Pasar malam, or weekly night markets in Malaysia often offers unique dishes you can’t find at any other settings. This is especially true when it comes to stinky tofu, as so far I have yet to see any stinky tofu stalls outside pasar malam setting.
And when it comes to this smelly delicacy, there are several different variations to choose from, all of which involves deep frying a particular stinky version of tofu and served piping hot with some condiments.
However, of all these, Black Tofu at SS2 is perhaps one of the more unique version out there. In this version, the tofu is pre-cut into smaller chunks before being deep fried instead of after, and then being served with some sort of soup, crispy bits, spring onions, and best of all – sambal!
As with most stinky tofu in Malaysia, this too isn’t particularly smelly, perhaps done so to cater more to our local taste. Nonetheless, black tofu carries a more complex taste profile and one that has more of a kick to it with the inclusion of sambal.
Each portion is priced at RM 7, so while they’re not cheap, it is less pricey than the equivalent at Hong Cha, which I find slightly less inferior than this one.
