當我在美國唸書的時候

學校有好多韓國學生

加上在夏威夷有很多的韓菜館

因此從那時起愛上韓國泡菜

但有一天發現在夏威夷似乎沒有吃過臺式泡菜

於是跟一位同樣台灣去的同學﹐學會了如何做臺式泡菜

 

昨天突然想要吃臺式泡菜

我便到超市買了一顆高麗菜

回家後﹐我便把高麗菜解剖

再切上三根紅蘿蔔及兩根小黃瓜

加入一些鹽巴使它們軟化及入味

 

大約兩小時後﹐我用清水洗淨

切一根鮮辣椒

一些嫩薑絲

倒入3小匙的小米醋及少許的糖

將它們攪拌後﹐送入冰箱

接下來的工作就是等待一晚

 

今天吃中飯時

我把冰箱的泡菜拿出來

味道還真的是不錯

這讓我想起了小時候(大約5-6歲起)

有一位外省老伯伯

每隔一天就會踩著他的三輪車叫賣臭豆腐

我們全家人最愛吃他的臭豆腐了

特別是加上他自製的泡菜 (每次總是會求伯伯給多一點泡菜)

真的是配﹐令人讚不絕口

 

我可以說是吃他的臭豆腐長大的

從最早一塊豆腐3元台幣

吃到後來一塊8元台幣 (又看出我有多老了 : O )

每回只要聽到從他音響中傳出特殊的臭豆腐歌

"----------臭哦哦哦哦豆---------腐耶-------"

幾乎家家戶戶就會趕快到廚房拿出盤子去買他的臭豆腐

深怕晚了一部就得等兩天後才吃得到伯伯美味的臭豆腐

 

大約到了我唸國中時

臭豆腐伯伯突然不見了

還記得我剛上高中那年

有一天聽到那熟悉的臭豆腐歌

我還以為聽錯了

開門探頭一看

還真是他

我飛快的衝進廚房

拿了一個盤子就往外跑向他的三輪車

沒想到伯伯還記得我

他用那外省口音的國語對著我說

"長那麼大啦!!以前小不點兒一個!!!"

那晚也是我最後一次看到他了

 

有人說伯伯大陸落葉歸根去了

我不知道是真是假

不過我一直記得他和他那好吃的臭豆腐﹐泡菜

以及那特殊的臭豆腐歌

陪我度過那段成長的過程

 

There were many Korean students in the university when I was studying in the US. Also, there are many Koran restaurants in Hawaii and people can always taste Korean Kimchi. Therefor, I started like it since then. However, I realized that I have never seen Taiwanese Kimchi in Hawaii, so one day I learned how to make Taiwanese Kimchi myself from one of Taiwanese students.

 

Yesterday, I suddently feel like to eat Taiwanese Kimchi, so I went to the supermarket and bought a cabbage. I started making my own Kimchi with it when I got home. I cut 3 of carrots and 2 cucumbers with the cabbage. I also added some salt with them together and set it aside. After about 2 hours, I wash them with water and then I added a fresh chili, ginger, some sugar and vinegar. I set them inside the frige over night afterwards.

 

I took the kimchi out during the lunch time today. It tasted really good and it reminded me a nice memory when I was a little child (when I was around 5-6 years old). There were an old uncle (to me at that time) who was from China originally, always came to our community and sale the stinky toufu (a special traditional Taiwanese food, most of westerners cannot take it because of its smell. It just like cheese to most of Asians I guess) with his tricycle every other day. My family loved his stinky toufu, especially eating with his home made Kimchi(we always asked him for some extra kimchi). That was something really delicious which you are not able to describe with words.

 

I was grown up with his stinky toufu. I remembered that we bought it started with 3 NT for a piece of toufu to 8 NT for a piece. (you can see how old I am already :O) Everytime when we heard his special "Stinky Toufu Song" sang like this: Wei----------, Stinky Touuuuuuuufu wei........, almost every family will took a dish out from the kitchens to buy his stinkytoufu. If seems like everybody was afraid to be late because you have to wait for another two days if you missed it.

 

When I began with junior high school, the Uncle Stinky toufu was gone. One day, I heard the familiar song again when I was a freshman in senior high school. I thought I heard it wrong but when I opened the door and take a look on the street, it was exactly him, the Uncle Stinky toufu. I therefore ran and took a dish out from the kitchen and rushed out again to buy his stinky toufu. I was surprised that he still remembered me. He looked at me and said with his strong accent in Mandarin to me:  " What a big boy you are not!! You were such a little kid when I just knew you many years ago!!!" That was the last time I saw him because he never showed up again after that evening.

 

Someone said that he went back to China. I am not sure if that was true but I can always remebmer him, his delicious stinky toufu, kimchi and the special song. They were a big and special parts of my childhood life.

    連兒子回台北還會帶些回去.說要拿到辦公室吃.因會燻臭整個辦公室.

  •  輕煙飄過
  • 兒時的美好記憶,外加自己動手做的台式泡菜,濃濃的家鄉味,聊以慰藉國外遊子的心。
  • 在外也只能這樣解解想念家鄉美食的惆悵
