Guess you didn't like it, Joe. :raspberry:

Actually the doufu itself dosen't have much flavor, it's the kimchee and sauces that flavor it...

Chou Do-Fu (stinky Tofu)

Had a friend from UK whose mouth watered every time she smelt it. Guess it's an acquired taste, and smell!
I really don't mind the stuff. It's palatable, IMHO.
I like the tofu ru more though. Ya know, the stuff in a jar that tastes just like blue cheese. YUM! Rice porridge, tofuru, and egg...what a breakie combo.

Sure, you've smelt it on the streets...but have you actually tried it? It's not too bad. It dosen't really stink once you get away from the d00d frying it. Mixed with kimchee (pao cai) it's not bad--a bit spicey...just plug your nose when you order.

I don't know how they guy frying it can stand there all evening breathing the oder...

The deep fried stuff is fairly good. After all, you can deep fry anything and it all tastes the same. The ma-la variety is another story. That stuff tastes just as wretched as it smells.

Alien,
Think there's any hope of using toufuru to replace bleu cheese in recipes or on salads?

Dunno Terry. You could try it sometime and let us know! [img]images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]
On second thought...tofu in a salad?

I can bear the smell of it walking past a chou tofu joint only if I don't have a hangover. If I do have one, makes feel like throwing up. Damned places should have biohazard warnings within 100 meters of them.
How can something akin to the smell of rotting corpses make your mouth water?

Deep fried Chou doufu is great. BBQd can be even better. I really don't understand people who never try it.

The first couple of times that I walked past a chou doufu stand I checked the bottom of my shoes thinking that I had stepped in a random stray dog pile o' poo. Anything that smells like dog sh!t doesn't interest me since at least 70% of the taste is the smell. That's why food sucks when you have a cold.
