If you crave the stinkiest stinky vomit inducing stink stinkiest experience near Taipei, this is the place for you. A meander along the market watching loving couples share this stinkiest of Taiwanese delicacies before a kiss and embrace in the stink cloud of stinky tofu stalls is a truly stinky stomach churning experience. Definitely one not to miss out on... More

First, the architecture of old Taiwanese style building along the street was nice. Second, variety of tofu foods to try and the taste was really nice. The only setback was the distance from Taipei city. Otherwise, it was similar to any night market in Taipei.

For the food, you can find many cooking style of Tofu in there, even ice-cream. You must try this, & you never found the similar taste in the world famous ice-cream brand. I recommend you to visit there at night (within 6:30pm – 8:00pm). Because you can have the tofu food, and take the photos of night scene together. The... More

Tofu in every conceivable form! Great eats and experimentation - even for vegans. Tofu for dessert - what a concept.

If you like tofu of all kinds, then this is the place to go! We tried a few tofu dishes which were quite tasty. I also bought tofu ice cream and pudding, which were quite delicious! Strangely enough, another item not to be missed is the peanut cluster candy that I bought from a shop along the street. It's not... More

This is an interesting spot for locals and foreign visitors. It is mainly famous for various tofu dishes, but in addition, what attracts me most is the smell of old time buildings, wood or brick alike, though renovated. I also enjoy being pushed in crowds of people passing by. Some unique stores sell old-time snacks or creative commercial items. Whatever... More

Shenkeng Street is a great old street that has been recently refurbished. There are many shops selling all kinds of food and there are always free samples. They are famous for their tofu and sell a variety of tofu - try the tofu ice cream!
