Chew Chew Chow Tofu (Stinky Tofu) At Taman Connaught Pasar Malam

I went to the famous and longest night market in Kuala Lumpur last Wednesday night and that’s the Taman Connaught Pasar Malam. After visiting the night market here, I felt that Penang’s night market is not that happenings and have less food. Nevertheless, they still rocks as I am a night market fan.

I realized that they do sell the stinky tofu (fermented tofu) here at the night market, which is pretty cool because all the while, I thought these stinky tofu is only available in Hong Kong and China, Kuala Lumpur have them too! At Taman Connaught night market, there’s one famous one which is the Chew Chew Chow Tofu which always has people queuing up for their stinky tofu.

It really smells bad but seeing so many people were in the line, I and my friend joined in too, to find out how stinky they are.

They are tiny fried tofu but with a strong odor. There’s small little pieces and also big pieces of tofus.

Well, just to try out, we bought 4 little pieces. It’s not tofu itself only, but with some sweet sauce and a little bit picked vegetable on top.

So how’s the taste? Just a little crispy thingy, tasted good, but super not healthy cause it’s deep fried and the oil reuse and reuse again. The odor didn’t get that strong after that, perhaps inhaling too much of them. Somehow, I felt that’s it’s not so same as the one I had in Hong Kong few years back, the odor were stronger. Anyway, I am going to Hong Kong in a few weeks time, and I am going to check it out again. =D

My friends Arron and Carmen have a try on it too, and they told me that it’s nothing special, but still tasted not bad or ok-good.

So what do you think? Do you like stinky tofu?
