Location: Taipei, Taiwan
Eating street food in Taipei was the highlight of our trip. Most of the street food that was had was absolutely delicious. However, the STINKY TOFU that we bought from a street was NOT. From the first day we visited Taipei, we could smell the stink from the stinky tofu wafting down the streets. There’s not mistaking the pungent smell as it obtrusively enters your nostrils.
We had debated the entire trip whether or not we were brave enough to try the fermented tofu. On our last day in Taipei, I succeeded in convincing Kara to try stinky tofu with me! There seem to be a lot of locals who enjoy stinky tofu and consider it a local delicacy. However, our American taste buds did not. It tasted just as bad it smells!!!
Kara does an amazing job explaining what like. If you want to see what it’s like to try stinky tofu on the streets of Taipei check out this VLOG starting around 8:28!
