The area is small but very characteristic. There is a very large IP cartoon image "Smelly", although it is in the famous Changsha Taiping Street snack street, but after entering here, the style is completely different. The entrance to the museum is a secret passage. On the one hand, the raw material of the beans, you can see a group of rounded beans admire you in the bounce, and listen carefully to the sound of the beans. The projection at corner is an enlightenment book about stinky tofu prepared by the museum. Why is the stinky tofu in Changsha so dark? Where does the smell of stinky tofu come from? Here are the answers. From beans, to tofu, to stinky tofu. The basic production, halogen production, modulation, soaking, leaching and other links are displayed one by one. This is the inheritance history of stinky tofu. After Enlightenment, it is natural to experience learning. Once again, you can see rows of neat and conspicuous pottery jars along the wall, as well as display cabinets with a full grid of surrounding, filled with a variety of raw materials. If you don't pay attention to the small label above, it's hard to recognize it by yourself. Experience equipment is generally a popular item, remember to plan well. There is a test bench for simulating the brine. You can try the modulation according to your own ideas. After the operation is completed, the system will score according to the brine you made. There is also a stinky tofu lab that has been hand-made, smelling the taste of brine, there is a surprise (with surprises), has "travel through time and space" to participate in the "smelly tofu king competition" homemade comics Wait. Of course, inevitably, I have to give myself a "homemade" stinky tofu. Of course, after a process of experience, a hot and fresh secret stinky tofu will be released.
