Shenkeng Stinky Tofu Street is a rural township in southern New Taipei City (Taipei County), and it literately means a deep tunnel. This place is famous for its tofu gourmets because the best tofu is made here and the restaurants here use a distinctive cooking method.


Taiwanese people love “Shenkeng Old Street” for its tofu gourmet, snacks, and popsicles. This place has all different kinds of tofu such as regular tofu, stinky tofu, dessert tofu, fried stinky tofu, BBQ stinky tofu, tofu cheese, tofu cake, sweet tofu drink, dried tofu, and tofu ice cream.

The tofu smell will fills the whole area and you can smell it from a distance away from the street. This street have a lot of character in it. Try a few things here, tofu ice cream, duck's blood, sweet dessert with assorted dumpling, of course, smelly tofu. Ask them to fry the smelly tofu a little more crispy.. They wouldnt otherwise.. Enjoy!
