Fat Sister is the person in Hangzhou who is renowned for making the best stinky tofu - even Shen Hongfei, one of the country's best-known food critics, testifies to this claim. Twenty-eight years ago, Fat Sister stood with her pan in front of West Lake Cinema, running her small stinky tofu business from 10pm to the early hours of the next day. People remembered her wonderful cooking skills, but didn't remember her real name, which explains why over time she has come to be known simply as Fat Sister. Watching the process of stinky tofu cooking, one may assume it is an easy job as the cook only puts the tofu in the oil and fries it, however, the timing, the amount of oil and the tofu's quality all matter. Fat Sister makes her own stinky tofu rather than buying it from the market, and her 28 years of experience have allowed her to get the timing perfect. Her stinky tofu is crispy outside, tender inside, and in accord with the slogan "smells smelly, tastes tasty."
