Rumored to have been first created during The Qing Dynasty (1644-1911), this dish was enjoyed by the Kang Xi Emperor, making it famous throughout China. The dish smells strongly, but has a very light and delicate flavor. Most visitors to the Huangshan area are scared off by the smell, but they are missing a wonderful dish. Traditionally sold in little roadside stalls, the dish can now be found in many restaurants. The fermented tofu is fried, and then many spices are added to it.
