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!

If you like tofu, this is the right place to eat tofu. We tasted the texture of tofu here were more soft and delicious than stinky tofu in Chiufen/Liouhe/Ximending. Fried stinky tofu and BBQ tofu are the best choice. Ice cream tofu is weird, maybe better to drink soya milk. We found sellers of taro balls ice (known as O-YI... More

The street is newly renovated. Many shops for souvenir items such as cake, snack and candy, and they are free to try. There are places for food too. Some of the must try items are stinky tofu, tufu ice-cream, and BBQ tofu. The street is not too long and not too short. If you want to try many items, 1... More

This street was recently renovated to look, well, more traditional. The shop facades have all been given a face lift, and it's even more stunning than before. There is a character in the street, the smells of different things cooking. Restaurants which offer dishes for next to nothing, all of them tastier than the next. Go to Chen Jia Tofu... More

This street has over 10 restaurants catering tofu dishes. There is also tofu ice cream. Aside from tofu, you see gadgets, souvenirs and toys from the 1950s. Before arriving the street, you'll see houses over 100 years old. There is an automated parking building and a supermarket called Chuan Lien where you can park for free when you make a... More

Nice little street but the down side is that the front portion of the street is under renovation and some of the shops are closed! Famous for their braised and smelly toufu, it is definitely THE PLACE for toufu lovers. There are also a few novelty shops for travelers who would like to purchase some souvenirs for their loved ones.... More

If you like tofu and I mean if you really like tofu, it is the place to go. Stinky tofu is dressed up really well and in ways you've not seen before. The other shops have very diversified forms of tofu prepared according to their own recipes handed down through time. The area is also a fun area to walk... More
