It is always best to have street food as dinner when you are feeling still full after the lunch. Along our way to supermarket, there was a lot of street food.
Street Food 1: Chou Tofu aka ‘Stinky Tofu’
‘Stinky ToFu’ is quite similar to the cheese. The ToFu has been fermented for months to produce the overpowering pungent odour and taste; so do those old cheeses.
This is the vendor I used to visit since my last visit 2 years ago. He was still having his business at the same spot near 福民文具批发市场 Fu-Min Stationary Wholesale Centre. He was preparing my order. The ToFu were deep fried before dipping them into the soup-liked sauce and brushed with spicy sauce. After that, the ToFus were loaded with abundant of pickles and coriander.
If I am not mistaken, it was about 8 to 10 pieces of ToFu priced only at RMB 4.
I personally dislike coriander. But once it matched with this ToFu, they become a perfect match! Sluuurrrpp! The ToFus smelled great and tasted Yummy too. It was really irresistible and I returned for more the next few days.
Besides that, I must say, the stinky Tofu here is totally different (taste) from what we used to get from any Night Market in KL. I have tried the one from the famous night market in KL, Yucks. And definitely not as good as this one.
Street Food 2: Fish Ball @ 7-11
7-11, Seven-Eleven stores in Shen Zhen are unlike those in Malaysia. They have Curry Fish Balls, sausages, buns, meat balls…. a variety of choices.
Street Food 3: 烤羊肉串
This was the soft and tender roasted lamb stick. Sprinkled with the fragrant mixed chili powders gave you the acceptable spiciness. For a greater spicy level, just ask them to dust up more chili powders.
Remember I wrote in previous post that there is the perfect place selling Portuguese Egg Tarts?! Well, I am sure you can’t imagine why they have such wonderful yummylicious egg tarts but we don’t have it here!
The Famous Blueberry Portuguese Egg Tarts from KFC this season!!!
The hot piping egg custard centre in the crème-brulee-liked was silky smooth. The pastry shell was buttery and fragrant. Additional with a spoonful of blueberry gave its name — Blueberry Portuguese Egg Tarts. Honestly speaking, this was the best Portuguese Egg Tarts I ever had. I had 3 in a row. The BEST the BEST the BEST!!! My friend, Jimmy who went to Shanghai last CNY got their Yam Egg Tarts. Since then, he kept promoting that China KFC’s egg tart is a Must to try. Sadly, it was not the Yam Season during my trip. i didn’t get to try the Yam Egg Tarts.
Besides serving hot, you can try to refrigerate the egg tarts for about 5.5 hours. It turns differently. I had 2 kept in the fridge and treated them as my breakfast. My Oh My! They were completely different. They changed into creamy-liked egg custard. Just like those creams in the cream puff.
And, I da-bao-ed a dozen of egg tarts and had them flied back (to KL) with me for my family. They loved them too!
