. It was so smelly, like rubbish water. We have to pinch nose while passing thru the stall.
I am more adventurous than hubby. I wanted to try. But he said if I want to eat, I go home myself. Sad, never have the chance to try. Yesterday, after visiting mom, sis and I went to see a master coz sis wants to get “fu- yellow or green paper with some holy words for protection” for her new semi-d house. I followed. I waited for her and I also asked about my son’s sleepless night. I’ll blog about this next time.
After the session, we went to a near by pasar malam. We bought some tofu fa, fried carrot cake, fried la-la and stinky tofu for dinner. I hope people won’t mistaken our car as a rubbish collector’s car.
Arrival home, brother, father, SIL commented, what’s that smell?
Errr…Chou tofu. Try la. Father smelt it and jumped up, he said NO WAY! Haha…but brother tried it.
It was packed 4 pieces in a box. Looks like fried tofu, served with a chili sauce and very sour Kimchi. Eeeeeeuuu…taste a little tofu and a little drain-y but the kimchi sort of rebalance the smell and taste. After makan, the mouth still smelt like that, yuck! I had to brush my teeth to get rid of the smell.
It was not all that nice but don’t mind trying a nicer one. Perhaps, the one we bought wasn't nice enough. I am still open for trying.
