It is one of the most classical dish in Sichuan Food. Nowadays Ma Po Bean Curd has been a common dish on Chinese people's table. Ma Po Bean Curd includes the taste of savoury, soft, spicy, pungent.
As far as I'm concerned, Ma Po Bean Curd is a quite appetizing dish. It adds lots of delicacy to the supper.
The first time I knew this dish is in the cafeteria in my Middle School. That time I felt this dish was very tasty. And when I ate the dish again in a Sichuan restaurant later, I found traditional Pork with garlic sauce was spicier.
Anyway, this dish is also one of the popular Sichuan Dishes. If you want to try Pork with Garlic Sauce, I’d like to recommend a Sichuan restaurant in Shanghai: Yuxing (Number 333 on North Chengdu Road). Their dishes are modern.
