For anyone who hasn't smelled this boiling cauldron of ass let me paint the picture of the smell the best way I can, 1 part smell of raw sewage, 1 part smell of gym locker, 1 part smell of Body order, 1 part sex panther cologne from Anchorman and something maybe dead or rotting under your house.

I had to man up and eat this **** agin (the second time I've had it) becasue some fellow workers hadn't tried it. What a hot steaming pile of ass this **** is. I have no idea outside of starvation why you would ever want to eat this ****. Once you smell this smell if you are anywhere in the world and get a wisp of this smell you will stop and say "Uhg Stinky Tofu!"

I love tofu. Absolutely love it.

I treat it like some people treat sushi. Love to go to a nice restaurant and sample the tofu. If its done right it's amazing. If its fried and dropped in soy sauce it's really really good.

You know who has REALLY good tofu that would surprise you is Moe's. Most people don't even know that Moe's has tofu but it's unbelievably good for a fast good restaurant. You have to watch those ****ers though. Since most people don't go to Moe's for tofu, they'll cook a small container of tofu when they first open and it's still sitting there at 5:00PM and they'll try to put that **** on your burrito. Make them cook it fresh.

I get Moe's with the tofu every Monday.

Tofu is easily some of the nastiest stuff ever put on the planet.

J, normal Tofu is fine in dishes, I had one of the beast Tofu dishes I have ever had this trip, a corn and crab bisque with Tofu, it was fabulous. If you have never smelled the dish called "stinky tofu" then you have no idea how bad this dish smells! Sewer plants smell better on a 100 degree day.

Fermented tofu stinks like nothing you have ever smelled, I love kimchi and kimchi smells like womans perfume compared to this ****.



Unlike cheese (http://www.finheaven.com/wiki/Cheese), stinky tofu fermentation does not have fixed formula for starter bacteria (http://www.finheaven.com/wiki/Starter_bacteria); wide regional and individual variations exist in manufacture and preparation.

The traditional method for producing stinky tofu is to prepare a brine made from fermented milk (http://www.finheaven.com/wiki/Milk), vegetables, and meat; the brine can also include dried shrimp (http://www.finheaven.com/wiki/Shrimp), amaranth (http://www.finheaven.com/wiki/Amaranth) greens, mustard greens (http://www.finheaven.com/wiki/Brassica_juncea), bamboo shoots (http://www.finheaven.com/wiki/Bamboo_shoots), and Chinese herbs (http://www.finheaven.com/wiki/Chinese_herbs).[1] (http://www.finheaven.com/forums/#cite_note-sznews-0) The brine fermentation can take as long as several months. Although stinky tofu is very popular in East and Southeast Asia, not many households prepare stinky tofu brine at home due to its strong odor, especially in metro-residential areas.

Ahhh...have never heard of this "stinky tofu" before. Just assumed you were talking about tofu in general.

Fermented...can't imagine that. I was a vegan/vegetarian several years ago and would drink this fermented stuff from Whole Foods called "Synergy." It was raw. Smelled and tasted something awful. Designed as a cleansing agent similar to the master cleanse diet. The master cleanse drink taste much better though. You'd take the Synergy and just diet on that for like 10 days to reboot your system.

Stinky fermented tofu though...can't imagine. Where was this?

Taiwan, I'm here till Thursday.

The seafood is fabulous here, fresh. Man, if you ever smell this dish you will be like WTF? I am not lying when I say raw sewage smells better.

The fermentation process is the just retarded, why would you put milk, meat and vegetables in a crock and let them rot only to brine Tofu with it for days then boil the whole thing on high heat so it emanates for a 50yard radius from where you are cooking it.

So why did you go Vegan? I have to say, I was gaining weight due to my travel schedule and not being able to lift 4 to 5 times a week, plus the beer and and and....so I cleansed by eating only steamed vegetables, grilled and steamed fish and chicken, no carbs, very very small red meat (one small steak in two weeks) and drinking only water, coffee and tea, plus my protein shakes and I lost 12 pounds in three weeks and my energy level when way up. Started sleeping better, it was a good thing, I know that's not vegan but that is about as vegan as it will ever get for me lol. The cleansing help me out a lot though.
