Mapo tofu (or Mapo doufu) is one of the most popular Chinese dishes ever. This spicy stir fry tofu dish hails 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 then transitions into a tongue-tingling sensation from the floral-fragranced Sichuan peppercorns. 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!

Optional: add your own ground pork, beef, or chicken for a heartier meal.

“For me the apex of Sichuan food, my absolute favorite, is a tofu dish. THIS tofu dish, the legendary mapo 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
