anyone know where I might be able to either make my own preparation (grilled, deep-fried, steamed, briased) or, a good place to find some already stinky tofu? If I was truly going to make my own stinky tofu I'm sure it would take at least a month or so, so actually, I am looking for a place where I can by pre-made stinky tofu, or, raw stinky tofu? specifically I'm in New York City but I'd appreciate any general tips about handling, prep and recipes.
Gu Shine Chinese Restaurant in Flushing has very good stinky tofu (chou tofu). Now, I've never had it in Taiwan, so I'm certainly not a connoisseur. Gu Shine's food is discussed on posts in the Manhattan board.
Also, it's honorable to want to make your own stinky tofu but do you really think you can withstand the smell once you open the stuff up?
