ShenZhen09 Day 3 Dinner: Street Food + KFC Blueberry Egg Tarts

Continue from ShenZhen09 Day 3 Brunch: Dim Sum @ 广食访

It is always best to have street food as dinner when you are feeling still full after the lunch. Along our way to supermarket, there was a lot of street food.

Street Food 1: Chou Tofu aka ‘Stinky Tofu’

‘Stinky ToFu’ is quite similar to the cheese. The ToFu has been fermented for months to produce the overpowering pungent odour and taste; so do those old cheeses.



This is the vendor I used to visit since my last visit 2 years ago. He was still having his business at the same spot near 福民文具批发市场 Fu-Min Stationary Wholesale Centre. He was preparing my order. The ToFu were deep fried before dipping them into the soup-liked sauce and brushed with spicy sauce. After that, the ToFus were loaded with abundant of pickles and coriander.



If I am not mistaken, it was about 8 to 10 pieces of ToFu priced only at RMB 4.



I personally dislike coriander. But once it matched with this ToFu, they become a perfect match! Sluuurrrpp! The ToFus smelled great and tasted Yummy too. It was really irresistible and I returned for more the next few days.

Besides that, I must say, the stinky Tofu here is totally different (taste) from what we used to get from any Night Market in KL. I have tried the one from the famous night market in KL, Yucks. And definitely not as good as this one.

Street Food 2: Fish Ball @ 7-11



7-11, Seven-Eleven stores in Shen Zhen are unlike those in Malaysia. They have Curry Fish Balls, sausages, buns, meat balls…. a variety of choices.

Street Food 3: 烤羊肉串



This was the soft and tender roasted lamb stick. Sprinkled with the fragrant mixed chili powders gave you the acceptable spiciness. For a greater spicy level, just ask them to dust up more chili powders.

Remember I wrote in previous post that there is the perfect place selling Portuguese Egg Tarts?! Well, I am sure you can’t imagine why they have such wonderful yummylicious egg tarts but we don’t have it here!



The Famous Blueberry Portuguese Egg Tarts from KFC this season!!!


The hot piping egg custard centre in the crème-brulee-liked was silky smooth. The pastry shell was buttery and fragrant. Additional with a spoonful of blueberry gave its name --- Blueberry Portuguese Egg Tarts. Honestly speaking, this was the best Portuguese Egg Tarts I ever had. I had 3 in a row. The BEST the BEST the BEST!!! My friend, Jimmy who went to Shanghai last CNY got their Yam Egg Tarts. Since then, he kept promoting that China KFC’s egg tart is a Must to try. Sadly, it was not the Yam Season during my trip. i didn't get to try the Yam Egg Tarts.



Priced at RMB 5.5 for Blueberry Portuguese Egg Tart and RMB 5 for Portuguese Egg Tart. Purchase 5 and get 1 for free. Priced slightly higher but you will never regret from having them. This is the only egg tart so far that really really really melt my heart.




Besides serving hot, you can try to refrigerate the egg tarts for about 5.5 hours. It turns differently. I had 2 kept in the fridge and treated them as my breakfast. My Oh My! They were completely different. They changed into creamy-liked egg custard. Just like those creams in the cream puff.



And, I da-bao-ed a dozen of egg tarts and had them flied back (to KL) with me for my family. They loved them too!

eeep. i dont know if the stink tofus all over the world smell alike or not, but i had the stinking tofu once in the sri petaling pasar malam, gosh, once i put in my mouth, i puked immediately. it was like eating shit literally. =/ so i guess if i ever see it elsewhere again, i am never going to challenge it ever

jdexign said...

我試過香港的臭豆腐﹐回味無窮啊﹗不知這家的味道如何?

感覺上外國的KFC都在菜單上花心思哦。

ai wei said...

xin,
lol, i tried the one at tmn connaught pasar malam and this one from shenzhen. it is totally different. the stinky tofu in KL is too extreme. smell like those smelly longkang. but the one in shenzhen doesn't have those extreme smell. yes, there is a little smelly but not as smelly as the longkang.

it is really yummy. had them til pimples all out. aiks...


jdexign,
香港的也很好吃???好像试一试!有机会到香港我可要吃!这家的味道很赞。总比KL的好吃得多了。一吃就上瘾。。。而且他们给的香菜和腌制的萝卜干,都是大把大把那样加上去的。超舍手。

对呀,国外的快餐总是有那么多的新鲜感。
