Lots of new places to try in this thread! Often the doufu isn't as stinky as I wish, but I found one stand that really goes overboard. 臭豆腐世家 in Zuoying, Kaohsiung has a 48 hour fermented variety that leaves the breath reeking. I'm still going back though :)

Hahaha - I feel exactly like you do. Once I got into chou doufu, it wasn't stinky enough. So I switched to the ma-la version which is a bit stinkier. Thanks for the tip, Bookmark - will have to check out that shop the next time I'm in Kaohsiung!

So far, I like the vendor at the entrance of the Raohe St. Night Market the best.

BTW, what used to drive me sick was that herb/drug 薬 induced chicken in boiled broth that you can find in some night markets (it's supposed to be really nutritious for you). Just the smell makes my lips buzz a bit. I used to hate the odor, but after 3 months year, I actually like the smell now - I may want to try it for real, one of these days.

I love it. I took my Korean buddy to a stand once and he said it smelled like his girlfriend's poonanny.
I sat there thinking whether that was a good thing or not.
I still don't know.
