For the fan of stinky tofu, there are a couple of stalls offering this dish in one of the bigger pasar malam in Klang Valley – at SS2 every Monday evenings. Let’s look at the stall by the name of Hong Cha, or “red tea” stinky tofu.

Usually situated closer to SS2 McDonald’s, this stall offers a single type of stinky tofu for RM 10 that comes in a paper container. The triangle cut tofu comes with a side of pickled radish, sauerkraut, and some dipping sauce.

The single portion came with about two full piece of tofu cut into 8, portion wise it really isn’t a lot, and you could also argue that the asking price of RM 10 is rather high for what is offered. As for taste, I thought it lacked the tell-tale pungent smell that should be a mandatory characteristic of any stinky tofu, perhaps trying to cater to local taste a bit too much.

Additionally, the sauerkraut, or “almost kimchi” on the side was a bit weak too.

comes in paper box, but not stinky enough tho!

If you’re a huge fan of tofu or if this is the first time you’re introduced to stinky tofu, Hong Cha maybe a good point to start. For the true stinky tofu fan though, you will probably be disappointed.

Discuss : KY eats – Hong Cha Stinky Tofu, SS2 Pasar Malam

  1. I tried once – it was all right, nothing like what it smells like but no, it sure did not get me all excited.

  2. to the unsuspecting eater, this might look like innocent tofu – but one bite or one sniff and arrrrghhh! 😀 p.s. hi, sycookies! 😀

  3. KY, try the stinky tofu in cafe in Taiwan and night market found taste better at night market. They sell a lot more than cafes and restaurants maybe. Lot non Asians like it also at the begining ate at a dare but found out not bad at all.

    • vickie: Oh I didn’t know they also sell it at cafes & restaurants, over here it’s only at night markets.

  4. love chow taufu… kepong pasar malam not bad

  5. There is a (or 2, I can’t remember) stinky tofu stall at Kepong Baru pasar malam every Sunday, maybe you can try it out if you haven’t.

  6. Stinky tofu? Noooooooooo!! I can smell the stink from a mile away. There used to be one in my neighbourhood’s pasar malam too….thank god they left (it was very trying to have to walk the pasar malam with that kind of foul smell in the air)! >_<

  7. No thank you very much. I tried stinky tofu in Taiwan and one experience was more than enough 😉
