Ma po tofu - China King Restaurant
Braised tofu with minced pork, hot pepper sauce, scallions. $6.95

This looks messy and gross, but it tasted great. I appreciated that they kept the pork at a sizable mince (it felt more hearty). This dish could have used a bit more heat, but the flavors were solid.

Eric’s spicy eggplant – Eric’s Restaurant

Eric's spicy eggplant - Eric's Restaurant
Eggplant with chicken, shrimp, red bell pepper, and basil in a special spicy sauce. $11.95
Eric’s Restaurant, San Francisco CA

The price has gone up since last time, but only slightly. I still really like this dish from Eric’s. There’s a good variety of flavors and the sauce is tasty. It could be a bit spicier though since it’s advertised that way.
