    Mapo Tofu



    Mapo Tofu (Chinese: 麻婆豆腐; Pinyin: Mápó dòufu) is a popular Chinese dish from the Szechuan (Sichuan) province. It is a combination of tofu (bean curd) and minced meat, usually pork, in a spicy bean-based sauce, sometimes with other ingredients such as water chestnuts, onions or wood ear fungus. The name means "Pocked-Face Lady's Tofu," and is said to come from a (possibly fictional) food vendor by the name of Ma, who made and sold the dish. Another possible explanation stems from an alternate definition of 麻, meaning "numb": the Szechuan peppercorns used in the dish can slightly numb the diner's mouth.

    True Mapo doufu is powerfully spicy with both conventional "heat" spiciness and the characteristic "ma-la" spiciness of Szechuan cuisine. The authentic form of the dish is increasingly easier to find outside China today, but usually in Szechuanese restaurants that do not adapt the dish for non-Szechuanese tastes.

    Often the dish is adulterated, with its spiciness severely toned down to widen its appeal. This happens even in Chinese restaurants, commonly those not specialising in Szechuan cuisine. In American Chinese cuisine the dish is often made without meat to appeal to vegetarians, and with very little spice.

    Ah, yes, Kidd! I want a dish of mapo doufu too! And I love it spicy spicy hot! I hate it when they tone it down, it doesn't give the real authentic Sichuan taste.

    I mean when I go to Thai restaurants, they always have the option of making the dishes spicy-er for people who can handle the spice and why can't they do the same in Chinese restaurants.

    does anybody know any healthy places to eat out? it seems like every time i go to a restaurant, i'm cheating and having too many carbs and calories. and a salad isn't real food! -_- even a place like knowfat!, the burros have as many calories as a big mac.

    Good old fashioned chocolate chip cookies. Or even better, bake them using 1/2 butterscotch chips, 1/2 dark chocolate chunks. Sweetness of butterscotch is balanced by the richness of the dark chocolate. Out of the oven and still slightly warm, dunked in a nice cold glass of milk.

    As far as cookies go, I don't care what flavour they are. They could be oatmeal raisin. As long as they're big and chewy, I can munch on one without effort! The chewier the better - of course, it is the FAT in the cookies that makes them chewy. Too bad cookies aren't low-calorie foods and high in saturated fat

    a lot of european countries have their own versions. it's just a puff pastry with cream filling. you could make a greek one with phyllo dough.

    an italian one has mascarpone.

    actually i think the ones in boston taste better. the place where i go to, to buy pastries, all their pastry chefs are direct from italy and speak no english. and plus, boston has a huge, huge, HUGE italian population. it's one of the reasons why most ppl here are catholic.

    in nyc, however, it seems like most places are run by 3rd generation italian americans, and anybody who makes really good pastries moves on to work at fancy shmancy restaurants.
