The first thing that hits you from this dish is the pungent smell that can instantly wake you up. The tofu skin is crispy on the outside while still being soft and moist on the inside. The tofu has a slightly salty flavour with a mild sweet and tangy undertone. This dish is such an acquired taste that it is honestly hard to describe the actual flavour of it. People would often compare the taste of it to smooth aged cheese. It is highly recommend to have this dish fresh out of the wok to enjoy the crispiness of the tofu to the fullest.
