Stinky tofu: The dish like 'smelly feet'

While travelling in Taiwan, Carmen Roberts tries a plate of street food called stinky tofu.

The fermented tofu has a strong odour and is usually sold at night markets or roadside stands as a snack.

The story of the dish is that it was discovered by accident when a tofu seller had so much of the food left over, he popped it in a jar for a few days and came back to try it after it had fermented.

But does it taste as bad as some say it smells?
