This is not one of those Taiwanese street foods that simply has an odd name, stinky tofu really does stink. However, once you get past the initial assault on your sense of smell, this is an experience that every tourist must try at least once. But with so many street food vendors throughout Taiwan, where is the best place to try it for the first time?
Also known as Dai’s House of Unique Stink, this is perhaps the most famous and definitely the stinkiest place on this list. For a true stinky tofu experience then you have to do it like a local, and no shop, stall, or vendor comes close to topping this place. In fact, the tofu is so stinky that well known Travel Channel food freak Andrew Zimmern couldn’t stomach it.
The greatest thing about this place though is not the fact that it beat a Bizarre Food eater but the variety of options on the menu. Often at stinky tofu vendors, you get one or two options, but here at Dai’s, there’s a whole menu to choose from.
