Picture of the Day: Fu Yu Cheesecake

Fu yu is pungent smelling fermented tofu. It's usually used in a sauce to accompany water spinach or morning glory, but I've since discovered it has other uses too.

Some like to equate fu yu as a Chinese cheese, though it is quite sharp to eat straight.

Which is why Sha Tin 18 at Hyatt Regency Hong Kong, Sha Tin in the New Territories has incorporated fu yu in its cheesecake.

While it sounds strange, it really works.

The strong flavour of the fu yu is tamed by the sweetness of the dessert, but there's still a bit of a savoury taste to it.

So if you ever head to Sha Tin check out the Hyatt Regency's fu yu cheesecake. And while you're there have the Peking duck too.
