“For me the apex of Sichuan food, my absolute favorite, is a tofu dish. THIS tofu dish, the legendary mapo tofu, or “pock marked granny tofu”. Ground pork of beef, cubes of bean curd in a rich, deeply nuanced fiery but intensely satisfying sauce of chili oil, bean paste, garlic shoots, and ground Sichuan peppercorns. This dish, done right, has got…it...all!” - Anthony Bourdain, Parts Unknown

Mapo Tofu is an elegant tofu dish from the Sichuan province in China. Mapo Tofu has three taste dimensions which makes it the ultimate "experience" dish.

When you first taste mapo tofu, you are welcomed with a spicy chili flavor which is then softened by a numbing sensation from the Sichuan peppercorn. Finally, you notice the soft and creamy texture of the silken tofu and the aromatics of the steamed jasmine rice.  

It's an authentic dish not to be missed!
