Stinky Tofu at Zhengyang Pedestrian Street (Opposite Zheng Yang Inn) @ Guilin City [China]

With a ton of shops / stalls lining up zhengyang pedestrian street and its side alleys, i was amazed by my unexpected hawk-eye vision to spot the above; stinky tofu!! Okay, i lied; my nose was the one that picked up its unique, irresistible aroma! 

Despite dad's initial resistance, i managed to persuade him that my stomach was still hungry and i am only ordering the smallest portion possible. Yipppppeeee!

The smell wasn't bad and i was fidgeting nonstop in anticipation of what i have missed out for a long time! I actually asked to have the smelly tofu without any sauce and condiment but the lady advised against my request as the taste would be bland. 

Point taken and since i am going to add, might as well give me everything, including the chilli! 

At 5 RMB, the serving was decent for one person and as it was rather chilly that night, the freshly fried smelly tofu was a definite warm comfort for the tummy. The crust (crispy exterior skin) was a visual turn off given its resemblance to snake skin but other than that, the pungency wasn't overwhelming and i thought it was tasty, with credits given to the condiments and sauces. 

Were they as good as the ones from Shenkeng (Taiwan)? No way!
