#98 These foods are stinky, but delicious! 中国有哪些臭但是好吃的食物?

大家好!欢迎回来MaoMi Chinese!臭的东西会好吃吗?很多人一定会说:“怎么可能?”但是,在中国,有一些食物既臭又好吃。这些食物是怎么样的呢?你又吃过多少呢?今天,我们就来聊一聊,那些虽然臭但是好吃的食物吧。

有一种水果在中国特别受欢迎,那就是榴莲。榴莲是来自泰国的水果,后来在中国越来越多人喜欢吃榴莲。第一次吃榴莲的时候,你可能会觉得很臭,甚至还可能会吐。但是当你吃了一次以后,你很可能会爱上这个味道,甚至还会觉得它很香,也很甜。在中国,人们还会用榴莲来做甜品,比如榴莲蛋糕。人们甚至还会用榴莲做菜,比如榴莲火锅,榴莲炖鸡肉,等等。

如果你喜欢吃豆腐,你可能听说过臭豆腐。臭豆腐是怎么来的呢?听说,很久以前有人要出门,回来以后,他家里的豆腐因为放了太久,已经臭了。这个人把臭了的豆腐油炸,发现豆腐闻起来很臭,但是吃起来特别香。现在,很多工厂把豆腐发酵,变成比较干净卫生的臭豆腐。臭豆腐在不同的地方有不同的味道,但是最出名的是湖南长沙的臭豆腐。人们先油炸臭豆腐,再加上辣椒和其他酱料,一份闻起来特别臭但是吃起来特别香的长沙臭豆腐就做好了。因为以前毛泽东喜欢吃长沙的臭豆腐,所以只要说起臭豆腐,人们就会想起湖南长沙。除了长沙臭豆腐,也有一些地方会用臭豆腐来做火锅,这样的火锅也叫“臭臭锅”。对于臭豆腐的味道,每个人的看法都不一样。喜欢的人特别喜欢,不喜欢的人特别讨厌。如果你觉得自己很勇敢,你可以去中国试一试臭豆腐。

说起又臭又香的食物,那么螺蛳粉一定少不了。在中国南方,人们喜欢吃米饭,也喜欢吃米粉。米粉,就是用米做的面条。在广西的柳州,有一种米粉非常出名,那就是螺蛳粉。螺蛳,在广西话里是河里的田螺。柳州人用田螺做成汤,放进米粉,有些人也会放一些肉和蔬菜。最后,人们一定会加上酸笋。酸笋,是发酵过的竹笋,闻起来很臭,吃起来酸酸的,辣辣的。有些人说,螺蛳粉闻起来就像放了很久的尿一样,但是吃起来又很香。很多人吃之前觉得很恶心,吃了以后却一发不可收拾。一发不可收拾,是一个成语,意思是开始了以后就不能停下来了。现在,柳州有很多工厂,做包装的螺蛳粉。在中国的购物网站上,螺蛳粉是年轻人们最喜欢买的食物了。

你吃过这些又臭又香的食物吗?觉得怎么样呢?你吃过其他臭臭的食物吗?欢迎在评论区给我们留言哦!

Hello everyone! Welcome back to MaoMi Chinese! Do smelly things taste good? Many people will definitely say, "How is that possible?" However, in China, there are some foods that are both smelly and delicious. What are these foods like? How much of them have you tried? Today, let's talk about those stinky but delicious foods.

One fruit that is particularly popular in China is the durian. Durian is a type of fruit from Thailand. Gradually more and more people like to eat durian in China. When you eat durian for the first time, you may feel very smelly, and you may even throw up. But after you eat it once, you are likely to fall in love with the taste, and even feel that it is very fragrant and sweet. In China, people also use durian to make desserts, such as durian cake. People even use durian to make dishes, such as durian hot pot, durian stewed chicken, and so on.

If you love tofu, you've probably heard of stinky tofu. How did people make stinky tofu? Long time ago, someone went out. When he came back, the tofu in his house was stinky because it had been left for too long. This person deep-fried the stinky tofu and found that although the tofu smelled stinky, it tasted delicious. Now, many factories ferment tofu to turn it into a relatively clean and hygienic stinky tofu. Stinky tofu has different flavors in different places, but the most famous one is the stinky tofu in Changsha, Hunan. People first deep-fry stinky tofu, and then add chili and other sauces. A Changsha stinky tofu that smells bad but tastes delicious is ready. Because Mao Zedong liked to eat stinky tofu in Changsha in the past, people would think of Changsha, Hunan whenever they mentioned stinky tofu. In addition to Changsha stinky tofu, there are also some places that use stinky tofu to make hot pot. This kind of hot pot is also called "stinky pot". Everyone has a different opinion on the taste of stinky tofu. Those who like it would love it, and those who don't like it would hate it. If you're brave, you can go to China and try stinky tofu.

Speaking of smelly and fragrant food, then rice noodles in river snails’ broth must be mentioned. In southern China, people like to eat rice, but also like to eat rice noodles. Rice noodles are noodles made of rice. In Liuzhou, Guangxi, there is a very famous rice noodle, that is rice noodles in river snails’ broth. 螺蛳, in Guangxi dialect, are snails in the river. People in Liuzhou use snails to make broth, then put rice noodles in it. Some people also put some meat and vegetables. Finally, people will definitely add picked bamboo shoots. Picked bamboo shoots are fermented bamboo shoots that smell bad and taste sour and spicy. Some people say that snail powder smells like urine stayed for a long time, but it tastes delicious. Many people think it is disgusting before they eat, but after eating it, they can’t stop. 一发不可收拾 is an idiom, which means that once you start, you can't stop. Now, there are many factories in Liuzhou that make packaged rice noodles in river snails’ soup. On Chinese shopping websites, rice noodles in river snails’ broth are the most popular food for young people.

Have you ever eaten these smelly and delicious foods? What do you think? Have you ever eaten any other stinky food? Welcome to share your experience with us!

  1. I just learned about this podcast, and I am a Mandarin beginner. On a trip to Malaysia, a “friend” took me on a walk to get durian. As we approached the market a nasty smell similar to sewage hit me and I asked what it was. He said that it was what we were getting ready to buy and eat. Luckily, I am very adventurous with my food, so I was still able to taste it. Yes, I like durian! It is not a favorite, but I will eat it fresh any time it is available to me. Many establishments post signs “NO DURIAN” due to the smell. Thank you for the memories and smells to go along with them. I am not sure I could get stinky tofu in my mouth if the urine comparison hits me. Yikes!
