Ma po silken tofu - Mister Jiu's

Mister Jiu’s, San Francisco CA

I think Mission Chinese Food got me into loving mapo tofu because have such a spicy and flavorful version. This version at Mister Jiu’s wasn’t nearly as spicy, but it was flavorful in its own right. I love the fine texture of the dish, and it tasted great over rice.
