I have eaten many smelly tofu hot pot and really like them but this is different. When we were in 淡水鎮 DanShui Night Market, we decided to try this 麻辣臭豆腐 Mala Smelly Tofu. As I am a very fussy food eater, we decided to order just one bowl of house special. So what did we think about it? This is one of the best Mala Smelly Tofu we have tasted, even my partner who is a Taiwanese agrees with my point of view. At time we will still miss this Special Mala Smelly Tofu.
We ordered the house special. It comes with lean pork, pork ball, duck blood, cabbage, straw mushroom and of course the smelly tofu in Mala broth served in a claypot. The Mala broth is not too spicy but just nice on the tongue, the duck blood have a very smooth texture and the smelly tofu comes with the right pungent taste that goes well with the Mala broth.
Apparently we found on the internet there are few more franchise shops around northern Taiwan but not any in the southern part.
