Stinky tofu was never my cup of tea, but Lin's tofu definitely blew my mind. Their tofu was incredibly crispy outside but soft inside, while the sauce and Taiwanese kimchi match with its tofu really well. Get a big plate (100NTD) and it came in with big portion, it's cheap and yummy, I will return if I visit Taitung again!... More

Tried the stinky tofu, taste is not bad but found it a bit dry. It's not a must try in my opinion. It's inexpensive though, only 50ntd for 6 piece, around usd1.8

This place does not smell as bad as most other places that serve this dish. In the past, the stench has kept me from wanting to try stinky tofu. This place has big vents that carry the odor away so that it's not unbearably stinky. Good place to bring someone who is new to stinky tofu as it will not... More

The place was popular. We were there around 5pm and there were already a long line. The lady at the counter took orders from people in the line in advance (3 or 4 orders at a time). That's really efficient. There were other items to order, but people simply go for stinky tofu, ordering simply Big or Small. The taste... More

the deep fried stinky tofu is okay, basil on top is a nice touch, but portion is a bit small, price is also higher than average consider the small portion.

I ate there yesterday, and got a small plate for 50 TWD. Because there's a sign that says to tell them if you can't eat spicy food, I got a bit worried, but I found that the sauce wasn't actually spicy. It was sweet and fragrant. The tofu itself was really crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside.
